  • House & Family History: Stafford is a house built of a pale gray limestone, with ashlar and rubble, with two facades: the east of 1633 and the west, by Benjamin Ferrey, of 1848-50. There is also a two-story gabled porch. During World War II Czech and Polish pilots from nearby RAF Warmwell were billeted here.
