Lordship Title of Estons ID1088

Title Type:
Previous Lords:
Scanty reference has been found from the fifteenth century onwards to ESTONS MANOR in Holme belonging to the family of Eston. In 1484 Thomas Eston and Christina his wife conveyed this so-called manor by fine to William Finderne and others under trust for re-conveyance. Some years later, in 1516, Richard Eston, probably a son of Thomas, died seised of lands and tenements in Holme, leaving a son Thomas aged six, who in 1549 did homage at the Biggleswade court for a messuage and a virgate of land inherited from his father. The latter history of this property may be inferred from an extract from a Biggleswade Manor Court Roll (c. 1660) by which customary lands which had formerly belonged to Thomas Eston, then to William Plomer, were transferred by Sir Edward Alford and others to Erasmus de la Fontaine. No further mention of this property has been found.
