Abstract or Summary
  • This comparison study involved the exploration of architecture and social life of the thirteenth century Medieval, sixteenth century Tudor and eighteenth century Georgian periods. Within the architectural and social categories, the specific objective was to examine the changes in the five hundred year period. Three specific houses were chosen as examples from each time period as well as a general study of the architectural styles during the same time. Considered in the architectural study were style, plan and its components, materials, cost, craftsmen, artisans and laborers, landscape, sanitation, water supply, architect, furnishings and owner. The comparison of social life involved business, entertainment, travel, education, food, clothing and religion. The comparison of the architecture and social life gave insight to understanding the forces which shaped the manor houses of each period. Materials, for instance, their availability and function, i.e., defense, pragmatism and status-giving qualities, were a determinate in the final appearance of the houses. The broad scope of sources for the study included original building and household records, oral history, current and historic printed material which revealed and reaffirmed the change from the uncomfortable medieval dwellings and the communal society of the thirteenth century; to the more accommodating and hospitable houses of the sixteenth century Tudor Renaissance period; to the grand edifices and privacy of the eighteenth century Georgian period. The social life changed similarly from the simple, communal life of the medieval household to the sixteenth century Tudor house with many rooms offering social and individual privacy. The eighteenth century Georgian house became a massive inhuman building where individual apartments and numerous rooms separated individuals as well as classes.
