Maunsel House , North Newton, TA7 0BU, Bridgwater
Maunsel House is a magnificent 13th Century Manor set in 100 acres of stunning parkland at the heart of a sprawling 2,000 acre estate, comprising of farms, lakes, woodlands, walnut groves, orchards.
There are many artefacts at Maunsel dating back to the Roman period. The first VIP visitor who stayed was Alfred the Great in 878 when he fought the Danes.
Brictworld the Saxon lived at Maunsel in 1066 and was replaced by Count Eustance of Boulogne in 1086 (mentioned in the Domesday Book) when the house was called ‘Maunsel’, being derived from the French meaning ‘Sleeve of Land’.
At the time of Henry II, William De Erleigh granted Maunsel to Phillip Arbalistarius As his daughter, Mabel. His son, Philip, married the daughter of Sir Hugh d’Auderville and assumed the surname of Maunsel. Philip de Maunsel became progenitor of the family with the surname ‘Maunsell’ or ‘Mansel’. The estate was passed onto the Bacon family of Norfolk and then to the Slade family.
