It was built by Edwin Skrymsher of Norbury Manor, Eccleshall, in the mid-17th century. The porch carries a datestone bearing the date 1665. Skrymsher also re-built Aqualate Hall nearby later in the 17th century.
The monument outside the Hall is the alabaster tomb of Sir Thomas Skrymsher Kt. of Aqualate ( d 1633) and his wife, Anne (d 1656) (ancestors of Edwin) who lived at Aqualate Hall.
