Uphall manor was the capital manor in Ashill, but became associated with the smaller manors in Ashill, Collards, Games and Monacks, alias Monocks, when they all were granted by the Crown to Sir Henry Bedingfield circa 1555. The united manors were sold by the Bedingfields to John Eyre of Holme Hale, and, circa 1720, they passed to Sir Francis Andrew. Later lords included Philip Southcote (1747), Bridget Southcote (1759), Robert, Lord Petre (1783), who was lord at the time of the Inclosure Award of 1786 [NRO, C/Sce 1/3], William, Lord Petre (1810), Hon.
