History Manor Houses of the Isle of Wight

Yaverland Manor

REF NR: 515

"The manor-house is, with the exception of that at Arreton, the most picturesque in the East Medine. Its grouping with the church adds greatly to the effect of its position on the rising ground above the road. The original house was a rectangular building probably erected by German Richards. In the reign of James I the two wings were added, and the date over the staircase entry (1620) with the initials I. E. R. refers to this addition by Edward Richards, probably on his son's second marriage with Elizabeth Hungerford. In 1701 some alterations or repairs must have taken place under Edward Richards, who at that date may have enlarged the drawing room by encroaching on the great hall. The panelling has all disappeared, but the staircase, a remarkably good example of the Jacobean period, still remains."
