Dates of existence



The court books record Richard Hoo as lord in 1621and 1625; Francis Neve in 1630 and 1642; Oliver [le] Neve in 1672. In 1679 John Norris held his first court as executor of the will of Oliver Neve, deceased. Revd Humphrey Prideaux, Dean of Norwich Cathedral, held his first court in 1704. Richard Warner occurs as lord in 1708 and again in 1750, John Conyers in 1752 and 1762. In 1770, John Lombe, later Sir John, became lord and the manor descended in the Evans-Lombe family.
Some parts of this manor belonged to Wendling Abbey before the Dissolution. Rougholme relates to parts of the estate of Rougholme chapel, which was in Gressenhall parish, and was dissolved at the Reformation: that part within Gressenhall became the separate manor of Rougholme.
Last transaction dated: 1875; lord of the manor: Revd Henry Lombe; Steward: Charles Hornor [TNA, HMC 5/6].
