Description The home of the Dunscombe family in the 18th and 19th centuries, it was noted by Wilson as the seat of Mr. Dunscombe in 1786. The house was occupied by George Dunscombe in 1814 and by Nicholas Dunscombe in the early 1850s when it was valued at £55. Still valued at the same amount in 1906 when it was occupied by Robert Dunscombe. The house is no longer extant and the Bon Secours Health Care unit is now located at this site.
