Tyes Place, (fn. 13) east of the green, is an L-shaped house, of which the east wing incorporates a medieval hall. A floor was inserted in the 16th century, perhaps by William Butler, whose daughter Margaret in 1588 married Lawrence Washington, a direct ancestor of George Washington. Externally the house has been refaced with brick and tile-hanging, and the whole was enlarged some forty years ago; but some of the rooms retain their open-timbered ceilings and have wide fireplaces, that in the dining-room having a Tudor arch to the opening, surmounted by a carved arabesque frieze.
