In the time of King John, Sir William de Weyland, Knt., fined for his villeins here and in Charsfield.  He does not, however, seem to have held the lordship, for this does not appear to have come to the Weyland family till the grant of Alan, Lord Burnell, of Acton Burnell, in Shropshire, to Sir John de Weyland, son of Sir Nicholas de Weyland and Beatrice his wife, about 1259, in which year a grant of free warren was made to the said Sir John de Weyland here.  From this time to the time of Henry Bedingfield and Catherine his wife in 1541, the manor passed in the same course as the Manor of Brandeston, in Loes Hundred.  Nicholas de Weyland had a grant of free warren here in 1285.

Davy says the manor passed on the death of Sir Edmund Weyland in 1369 to his brother Sir John Weyland, and on his death to his daughter and heir, Elizabeth, married to John Harewell, of Warwickshire, whose daughter and heir Joan married John Streech, of Devonshire, and died in 1434.  He then makes the manor go to a cousin, Sir Thomas Tuddenham, upon whom he states it was settled by fine, and finally that when Sir Thomas was beheaded in 1461 it passed to Margaret, his sister and heir, the wife of Edmund Bedingfield.  A portion of this statement does not, however, seem to be correct.

The manor is specifically mentioned in the inquisition p.m. of Sir Thomas Tuddenham in 1461, and in that of his sister, Margaret Bedingfield, in 1474.
