FRETTENHAM



TAVERHAM. 25

FRETTENHAM MANOR. Roger, of Poitiers in
France, had the grant of this town, of which Edric,
a free-man was deprived ; valued at 4!. then, but at
the furvey at 81. was one leuca long, and half a one
bro^td.

This Roger was third fan of Roger de Montgo-
mery, a Norman, earl of Montgomery, who at-
tended the Conqueror into England, and com-
manded the center of the van of his army in the
battle of Haftings, and was created carl of Lau-
cafter.

He had, befides this town, the lordfhips of Ham-
ford, Spixworth, Croflwick, and Maidefton in this
hundred of Taverham ; Coltifhall in South Erping-
.ham ; Tunflead, Hoveton, and Weflwick in Tun Read ;
zmd Eaft Rifton in the hundred of Happing, in Nor-
folk : hm rebelling againfl Henry T. and taking part
with his brother Robert, duke of Normandy, he was
deprived of all his eftatcs and earldom in England.

Robert Bertram was afterwards lord of this town,
and a Norman, but taking pait with the French
king againft king John, the laid king in his 6th year,
granted it to Peter de Naiiord, who being accufcd of
making great vvafte therein, the king re-affumed it,
and gave it to Roger le Poure, at the requeft of
Robert Fitz-Roger, lord of Horsford, to be held at
the king's will ;- and on his death, Robert le Poure,
his fon and heir, poffeffed it, and had a grant of free-
warren in the 5ift of Henry III. but in the following
year conveyed it by fine to Thomas Bviidolph, with
the advow(on of the church, who granted to Robert
an annuity of twenty marks for life, with a claufe of
diflrefs in his manors of Spixworth and Weft Winch.

This Thomas, in the 15th of Edward I. claimed
free-warren, the aflife and vie\v of frank-pledge, and
in the i8th of that king was impleaded by John de
Redmere, Thomas having view of frank-pledge, and
John having lands in the town, and not appearing in
his leet or tiihing, he had diftrained John's oxen,
vvho pleaded that lie was a clerk, and a fcholar, and
that no clerks, or Jcholars, ought to be put into the
tithing againft their confent in any leet, and produced
the bifliop of Norwich, and chancellor of the uni-
verfity's letter to teflify the fame ; fo that judgment
was given againft the lord of the leet, and that a
clerk need not appear at the leet without his pre fence
tvas particularly neceffary, and the oxen were reltored
tojohn.

In the 6th of Edward II. a fine was levied between
John Bardolf, querent, and Joan, daughter of Tho-
mas Bardolf of Spixworth, deforciant, of this lord-
fhip and advowfon, which Cecilia, 'widow of the
faid Thomas, held for life, of the honour of Lan-
cafter, by one fee, and IDS. per ann. and in the igth
6f Edward III. it was fettled on John Bardolf, and
the heirs of Thomas Bardolf held it in the 4th of
Henry IV. who thofe heirs were is not mentioned;
but in the reign of Edward IV. John Skerning, &c.
conveyed it with lands in Horflead, Cioftwick, Be-
laugh, :c. tojohn Winter, efq.

By the will of John Briggs, efq. dated Salle, May
sv, 1494, it appears that he died feifed of it, and
devifed it to his wife Margaret, for life, after to fir
Henry Heydon, on his payment of 400 marks to his
executors ; and in the 15th of Henry VII. Edmund
Pafton and Margaret, late wife of Thomas Briggs,

Frettenham hill.

ruite of Frettenham, or Hainloid; Roger of Poic-
tiers, earl of Lancafter, was lord of it, and Albert
was lord before the conquefl ; then valued at 305.
but at the furvey at nothing, probably accounted for

long, and three broad. .

Giles Saintlow's, of London, attainted, and other

William, fon of Rofceline, was lord in the loth
of Richard I. and about this time William Blund
impleaded the aforefaid William for this manor, fet-
ting forth that it had been granted to him and Alice
his wife by his anceftor Blund, in dower, for the
moiety of the village of Walfham, and to return to
him on the death of Alice.

" Rofceline pleaded that the exchange vras good,
and that Alice had refigned her dower at Walfharn
for this, had given alfo twenty marks, and a war
horje, and that Henry II. had confirmed this ex-
change.



T A V E R H A M. 31-

In the gth of king John, William Blund convey
ed it by fine to William, grand fon of Rofceline, to
hold it of Blund by one fee.

John, fon of William Rofceline, held it by one

three round buckles, or. Argentine Faftolf. Dr.
Mansfield and his wife were here buried.

In the church-yard was the chapel of the blelfed
Virgin in 1463.

HELLESDON, or HAYLESDON, or HELESDEN,
wrote in Doomfday-book Hailefduna. Parkin fays
it takes its name from its fcite on a hill by a water
or river; but we are rather inclined to think its real
name has been Hillfdown. or HillVtown.

On the deprivation of Stigand, archbifhop of Can-
terbury., who held it as a lay-fee, the Conqueror
granted it to Godwin Haldene, valued at 4!. iss, Sd.

and



T A V E R H A M. 33

and there was a church but not endowed with any
land. It was ope leuca and an half, and twenty
perches long, and one leuca and three furlongs
broad.

This Godwin, Haldene feems to be of Danifli ex-
traclion, and one thing is remarkable of him, that
he held under earl Guert, brother of king Harold,
the lordfhip of Gnatingdon in Srrmhdon hundred,
in king Edward's time, and at the Conqueft, when
he was alfo rewarded wilh this lordfhip, thofe of
Oxnead ,'h South Erpingham, and Barnham Broom
in Forehoe hundred ; a proof that he was a rebel
againft king Harold, and affilted the Conqueror.

Soon after the Conqueft it was divided into two
lordfhips, one held by the family of de Barnham,
the other by that of Hauteyn, of the honour of Clare,
coming to thofe earls from the GifFards, earls of
Bucks.

BARNHAM'S MANOR. William de Barnham was
lord of this town, Oxnead, Barnham, &c. in the
reign of Richard I. held of the honour of Clare, in
which family it continued fome time.

In the 36th of Edward III, fir Giles de Barnham,

faid king, and Walter de Berney prefcnted to this

in right of Joan his wife.

John de Haylefdon, citizen of Norwich, was bu-
ried in this church in 1384, by his father and mo-
ther.

John Gournay, and Alice his wife, were in poflef-
fion of it in the i.gth of Richard II. when they
paffed it, with the manor of Dray ton, and the ad-
vowfon of the two chauntries in this town, to John
Winter, 8cc. and in the 4th of the faid Richard II.
John Hokere conveyed this lordfhip to John Church-
man and Bartholomew Marfh, citizens of London,
feoffees of John de Haylefdon.

Richard Selling and Alice conveyed it, in the
i ith of Henry VI. to fir John Faflolf and John Paf-
ton, efq. enjoyed it, and John de la Pole, duke of
Suffolk; from which family it came to the .crown,
on the execution of Edmund, earl of Suffolk.

Henry VIII. granted it to Charles Brandon, duke
of Suffolk, arid on his death, efcheating to the
crown, it was" given, April 11, in the 4th of Ed-
ward VI. to the bifhop of Norwich and his fucccf-
fors, with Drayton ; and the bifhop is lord at this
time.

HAUTEYN'S MANOR. Theobald de Hauteyn had
a lordfhip here in the reign of Henry II. by the
marriage of Agnes, daughter of Albert de Grefley,
who was alfo lord of Oxnead.

On



T A V E R H A M. 35

On the death of Theobald, flie married de

Amaundevile, and in iiSs;, flie held this manor in
dower, having three fons by Theobald,

Walter de Hauteyn, of Hellefden, was alfo liv-
ing in the 8th of Henry II. and had an intereft here,
holding two fees of the honour of Clare.

Hamond dc Hauteyn fucceeded his father John,
and was cuftos of the county of Norfolk, and ac-
counted for the profits thereof, in the 44th of Hen-
ry III. and in his 53d year had the king's writ, da-
ted December 3, that whereas he had forfeited his
lands, which were given to Patrick de Chaworth, for
fiding with the barons, he was empowered to fum-
mon Patrick before the fherifF, to (hew caufe why
they fliould not be reftored to him.

Sir Bartholomew de Hauteyn had alfo an intereft
here about the fame time, and the king had granted
his lands on the fame account to Ernifius de Stotevile.

Sir Hamond de Hauteyn and Robert de Ludham
were appointed juftices to look after the Jews af-
fairs, and there was a mandate to the Barons of the
Exchequer, to deliver to them the keys of the cheft
of the Jews, with the rolls, See. belonging to that
office.

In the 3d of that king, he claimed the afTife, free-
warren, a gallows, 8cc. in the nth of the faid
king, he was furnmoned to meet the king in parlia-
ment at Salop, and in the 15th was fufpended from,
his office, as judge of the Jews, for certain mif-
demeanors.

William -his foa and heir fucceeded, and was
lord in 1301, and dying in the year 1326, fir John
Hauteyn was his (on and heir; but it does not ap-
pear that he inherited this lordfhip: his father is
laid to have incurred the difpleafure of Edward I.
and to have paid a fine of 569!. 6s. Sd. for certain
Iran fgre (lions, in not attending him in fome expedi-
tion, as is faid; and in the i gth of Edward II. not
long before his death, had conveyed by fine this
lordfliip to Walter de Barnham and Maud his wife,
\vidow of his father Hamond, and fo was united
foon after to the manor of Barnham.

This fir John was probably the fame perfon who
\vas receiver of the king's cuftoms of wool, and ci-
tizen of London, in the i6th of the faid king. Sir
John fealed with argent, a bend fable, and fome
of the Hauteyns fealed with bendy of 8, ardent and
fcble.

From the Barnhams it came to Walter de Ber-
ney, Richard de Haylefdon, fo to Gournay, Faflolf,
&c. and fo to the fee of Norwich, as mentioned in
Barnham manor.

Here was alfo a lordOiip called Fairchiid's, which
arofe, we imagine, from the grant of fir Robert de
Hauteyn of loos, per ann. in lands, Sec. to Eve his
daughter, on her marriage with Ralph de Tyville
about the 2 8th of Henry III.

In the reign of Henry VI. fir John Faftolf was
lord and patron, and fir John Pafton died poffefled
of it in the 6th of Edward IV. as fir John Wihfhire
did in the reign of Henry VI. before it came to

eminent loyalty in Kctt's rebellion, in the reign of
