Portswood Manor House was, in the 17th century, part of the complex of St. Denys Priory buildings, apparently situated at the south-east corner of the priory site, approximating to modern Cobden Bridge western approach. The 1658 Map of the Priory of St Deny's and Manor of Portswood (image below) depicts the farmhouse in this position.
