Hemingsby (Salisbury)

Hemingsby is a historic house in Salisbury.

It is situated in the Close.

Hemingsby is a 14th century canonical residence, with spacious 18th century rooms and a mediaeval Great Hall. There is 15th century linenfold panelling and a large garden.

The house was the home of Canon William Fideon, a Greek scholar. He escaped from Constantinople in 1453 when it fell. It was also the home of Canon Edward Powell. He was the advocate of Catherine of Aragon, but was later hanged, having denied the Act of Supremacy.
