Full Description

On the site of the Village Hall (opposite village shop) once stood `a weather-stained little cottage of very great age - quite unfit for habitation..... it was called the Manor House, but whether the name had been given to it in pleasantry or whether it had served the purpose (or was the remains?) of some manorial office it is difficult to determine' (S1). Med structure? No further details.
Note: The location of Burton/Burtyus manor (and its manor house) a sub-manor of Freckenham, owned by Simon Ffolkes in 1641, is unknown.
N.B. High probability of Burtons Manor House being 'Street Farm', North Street, which was in possession of Mrs Fanny Hand at Enclosure (1824), who claimed title to Lordship of Burtons Manor. the 'Manor House' above mentioned, if related to a manor at all, would probably be Beck or Bek Manor, which extended from the Isleham border (& into Isleham) to The Street.
