Special Request for volunteer in Essex

Greetings, In addition to several requests for grave stone photos in Essex and Suffolk I am submitting, I do have a special request. At one time, the Brewster family had built Wrentham Hall in Wrentham, Suffolk and commissioned a stained-glass or painted window to be built within the hall that displayed many generations of Brewster marriages. The window had, reportedly, 12 Coats of Arms upon it, information I gathered from an ancestor's journal from the 1800s. Wrentham Hall was demolished at some point in the 1800s, and the family supposedly moved the window to Greenstead Hall (formerly Halstead Lodge) in Halstead, Essex. From what information I can glean, it seems that this hall is located on Church Road, appx. 0.7 km south from Colchester Road (A1124). I was hoping to find a volunteer who would be so gracious as to find the hall and see if the window still exists. I would love to have a photograph of it, and any other information related to it. Should the volunteer need additional assistance locating the hall, I do have several old photographs of the residence. Feel free to email me at any time at awbrewster@cox.net. Thank you very much!
