Parish Histories:

Brympton d'Evercy Brympton d'Evercy is a manor house near Yeovil in the county of Somerset, England. It has been described as the most beautiful house in England,[1] in a country of architecturally pleasing country houses; whatever the truth of that statement, in 1927 the British magazine Country Life published a set of three articles on the house, in which Christopher Hussey, near the start of his 50-year career as a notable architectural authority and documentor of British country houses, described Brympton d'Evercy as "The most incomparable house in Britain, the one which created the greatest impression and summarises so exquisitely English country life qualities".[2] Hussey's articles remain the only detailed account of the mansion. During its long history Brympton d'Evercy has belonged to just four families, the d'Evercys, the Sydenhams, the Fanes, and the most recent owner who purchased the property in 1992.
