A writ of 1437 allowed William Marryot to hold the manor [NRO, WKC 1/42], and following his death in 1446 a suit regarding ownership of the manor was raised between Sir William Paston and Edmund Winter. In 1476 Roger Townsend leased the manor to Simon Gunnore for seven years; it was leased by Sir William Paston to Thomas Pigeon in 1532 for 40 years and then, in 1577 conveyed to feoffees, and then from them to Thomas Gibson in 1600 [deeds NRO, WKC 1/43]. \r\nThe manor was called Pastons in the sixteenth century. William Paston held his first court with Brigitte his wife in 1540. Robert Felding and William Payne held their first court in 1616; Samuel Town in 1619. John Windham, Esq., occurs as lord in 1658 and from then on the manor remained in the family, with East Beckham Isaack's manor.\r\n
