* The Grange was evidently built by Sir Thomas (on quitting the mansion at Killerton, which his father, the sergeant, had erected) upon the site of an ancient dwelling of the Abbots of the adjacent abbey of Donkeswell, to which monastery extensive lands in Broadhembury belonged, and a large portion of which had been purchased by sergeant Drewe from Henry, Earl of Southampton, grandson of Thomas Wriothesley, Earl of Southampton, grantee at the dissolution. Some portions of the ancient house of the Abbot appear to remain. The dwelling built by Sir Thomas was a handsome mansion, in the form as it seems of an I in compliment to JAMFs I. it has, however, undergone considerable alterations. One remarkable chamber, wainscoted with carved oak of very rich and elaborate design, and skilful workmanship, is still in perfect preservation; and presents a specimen, perhaps, unequalled, of the richly decorated withdrawing room of the time of JAMEs I. The royal arms and initials of JAMEs decorate the chimney piece; and amongst the various ornaments are to be observed the bearings of the builder, Sir Thomas Drewe, and of the family of his wife, the Moores of Hampshire.
