    Shacklewell Manor House, Hackney - home to four generations of Tyssens
    Shacklewell Manor House, Hackney - home to four generations of Tyssens
    The manor house at Shacklewell was probably first built in the early 16th century for Sir John Heron or his son Giles, who was the son-in-law of Sir Thomas More and who was executed for treason in 1540. The only records of its appearance, however, are two very similar prints published about 1800 and presumably based on an earlier drawing, which show it as refronted in the mid 17th century for the Rowe family. There is also a brief description from 1720, when it was called an ancient manor house and was said to be a brick building of three storeys with tall sash windows, a pair of Dutch gables and glass displaying the arms of the Rowes. It was assessed at 25 hearths for the Hearth Tax in 1665 and 1672, making it the largest mansion in Hackney. The illustration shows that the 17th century front was an elaborate piece of Artisan Mannerist brickwork, and that it had a contemporary two-storey porch, with a first-floor closet room supported on columns below.
    After the death of Francis Tyssen in 1717 the house seems to have been let, and in 1743 a Shoreditch carpenter assigned the lease to a Clerkenwell brewer. By 1762 it had been demolished and twelve new houses had been built on the three acre site. Ancient gate piers still survived in 1824 but were later removed.
    Descent: Sir John Heron (d. 1522); to son, Giles Heron (executed 1540); to Crown; granted 1543 to Sir Ralph Sadleir; restored by 1554 to Thomas Heron, who sold 1566 to Sir Thomas Rowe, kt. (d. 1570); to son, Sir Henry Rowe, kt. (d. 1612); to son, Sir Henry Rowe, kt. (d. 1661), who probably refronted the house; to grandson, Henry Rowe (d. 1670); to son, Henry Rowe, who sold 1685 to Francis Tyssen (c.1625-99); to son, Francis Tyssen (c.1653-1710); to son, Francis Tyssen (1690-1717); to son, Francis John Tyssen (1717-81) who let and later demolished the house.
