Editor's note: manorial documents from the fourteenth to the seventeenth exist and are held with those relating to Townsend estates, which may suggest that by the early modern period this manor was united with East Raynham.

Inquisitions post mortem provide information about the tenant-in-chief of the manor: Robert Scales died in possession 1403; heir his son Robert [IPM 1:18/724]. Joan, widow of Sir Roger Scales, died in possession, 1415; heir their son Robert [IPM 1:20/162]. \r\nFor the history of the manor to the early eighteenth century, see F.

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.
