According to Blomefield this was part of the manor of Bressingham until about 1240. It was in the hands of the Boyland family in the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries. The Earl of Arundel bought it in the late sixteenth century, and it thus passed into the hands of the Duke of Norfolk. The manor was always called Boyland or Boyland's.\r\nThe Duke of Norfolk is given as lord of the manor in White's Trade Directory (1883).\r\nLast transaction dated: 1867; lord of the manor: Duke of Norfolk; Steward: Francis Thomas Cudden [TNA, HMC 5/6].
