. The Victoria history of the county of Surrey. Natural history. A HISTORY OF SURREY insertions of the eighteenth century. The repair of some old cottages at Wonersh, that had evidently been weavers' cottages, showed that all the windows on the upper floors had superseded these open bars, the sockets of which were disclosed in the sills. Such a barred window and shutter remains at the end of the bedroom of No. 2 cottage at Darbyn's Brook,* and plenty of them remain in outhouses. In the middle of the seventeenth century arose a fashion of square faced muUions to casements ; at the back of 25 High Street, Guildford, are some of these that show that the effect was a care- fully thought out part of the design (Fig. 17). Door frames were generally Tudor- arched up to the end of the sixteenth cen- tury, and are to be found at such houses as Crowhurst, Leigh Place, Alfold House, Tangley, Unsted, Shoelands, Crossways and many others. The earlier specimens have tracery or shields in the spandrels. The square doors have heavily moulded frames with modifi- cations of the usual late Gothic stop; a form of this, more ornate than usual, is shown on the illustra- tion from the White Hart (Fig. 18). There are few remains of the heavy early doors, but there are excellent examples of the ornamental doors of the early seventeenth century. Of those with a radiating head. Abbot's Hospital possesses a probably unequalled series ; the form is found all over England, but this neighbourhood is rich in them. Various other fanciful patterns are found, made before classic design introduced a dull uniformity. In the early seventeenth century the arches and old Gothic mouldings to frames were given up, and we get both door and window frames rusticated and carved in a very graceful way.
