Gatehouse doors

An engraving by the Manor Gatehouse door (inside the McCarthy flat) says “1863 March 3 This door hung by J Coy”. James Coy, Joiner, (1830-1907) is listed as living in Gregory’s Alms Houses in the 1861 census, with wife Mary Ann (step sister of Elizabeth Sandilands, house keeper for Gregory Gregory at the Manor) and son William. James spent his life at Harlaxton and is buried, with Mary Ann, at Harlaxton Church.
