This report is primarily limited to the development of smaller houses in the County of Rutlandshire between 1550 and 1750, but since this county lies astride two territories showing different structural patterns, some areas lying beyond the county boundary have been investigated. The "low-land" type of timber frame, found in Mediaeval small houses and barns in south-east En~land is described ~, in this work as a "box-frame". In the eastern part of our region it is the type of structure commonly found in varying degrees of purity. To the west, in Leicestershire, the earliest timber frames show "cruck" origins which spring from a different source from the box-frame.
