sample cover letters Thruxton Court was built in around the 16th century close to the church, and underwent restorations and improvements during the following three centuries.
Thruxton court was occupied by the Dean family in the early 19th century, and in 1840, J. Dean put up for sale all of his valuable livestock, which comprised 36 pure bred Herefordshire cattle; 200 prime fat and store sheep of Ryeland and New Leicester breed; 8 wagon horses and mares; a quiet gelding; a four year old mare, and three cart colts. There was also a collection of farming equipment including a gig and harness. However, it was not the end of the Deans at Thruxton Court, as can be seen below in 1851.
