Dates of existence



The manor was granted to Hugh de Boves by King John, as part of the crown manor of Aylsham Lancaster. The manor passed to the Bolewic family in the first half of the thirteenth century, before passing to the Whitwell family in the mid-thirteenth century. By the late fourteenth century it was held by Sir Robert Salle. The manor then was sold a number of times, being held by Agnes Milton, the Aleyn family and 'various families' before coming to the Wood family in the late sixteenth century [Blomefield, Vol 6, pp. 268-285]. John Warnes, Esq., is given as lord of the manor in White's Trade Directory (1845); Mrs Calvert is lady of the manor in White's Trade Directory (1883).
