Some of the earliest written records show an entry in the Norman Domesday Book of 1086. "Williams holds Timsbury from the Bishop of Coutance. Ape held it before 1066.

Built towards the end of the 15th century by Richard Samborne. His successor Barnaby Samborne was knighted for his services to Queen Elizabeth I. The building was demolished in 1961, and St. Marys Green and Somerset Folly estates now occupy the original site. One unusual feature of the estate was the presence of a ha-ha . This was constructed to allow the Samborne family privacy from the local inhabitants as they passed the house.
