Administrative history

Fifteenth century court rolls exist for a manor of this name, but are not held at NRO. The Scoggins family held the manor of Haviles (see Haviles manor, East Raynham, for further information) in the fourteenth century, and Blomefield notes that Sir Roger Scogan's daughter, Maud, married Sir Walter Townsend in the fifteenth century. Scoggans may therefore be an alternative name for Haviles manor, or the manor may have some association with the Townsend family.
