The Church Manor house is a grade II listed building and was included in the β€œInventory of the Monuments of Hertfordshire” in 1910
The parish of Bishop’s Stortford comprised of three manors: The Manor of Stortford, The Manor of Picotts and β€œThe Church Manor” which replaced β€œThe Manor of the rectory” Manor House in the late 16th century.
The width of the original timber framed Church Manor House was quite narrow suggesting it began life as a late medieval open-hall house. In the late 18th century it was heightened to three storeys. Further alterations included sash windows, and in the early 19th century most of the house was enclosed with brick giving it the appearance of a Stuart Mansion. The Interior houses wood panelling in the gallery and in the old parlour accompanied by oak beams throughout the house. Being a listed building there is no doubt these features still exist to this day.
Church Manor House was sold at auction in 1935 by Goddard & Smith….

Now Proudly on offer… as per title β€œThe Church Manor” c1900’s Antique Steamer Trunk Coffee table which started life as a heavy duty metal steamer trunk banded and riveted with Brass bull-nose top and bottom corners. Both ends of the trunk have Metal Shanghoi Handles and the front is home to an original Britannia Corbin Cabinet lock .
The addition of the 6mm tempered glass to this Antique trunk makes it perfectly functional once again and with the original name and address superbly on display it’s truly a standout piece in the home and would be an interior designers dream!
The standard height for a coffee table is 18” inch, This steamer truck stands at 14” inch so could be called what’s known as a low coffee table but as previously said it’s still perfectly functional and a huge conversation piece with the added provenance. The most notable owner of Church Manor House was Lady Margaret Denny.
As one can see This steamer trunk bares the name A.ROSE who’s family history we have been currently unable to trace although we do believe the trunk dates to the early 1900’s.
Overall a truly one off unique piece (needless to say) and in as-found condition, This has not been tinkered with, Original hinges etc and genuine wear and character that can only be achieved with age.

Measurements in inches : 44 x 14 x 21”
