David Barclay, the Quaker banker and abolitionist, bought the manor in 1769, and enlarged the house. A plan by Capability Brown the following year introduced a serpentine lake. Barclay sold it in 1793, after the death of his second wife, to William Cunliffe Shawe, and it passed in 1796 to Daniel Giles.
In 2012, it was for sale, "offers in excess of £3,900,000". As of 2015, it was owned by Jeremy Langmead, the former editor of Wallpaper* magazine and Esquire magazin, who used to be married to writer India Knight. In 2017 it was sold to James and Claire Pearce who plans to restore it to its original state and use it as a family home for them and their three children. It has taken nearly three years to date to obtain all the required Planning and other permissions.
