Administrative history

The manor was held by the Bardolfs of the Bishop of Norwich in the fourteenth century; Sir John Bardolf conveyed it in 1357 to Thomas Chappe and Margaret his wife. Thomas Seckford held it in 1428, of Thomas Beaufort, Duke of Exeter. By the early sixteenth century the manor was held by the Aslacks. Blomefield states that Sir Thomas L'Estrange died seized of the manor in 1546 and it remained in that family. However, court rolls [NRO, LEST/FB 35] give the lord as Aslack Lany, Esq. in the late sixteenth and early seventeenth century and William Taylor, gent., from 1618 to 1633. The manor is also referred to as Bardolfs nuper Aslacks during this time. After this the lord is given as William Barrett from circa 1676 to 1683, Clementine Barret from 1696 to 1708 and Mary his widow from 1709 to 1714. The manor then passed to Richard Harwick, Esq, in 1724, Theodore Hoste, Esq., in 1734 and Dixon Hoste, Esq., in 1775, before passing to Henry Styleman circa 1783. Thereafter the manor remained with the Lestrange family into the twentieth century [NRO, LEST 5/1/1994].\r\nHenry L'Estrange Styleman is named a slord of the manor of Bardolphs in Ringstead and Holme in the Holme Inclosure Act of 1820 [C/Sca 2/162]
