The Abbot of [Bury] St Edmund is named as lord in the Nomina Villarum of 1316 [NRO, NNAS S2/26/1].
Reverend John Holmes is given as lord of the manor in White's Trade Directory (1845). George Holmes, Esq., JP, is given as lord of the manor in White's Trade Directory (1883). However, the manor appears in a fine and fee book of those manors held by Robert Fellowes in the late nineteenth century [NRO, MC 1832/15-16], and a bundle of papers related to extinguishment of manorial incidents in his manors in the early twentieth century [NRO, MC 1832/17].
