Previous Lords:
The priory of Holywell (co. Midd.) owned DUNTON MANOR, the fifth in this parish, which originated in various grants of land there to the priory, of which the earliest was that of Roger de Brahi in 1181. Geoffrey Chamberlain and William his brother both gave half a virgate of land to the priory in the early thirteenth century, and these grants were confirmed in 1235. In the fourteenth century the prioress successfully claimed view of frankpledge twice yearly in Dunton, and at the Dissolution the manor, which was valued at £13 6s. 8d., lapsed to the crown, and was granted in 1579 to Edward Downing and John Walker, but no further trace of it has been found.
