The Knott or Knott Farm.

1600 - 1700
The Knott was owned by the Sherburne family. They were landed gentry.[1] Page 32 mentions John Sherburne and his wife Margaret.

The farm house that stands today was built late 1800's and is just under 150 square meters.

In Oct 2019 Knott Farm including 97 acres was sold at auction.[2] In Feb 2020 the farm was bought by Harry Roper, taking the land off the property and adding it to his own dairy farm Lyme House Farm.[3]
