The earliest reference to a moated manor house at Down Barns near Northolt in the London Borough of Ealing was in 1212, at which time it belonged to Roger de la Dune, the Constable of the Tower of London.  The property later passed through many hands, and ended up in 1388 being owned by Nicholas Brembre, sometime Mayor of London.  The house was demolished after Brembre’s execution for treason that year, and was never rebuilt.

The moated site, however, remains, as a Scheduled Ancient Monument, owned by All Souls College, Oxford.
