Administrative history

Sir Richard Poynings died in possession of a quarter of the manor, 1387-8; heir his son Robert; the manor extended into Hillington [IPM 1:16/613]. Isobel, widow of Sir Richard Poynings died holding a third part of a quarter of the manor in dower, of the Earl of Arundel 1403 [IPM 1:18/987].\r\nManor of Flitcham was owned by Flitcham priory, a cell of Walsingham. Its lands passed to the Crown at the Dissolution and were granted to Richard Williams otherwise Cromwell. By 1604 all the small manors in Flitcham [except Snorings] were in the hands of the Coke family, and all are treated as part of the single manor of Flitcham. The Earl of Leicester is given as lord of the manor in White's Trade Directory (1845).
