had an imereft herein in the 35th of Edward III.
they gave the patronage of this church to the priory
of Norwich.

In the 14th of Richard II. Roger Griffin, of
Sprowfton, furrendered by fine this lordfihip, late fir
Hugh Sprowfton's, to John Aflake of Broouaholm.

Walter Aflake, efq. of Sprowfton, had a proicc-
lion in the loth of Henry VI. being in the retinue of
John, duke of Bedford, regent in France.

After this it was in the Calthorpes, and fir Henry
Parker and the lady Elizabeth, his wife, daughter
and heir of fir Philip Calthorpe, who died in the
year 1535, inherited this manor of Allake's.

Sir Philip Parker had livery of it about the soth
of Elizabeth, with the advowfon of the church, and
fold it to fir Miles Corbet, who was lord in the 34th
of Elizabeth, and fo it was united to the other manor
before mentioned.

There was a fmall fee in this village, and that of
Beeiton, at the furvcy, held by Robert Malet, lord
of Horsford, valued at. 6s. the king and the earl had

This always went along wit'i the manor of llors-

The church is dedicated 10 St. Margaret, and xvas
a reclory, valued at fixteen marks ; the prior of Nor-
wich had a portion of tithe valued at one mark, and
after it was appropriated to the faid priory, and is
now in the dean and chapter of Norwich, and fcrvcd
by a flipendiary curate, at their nomination.

In 1361 William de Wyckyngham.and Robert
de Yelverton, probably as trufteet>, granted the ad-
vowfon to the priory of Norwich, and Thomas Percy,
the bifliop, appropriated it November 12, in the
faid year.

The king granted his licence before on May 8, for
which the prior and convent had paid forty marks,
and it was to find two monks of that convent (capcl-
lanes) to ftudy in any univerfity, to perform divine
fervice daily for ever, for the 'fouls of Hugh de
Sprowflon, 8cc. and for the fouls of all the iaithful.

In the chancel of the church is a mural monu-
ment of alabafter, with the portraitures of fir Miles
Corbet, his two wives,, and children on their knees

The village of Sprowfton lies on the great road
leading from Norwich, two miles, to Wroxham bridge
five miles. A fair is annually held in this parilh,
called Magdalen fair, Auguft sd.

Sprowfton-hall is the feat of fir Lambert Black-
well, ban. who has improved the park and pleafure
grounds with much taftc and judgment.

STANNINGHALL, wrote in Doomfday-book
Staningepalla. At the furvcy'the Conqueror held
this lordihip, and William de Noiers was his ftew-
ard, or bailiff, of which a free-man of archbifliop
Stigand was deprived; it belonged to Horftcad ma-
nor, and was valued in Milehara and Horftcad; was-
one leuca long and one broad.

Soon after the furvey this lordfhip was granted
(probably by William II. or Henry i.) to the abbey
of the Holy Trinity of Caen, for nuns, founded by
queen Maud, wife to the Conqueror. In the year
1249 it was in the faid abbey.

In the 5sd of Henry III. Lucia, lady abbefs,

granted by fine to the prior of tieefton Regis, the

advowfon of this church, though no mention is

made of this abbefs, or this lordfliip in Neuflra Pia.

In the 3d of Edward III. the abbefs was found tOL
have free-vvarreu, &:c, here, and in 1428 their tem-
poralities were valued at 575. i id. ob. per ann.

At what time the abbey was deprived of it does not
appear, probably it was at the time when the other
alien priories, &c. loft their tenures in the reign of
Henry VI.

In the year 1534 Thomas Storme, of Stanning-
hall, wills to be buried in the church of Frettenham,
and gives to Alice his wife this lordftiip, with the
advowfon of the church for life, and after her death
to be fold ; and in the 31 ft of Henry VIII. a fine was
levied, wherein John Croile and Alice his wife (fate
wife of Storme) convey it to Robert Nycholfon, with
mefTuages and lands in this town, Horilead, Fretten-
hara, &:c. After this it was in the family of Walde-
grave, and Charles Waldegrave, efq. was lord in the
reign of James I. As a full account of this family
may be found in the peerage of England, we {hail
begin with the grandfather of this gentleman, and
make fome few obfervations relating to it, that we
have met with in ancient records.

John Waldegrave, efq. was fon and heir of Ed\v.
Waldegrave, elq. of the Friars in Sudbury, by Mabel
his wife, daughter and heir of John Cheney, efq. of
Pinto in Devonshire ; John was buried in the church
of All-hallows, at Sudbury in Suffolk, dying Oct. 6,
1545, and on his grave-ftone were the arms of
Waldegrave, and thole of Rochefler.

Sir Edward Waldegrave, his fon, was of Boi ley in
Efiex, privy councellor to queen Mary, chancellor of
the dutchy of Lancafter, and matter of the great

wardrobe :

Charles Waldegrave, of Stanningliall, was his fon
and heir.

Sir Edward Waldrgrave, created baronet Aug. I,
i<)4i, of Hever caflle in Kent.

Sir H'-nry Waldcgravc, his fon, is faia to have
fold Scanninghali ; others lay that Richard VValde-
grave, his fon by his feccmd wife fold it ; from this
fir Henry is defcendcd the right honourable carl
Waldegrave, now living.

This family is by hifldrians rtffened to have been
originally of the county of Norfolk, and to have af-
lumed their name from a town called Waldegrave, in
the faid county, bat this is a great millake, there
being no town of that name therein.

It appears much more, probable that they de-
fcendcd from the Waldegraves of Waldegrave in
Northamptonthite.

A branch moft likely of this familv removed into
Sutfoik.

The Waldegraves, as we have above obfervcd,
fold this lordfhip ; and fir Charles Harbord, km. was
lord in the reign of Charles II.

In i 7 i S the church of Stanninghall was confoU-
dated with Frettenham ; and in 1 764 the Rev. Tho-
mas Carthew was prefented to the united livings by
the late fir William Harbord, bart. of Gunton.

The church was dilapidated in the reign of queen
Elizabeth; it was landing in 1505.

TAVERHAM, wrote Taurefham in Doomfday-
book. Ralph de Bcaufoe had the grant of a lordfbip
in this town, held by Olf, in the reign of the Con-
feffor; valued at 205. then, at the furvey at 305.
with the fourth part of a church endov\ 7 cd with fifteeii
acres, valued at i6d.

This lordihip was poffeffed by the family of de
Drayton, lords of Drayton, in this hundred, after by
that of de Bellemonte, who conveyed it to Walter
Langton, bifhopof Litchfield, Sec. from the Pcve-
rells, his heirs, it came to the de la Poles, &c.

In the 3d of Henry IV. John Gournay held two
fees here and in Drayton, fometime John Spring's, of
the lord Morley, as part of the barony of Rye, and
came with Drayton manor, on the death of Charles
Brandon, duke of Suffolk, by a grant of Edw. IV.
to the fee of Norwich, and fo continues; the pre-
fentation to a portion of this church always went
with this lordfhip.

William, earl Warren, had a lordflrip, of which
Toca, a free-man, was deprived \ valued then at
305. at the. furvey at 403. this belonged to the fee
of Fretheric : it was one leuca and an half long, and
one leuca broad, and paid i6d. farthing to the king's

TAVERHAM. Si

A family who affumed their name from this town,
Ivas early enfcoffcd thereof: Nicholas de Taverham
was lord in the reign of king John.

Simon de Taverham had a charter for free- warren
in the 2otli of Edward I.

Simon Doo, parfon of Rackheath All Saints, re^
leafed to William Gerberge all his right in the manor
and advowfon of the church of Taverham ; and
William, fon of fir Thomas Gerberge, confirmed in
the 5th of Edward II. to Baldric, Ion of Simon de
Taverham, the faid manor and advowfon 'for lool.
fterling, with all the rents, fervices, Sec. and further
grants that all the lands and tenements which Joan,
late wife of Peter de Taverham, and Royfia, late
wife of Simon de Taverham, held in dowet of the
faid manor to the laid Baldric.

Bartholomew de Tunflead granted to Baldric in
the 21 ft of Edward III. all his lands, tenements,
rents and fervices in this town, Attlebridge, Felthorpe,
Weflon and Marham.

In the family of de Taverham this lordfhip con-
tinued.

In the 3d of Henry IV. John de Taverham, a mi-
nor, held half a fee of the dutchy of Lancafter; and
in 1404 William Taverham, efq. prefented to the
church.

Afterwards it was in fir John Faftolf, of Caflor,
and fo came to the de la Poles, and to the fee o

Norwich.

G * William



Ss H U N D R E D O F

William, bifhop of Thetford, held in his own
fjght, as a lay fee, a manor of which a free-woman
was deprived ; then valued at 1 25. but at the lurvey
at ?os.

He was a great benefactor to his fee, and gave to
it many loidfhips, this moft likely among them,
f.ho' we do not find this particularly named.

In the 2oth of Henry III. Adam deTunftall held
a quarter of a fee in this town of Robert de Caw-
flon, and he of the bifhop of Norwich in capite ;
and in the eoth of Edward III. the heirs of Adam
Tunftall.

In the 3d of Henry IV. Ifabel Moute held it as
part of the barony of the fee of Norwich.

The prior and convent of the Holy Trinity of
Norwich, founded by biQiop Herbert, had a confi-
derable lordfhip here, the church of St. Michael in
Norwich, near the cathedral, on what is now called
the Tomb-land, had (as the fiuvey informs us) in
iang Edward the ConfciTur's time, a carucate of land,
and $tigand, the bifhop of the diocefe, held it in
.right of that church. On the deprivation of Stigand,
it was granted to William de Beaufoe, and he held it
as a lay fee when the lurvey -was made; but as this
had been given to the church of St. Michael, by the
earls of the Eafl Angles, it was foon alter the furvey
re-afTumed, and being in the crown, was at the re-
qucft of Roger Bigot, a great Norman baron, (who
po{TefTed great part of the lands of the late earls of
JVjtorfoJk) granted by William II. to the church of
the Holy Trinity of Norwich, by this charter or

By this it appears that Herbert had then built the
church of the Holy Trinity, the mother church of
the diocefe of Norwich, and it feems alfo that he
had then creeled a monaflery or priory thece, the
church of St. Michael being (tiled without the mo-
nallery, and that this grant was to annex this land
to the fee, fo that Herbert foon after fettled it on the
prior or monaftery founded by him.

By a grant of Henry I. it was confirmed to the
monks.

Hiftorians relate that this church of St. Michael
takes its name from the tombs, as a remarkable place
of burial, but this is a miflake.

Richard, duke of Normandy, who died in 996,
creeled an abbey in Monte qui dicitur Tumba, out of
veneration to St. Michael. Many churches were
dedicated to St. Michael in Monte Tuniba, a place fo
called, where, it is faid he appeared, and perform-
ed a miracle.

This lordfliip extended alfo into Attlebridge, where
the priory had confiderablc pofleflions.

G4 Emma



$4 HUNDRED OF

Emma Baidolph granted to the prior of Norwich,
four acres and an half of land in Taverham.

Alan de Taverham gave lands to the priory. John
Bardolph was a benefaclor in the gth of Edward I.
as was Agnes Bardolph ; and fir John de Efton gave
lands here in the faid reign ; fo that the prior, in
the i^th of that king, claimed free- warren, a gal-
lows, the aflife, Sec. and complaint was made that
he had ere&ed a pool in the water between Ringland
Hill and North Croft, and appiopriated it as a fe-
veral.

In 1428, the temporalities of the priory were
61. 135. lod. ob. and the cellerer accounted for 81.
us. lid. received out of this manor, and for 35.
paid that year to the manor of Hetherfet, 133. 4cl. to
St. Paul's hofpital, and 35. 6d. to the prior of St.
Leonard's, as rents refolute.

On the diffolution of the priory, it came to the
crown, and Henry VIII. in 1538, on the foundation
of a dean and prebendaries, &:c. granted this lord-
fhip to them, as it now continues. In the Gth year
of Elizabeih, it was granted by leafe, with the leet,
for 99 years, to Henry Riches, efq. of Swannington,
who afligned it to Augufline Sotherton, efq.

Sir Augufline Sotherton married Mary, daughter
and fole heir of Frauds Sharnborne, elq. of Sham-
borne, one of the moil ancient families- 'in Norfolk.

An excellent and curious furvey of this lordfhip,
faken in the 8th of Edward 1. was in the year 1714
in the hands of Mr. Emur/d Rippingale, atto.ncy at
law, of Norwich, or of Mr. Edmund Thimelthorpc
of the faid city.

In Taverham, Harold had a iordfhip in king Ed-
ward's reign, which he held at the Conqueft, and at
his death the Conqueror ieizcd on it. Ic was a bc-
ruite to Gawflon, and valued with it.

Sir John de Eflon had a lordfhip in this town in
the 5^d of Henry III. held of VValtci Gillard, earl
of Buckingham, and came by the hcirefs of Efton to
Thomas de Brockdifh, who gave name to it.

Clare, had a right herein in the gd of Henry VI.
and before this, Elizabeth lady Say, wife of fir Wil-

Alan, earl of Richmond, had alfo a lordfhip here
on the derivation of Turbert, a free-man, who
poffelled it HI Edward's reign, valued at 205.

Kalmer held it under carl Alan at the furvey, and
it was valued in Felthorpe.

The church was dedicated to St. Edmund, and
had two medieties, one mediety was in the prior of
Norwich, the other mediety belonged to the lordfhips
of Ralph de Beaufoe, and William earl Warren, who
prcfented alternately, there being two poitiuns, or
reclors, belonging to this mediety.

In the reign of Edward I. one portion of this
mediety was valued at eight marks, the other of the
fame value.

In 1395; the advowfon of one of thefe portions
was fettled by fine on John Winter, 8cc. by John
Gournay and Alice his wife, with Drayton and
Hellefden manors.

The prior of St. Faith's had a portion of tithe out
of this mediety, valued then at 35.

Simon, bifhop of Norwich, in 1265, confirmed
to the monks of Caflle-acre in Taverham, and Dray-
ton, two parts of the corn tithe of the whole demean
of William de Taverham, which bis anceflors had
given to them.

The prefent value of each of thefe portions is 4!.

one, (that which belonged to Beaufoe's fee) and
Miles Branthwayte, efq. of the other.

WROX-HAM, vulgarly pronounced Roxham.
The principal lorcHhip in this town was at the fur-

Su'gand, archbifhop of Canterbury, held it in the
rime of the Confeffor in his own right, as a tempo-
