in consequence of the missive, Ah yes. Makes sense. Thanks, penned by Reeba
Confusion is that we now use "Manor" to refer to a house, but it used to mean the whole property, more like "park". And the house was the "manor house" (and there might be other residences on the property like a "dower house," a "cottage," a "rectory," etc.)
