"Dagenhams was listed among important seats in 1594, and was depicted in 1663 as a gabled house, built round a courtyard, within a square moat. Sir Henry Wright, Bt. (d. 1664), rebuilt it on a modest scale c. 1660. Pepys, who visited Dagenhams in July 1665, said that it was the most noble and pretty house, for its size, that he had ever seen. [You can read his diary entries about his visits at http://www.bibliomania.com/NonFiction/Pepys/Dia... - (click on 1665-66,) use your browser's Find function to search for Dagenhams.] It had 23 hearths in 1662 and 24 in 1670."
