Previous Lords:
A manor known as GOLDINGTON or EATON MANOR appears in the 15th century. Its origin is found in that third of Eaton Manor which on the death of Thomas d'Engayne in 1367 passed to his sister and co-heir Joyce wife of John Goldington of Essex. In 1370 John and Joyce made a settlement of the third part of the manor on John de Hemmyngford, Nicholas de Styvecle, William de Castelacre, Robert de Huntingdon and Thomas Walton, to hold to them and the heirs of the said Nicholas de Styvecle. Joan wife of William Colville and widow of John d'Engayne, brother of Joyce, held the whole manor until her death in 1390. Joyce's third was then said to be the right of John de Hemmyngford, William de Castelacre and Robert de Huntingdon, survivors in the above settlement. The descent of the manor is lost from this date till 1510, when Sir John Fisher died in possession of it. His son Michael, who died in 1550, also held Goldington Manor, as it was now called. His granddaughter Agnes, daughter of John Fisher, married Oliver St. John, to whom the manor then passed. It was retained by the St. John family till early in the 17th century; Oliver Lord St. John held it at his death in 1618. According to Lysons it next passed to the Gery family, and was sold by them to William Dobbs in 1649. The same authority states that it was subsequently in the families of Kent, Brewer, Sibley and Waller, and that in 1782 it was purchased of Joseph Green by John Brickwood, who had again sold it to Mr. Becket, a coachmaker at Huntingdon. No later mention of the property has been found.
