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.
