[1] The Luccombe Tithe Map shows a building in this general location within a large garden (see MEM24706). The stables for the building are to the southwest (MEM22450). The house is labelled 606, which the Apportionment states was owned and occupied by the Reverend Thomas Fisher and was in Glebe ownership.
