Administrative history

Costessey and its berewicks or sub manors [Bawburgh, [Honingham] Thorpe, Barford, Honingham, Wramplingham, Brandon [Parva], Runhall, Carleton, Hingham, Marlingford, Tokethorpe] was given to Alan, Earl of Richmond, after the Norman Conquest.
Sir John de Clavering is named as lord in the Nomina Villarum of 1316.
William de Ufford, Earl of Suffolk, died in possession 1381-2; heirs William de Wylurghby, Robert Lord de Scales, Henry de Ferrariis of Groby; [IPM 15/599,607]. Isabel, widow of William Ufford, Earl of Suffolk, died in possession 1416; heir her nephew Richard, Earl of Richmond [IPM 20/593]. Costessey was a soke or head manor, with land in Costessey parish, and with submanors in many nearby parishes. According to an inquisition of c 1381 the manor was 'well built with houses': it included a watermill at Bawburgh. [IPM 15/599]. The manor was granted by Philip and Mary to Henry Jerningham in 1555. The grant [NRO, JER 244] lists the submanors as Earlham, East Tuddenham, Bawburgh, Barford, Honingham Thorpe, Morton, Wramplingham, Carleton Forehoe, Runhall, Brandon Parva, Yaxham, Easton, Weston Longville, Felthorpe, Taverham, Colton, Ringland, Bowthorpe, Marlingford, Hethersett, Melton and Salle. The subsequent manor court records never mention Salle, but do include three further submanors not named in the original grant: Welborne, Westfield, Honingham.
The manor descended through many generations of the Jernegan or Jerningham family, later elevated to the peerage as Stafford: Lord Stafford is given as lord of the manor in White's Trade Directory, 1883.
