Thomas Wendy died here.

In the Victorian period the original fireplace and staircase were moved to Bourn Hall. Other materials were re-used to build The Maltings and Oak Cottage.

Queen Elizabeth I stayed at The Manor in 1564 and continued her progress to Cambridge along Cantelupe Road.

In 1664 Sir Thomas Wendy paid hearth tax on 22 fireplaces. Only 7 houses in the county paid more.
