plan for south allington

South Allington House, Chivelstone. Home of Nicholas Pitts and Elizabeth Prettejohn Pitts, née Harris. There was a manor at South Allington at Domesday. The Pitts family seem to have acquired a previous modest country house there in the 1830s. This drawing by Lionel Ponsford of Totnes from about 1839 shows the proposed front elevation for South Allington House after redevelopment commissioned by Nicholas Pitts, and undertaken by Thomas Ponsford of Totnes
