Administrative history

A manor of the Bishop of Norwich, taken from the bishopric and vested in the King, 1535. It was owned by the Thorisby family in the seventeenth century and was sold by them to Sir Cyril Wyche in 1697. It remained in the Wyche family for three generations and was sold to Philip Case in 1792. On Case's death in 1792 it passed to his son-in-law Thomas Bagge, and remained in the Bagge family until the twentieth century.\r\nThe Inclosure Act of 1808 states that 'William Bagge is or claims to be Lord or Owner of the Manor of Gaywood' [NRO, DCN 53/4/2]. Richard Bagge, Esq., is given as lord of the manor in White's Trade Directory (1883).
