Administrative history

Richard I granted this manor to the monastery of St Edmunds at Bury; it had previously formed part of the capital manor of Aylsham (late Aylsham Lancaster). William Bardolf and John Hastings had each held half of the manor before the entirety was granted to the Sacristan or Sexton of the monastery (hence one of the manor's appellations). According to Blomefield, 'in 1296 it was found, that all the tenants of this manor were obliged to grind at the abbot's water-mill; in 1285, the abbot of St Edmund had view of frankpledge, assize of bread and ale, free warren, or liberty of game, and a ducking-stool, in this manor'. The manor came to the king at Dissolution who then granted it to Edward Wood in 1545; Edward's son Robert was lord in 1547 and mayor of Norwich in 1578. It remained with the Wood family into the eighteenth century; Thomas Wood Esq. was also lord of Bolwick manor in Aylsham [Blomefield].\r\nKatherine Copeman, widow is named as lady in the Inclosure Act for Erpingham, Colby, Banningham and Ingworth of 1818 [NRO, MC 88/7/2], so the manor extended into one or more of these parishes.\r\nRobert Copeman, Esq., is given as lord of the manor in White's Trade Directory (1845) and Thomas Copeman, Esq., is lord in White's in 1883.
