Administrative history

At an inquisition taken in 1490, Richard Blomvyle was found to have been in possession of the manor, held of Lord Morley. Ralph was his son and heir [IPM 2:1/279].\r\nBy the nineteenth century the manor was owned by Canterbury Cathedral: Ecclesiastical Commissioners are given as lord of the manor in White's Trade Directory (1883).\r\nAccording to the Inland Revenue list of 1925, the Ecclesiastical Commissioners were lords and Smith Gore & Co the stewards. \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).\r\n
