Bromehill [Augustinian] Priory Estates title deeds

Medieval title deeds relating to estates in both Norfolk and Suffolk given or sold to the Priory in the thirteenth century, the majority of which, however, relate to priory lands in Ickworth, Suffolk In addition, there is one deed relating to land in Bourn, Cambridgeshire which was granted to the Augustinian priory of Barnwell in Chesterton, Cambridge, and also two deeds relating to an estate in Diseworth, north Leicestershire. The latter's connection with Bromhill Priory is uncertain, but the Bromhill, Bourn and Diseworth estates were all granted to Christ's College, Cambridge at various dates after the suppression of the monasteries in the first half of the sixthteenth century.
Most of the deeds have been identified, in red ink on the dorse, by the name of their parish or vil and also, where necessary, by a number (e.g. Ickewrth II). Presumably, these references relate to a register or cartulary created by the priory. Many of them are endorsed with thirteenth, or early fourteenth, century summary descriptions of the grantor and the estate, and are also endorsed with a later (probably eighteenth century) ?antiquary's summary of their contents. In the case of the Diseworth deeds, the later descriptions misidentify Diseworth as Ickworth.

Weeting Hocday Manor

Originally termed, Weeting Manor, the later name arose from the custom of the manor's annual view of frank pledge and leet court meeting on Hock Monday [the Monday before the second Tuesday after Easter] in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. Apart from this meeting, the court occasionally met, usually in the autumn, for a court baron if there was enough business to transact.
