Lordship Title of Parentines ID1221

Title Type:
Previous Lords:
A small estate in Sharnbrook, later called PARENTINES MANOR, was also attached to the barony of Bedford, whose overlordship is acknowledged in 1278, 1302, 1346 and 1428. The first mention that has been found of the Parentine family in Sharnbrook is amongst the benefactions to Newnham Priory, where Robert de Parentine's name occurs as having bestowed 13 selions of land in Haselhoo in this parish. This would probably de early in the 13th century. In 1278 Ellen de Parentine held 1 hide in Sharnbrook, and her name reappears in feudal aids for 1302 and 1316. No further trace has been found of the Parentines, but by 1346 their fee appears to have become assimilated with Langtons Manor (q.v.). Parentines Manor, though following the same descent, did not lose its separate identity, which is mentioned as late as 1766.
