Histoire administrative

Denise de Vere was lady of the manor of Bergh with Apton in 1304; her heir, the Earl of Pembroke, died in 1313. The Earl of Pembroke is named as lord in the Nomina Villarum of 1316 [NRO, NNAS S2/26/1]; he died in possession in 1323-5, his heir being John, Lord Hastings [IPM 1:6/518]. The manor descended though successive Earls of Pembroke. Mary, Countess of Pembroke died in possession of rights of dower (she was widow of the earl who had died in 1313), 1377 [IPM 1:14/339]. After the death of John, Earl of Pembroke (a minor) in 1387, the manor passed to a distant relative, Sir William Beauchamp, who was later Lord Bergavenny. The manor descended through this family, often later spelled Abergavenny. \r\nThe Earl of Abergavenny is given as lord of the manor in the Enclosure Act of 1801 [NRO, C/Sca 2/30] and in White's Trade Directory (1845). When the manor was sold in 1869 by William, the 5th Earl, it was purchased by Revd Richard Cooke Denny (d. 1890). Denny's sons, Richard Harrison Denny (d. 1944) and Thomas Henry Denny-Cooke (d. 1952) inherited as joint lords of the manor of Bergh Apton, whilst Thomas Denny-Cooke inherited the manor of Washingford in Bergh Apton. \r\nFor further history of the manor to the early eighteenth century, see F. Blomefield, 'An Essay towards a Topographical History of the County of Norfolk' (11 vols, London, 1805-10). For a more detailed account of the descent of the manor, see G. Kelly, 'The Book of Bergh Apton' (Tiverton, Devon, 2005). Both these books are available on the searchroom shelves.
