Administrative history

According to Bryant, West Hall manor was held by the Denver family in the thirteenth century and then the Spaldings in the first half of the fourteenth century before passing through several hands and coming to the Hobarts in the early seventeenth century. After this it was conveyed to Edward Barber circa 1659 and thereafter united with East Hall. The two manors remained with the Barbers until 1730 when they were conveyed to a Mr Towerson who then conveyed them to Roger Pratt, in whose family they remained.\r\nEdward Roger Pratt, Esq., is given as lord of the manors of East and West Hall in White's Trade Directory (1845). E.R.M. Pratt, Esq., JP, is given as lord of the manor in White's Trade Directory (1883).\r\nLast transaction dated: 1886; lord of the manor: Edward Roger Murray Pratt; Steward: J.J. Nunn [TNA, HMC 5/6].
