"At the Restoration, the Great Hall being in a very ruinous condition, Juxon (1660-63) 'rebuilt it,' says Dr. Ducarel, 'in the ancient form; nor could all the persuasions of men versed in architecture, and of his friends, induce him to rebuild it in the modern way.' (History and Antiquities of Lambeth Palace, in Bibliotheca Topographica Britannica, 1785.)"
