Comment on the dating of the manor:

The left side of the manor was built in 1672 as an extension of the main building. All datings of the new part of the building may be considered as being absolutely reliable. Therefore the right part of the manor already existed when the left part was erected but was strongly altered in the course of that constructional phase. Fresh cut timbers which were used in the right half of the house (dating to 1671/72) give evidence for that. In case of the other timbers dating to the time around 1375 it cannot be decided whether they were part of an  old building phase or not. Maybe these timbers give evidence of the former, smaller manor there. Considering traces on timbers which were re-used the former building appears to be equipped with a wooden vault. Timbers dating to 1769 probably represent repairs. Those timbers dating to the time around 1501 cannot be explained from a constructional point of view yet. Maybe a detailed analysis of the whole construction and more dendrochronological work will bring light into darkness. The complicated constructional history of the building we have expected before has been confirmed by the different results of the dating process.
