Suspicious fire at Corringales Farm in 1804.

My 4th great grand uncle James Bingham (1775 - 1831) owned Corringales Farm in 1804 when a fire broke out believed to be the result of arson.  When James died in 1831 (the article indicates he had a wife and 2 children but I found no evidence of that.  Did they die in the fire one wonders?), he Willed some of the property to his nephew George Gentry (his sister Martha Bingham's son), and some of the property to my 4th great grandfather John Bingham (1782-1838), his brother.

This excerpt was originally published in the Ipswich Journal in 1804,  and was re-published in the Windows on the Past section in the Hatfield Heath Magazine May 2011 edition:

WINDOWS ON THE PAST 
IPSWICH JOURNAL 1st December1804
Fire at Skringils (Corringales)
Friday se'nnight a fire broke out upon a farm called Skringels, the property of Mr. Bingham of Hatfield Broad Oak, Essex. There were two fires the same evening upon this unfortunate persons premises. The first fire began at a barn about a 1⁄4 mile from the dwelling house which was immediately so involved in flames that no prospect appeared to the alarmed neighbourhood of saving the property. The barn was soon levelled with the earth, and with its contents became one heap of rubbish. But what horror will it excite in our readers, and with what indignation will they receive the information when they are told that about 8 o'clock the same evening, 2 barns nearly adjoining the dwelling house where the son and daughter of Mr Bingham resided, were discovered to be so enveloped with flames as to be out of the reach of humans intervention to extinguish them, the fire at one and the same time burst out at different places. Very strong reasons therefore exist to ground suspicion that the whole of this melancholy and lamentable conflagration was the work of some diabolical incendiary whose wicked inventions have but too well succeeded in the destruction of the whole of Mr Bingham's property amounting to near £1000.

A Brief History of Corringales Farm, between Hatfield Heath and Hatfield Broad Oak

My 6th great grandfather James Bingham (1711- 1795) Willed his grandson James Bingham (1775 - 1831) "the farms at Little Hallingbury & held of the Manor of Monkbury". I think this was called Ongar Farms - 62acres.  I think that Ongar Farm was then lumped together in 1795 with Corringales (pronounced Skringels?) Farm, Parish of Little Hallinbury 200acres.  

Below is an historical account of Corringales Farm, written Liz Wright, in the Hatfield Heath Village Magazine, January 2007 edition 


BRIEF HISTORY OF SOME HATFIELD HEATH FARMS CORRINGALES


"The first known mention of Corringales is in a charter of 1217 which records that Corringhall was granted by Henry II to Hugo de Neville of Great Hallingbury. In 1600, Corringales, now in the ownership of the Barringtons, was let to George Dorrington. Some of the fields are named including; Howstreet field and mead, Thornescroft, Betsmore mead, and a wood called West
Hays.

In 1654 there was need of repairs and renovation to the farm and Edward Marrable was paid for “removing the carte House and Driveinge & Grancellinge of it & removing of the pales from the dwelling house between ye Bearne & the hous & two Hen housen” and “Two hogscoates & for a Sestarne House” [pales = fencing; grancel = groundsill or timber at the base of the walls; hogscoate = pig sty; sestarne = cistern.] by 1716 George Dorrington seems to hold the freehold of Corringales. The family was also farming Ongars, and Waters farms.


From 1766 the farm, still a Barrington property, was tenanted by Peter Pain and, until the 1790s, was combined with Ongars. In 1795 James Bingham took over the farm until his death in around 1834 when he was followed by George Gentry. He was soon followed by Edmund Mansfield who seems to have bought the farm when it was sold in 1841.

The sale catalogue described it as:
“A Farm-House containing a keeping room, Pantry, two Butteries, Dairy, Seven Bedrooms, and three attics Yard and pump of water therein together with the following agricultural Buildings viz. Granary, Woodhouse, and Brewhouse, Barley and Wheat barns, new stable for six horses, Chaff and Harness Houses, new Cow-house for six cows, waggon-lodge, Piggeries and poultry houses and 171a 3r 0p of Productive Arable & Pasture land lying within a ring fence.....The farm is in the occupation of Mr James Mansfield a respectable tenant at a rent of £190 per annum.”


After his death his widow, Elizabeth seems to have sold the farm to Henry Eade whose wife, Martha, continued to farm there after his death in 1857. She sold Corringales to the Millbank brothers in 1869 and the farm remained in the family until 1926 when it was bought by the Hallingbury Hall estate. After the Second World War it ceased to be a farm in its own right and became the property of the Cmdr. and Mrs Parkinson. Since that time it has been a private home."
