Chestnut farm in Sambourne

Can you help with Geoff’s query?
 
Hello – I have recently bought Chestnut farm in Sambourne.  It is a very old tudor building (1551) and I understand that it used to be Quinney’s dairy farm and was also called oak farm in the far distant past.
 
Have any of your members every researched this building and is there anything in your archive which I could access?
 
Many thanks   Geoff Shaw 
 
 
Since posting this query I came across this photograph with the caption below:
