Dates of existence



According to Blomefield, the manor belonged to St. Peirs de Bassingham and then came to the De Mauteby family through marriage in the thirteenth century. It remained in this family, and was sometimes referred to as Salle Mauteby, until it passed by marriage to the Pastons in the reign of Henry VI. It stayed with the Pastons until 1642 when Sir William Paston sold it to Erasmus Earl, Esq., with the manor of Briston. Augustine Earl, Esq., died lord in 1762 and the manor passed by the marriage of his daughter to William Wigget Bulwer, Esq., of Wood Dalling. W.E.L. Bulwer is given as lord in White's directory (1845) and William Earle Gascoyne Lytton-Bulwer in Kelly's (1900). \r\nColonel William Earle Gascoyne Lytton Bulwer is given as lord of the manor in White's Trade Directory, 1883.
