"I'm writing an article on negus strainers and how to make them. Negus is a mulled port drink invented by colonel Francis Negus in the early 18th century. His seat was in the village of Dallinghoo in Suffolk.

There seems to some some confusion about which building in Dallinghoo this was. It may have been Dallinghoo Hall, Dallinghoo Manor, or the Old Rectory.

Would you be able to confirm the name of the building in which he lived and in 1732 died, and identify the source for an illustration."
