"Tudor House" must have been the home of an important local family. It is in a prominent position in the old part of the town.
It has clearly been subject to development and extension, possibly quite early in its' life. I think it's a fantastic-looking building.
The need for wider roads has left the building slightly unhappily crammed into the three-way junction of three ancient streets, one of them called The Hundred.
A "Hundred" is a Saxon geographical measure and a means of subdividing counties into administrative areas. Each Hundred contained enough land for 100 households - 100 "Hides". They were headed by a "hundred man" or "hundred eoldar" who was responsible for military, administrative, judicial and taxation matters.

There were four "Virgates" in a hide, a virgate was the amount of land which could be maintained by two oxen in a year. More - here -.
