Bessingham Manor North Norfolk



The relatively small estate in Bessingham was bought by Johnathan Spurrell in 1766 after his elder brother William inherited the family estate at Thurgarton (the family home still stands and is now known as Thurgarton Old Hall). Johnathan built a new manor house for himself at the southern end of the village in the early 1800s and founded the village that now exists. Upon his death in 1837, the estate passed to his second son, the 20-year-old Daniel Spurrell, who after coming into some money in around 1869, decided to build yet another manor house, the one which now stands. The house that his father built was destroyed by fire as the new one was being built. The remains can still be seen on the adjoining farmland to the house.
