History Sir William More, a direct ancestor of the More-Molyneux family, built the present House to entertain Queen Elizabeth 1, who visited on four occasions. It has stayed in the same family ever since and continues to be a family home. Much of the stone used to build the House, came from the ruins of the Cistercian Waverley Abbey, near Farnham. The House is rich in historic artefacts including King George IV's coronation chair. The paintings serve as a constant reminder to the history, including portraits of monarchs.
