Lordship Title of Stratton and Holme ID1338

Title Type:
Previous Lords:
There are four entries concerning the hamlet of STRATTON in the Domesday Survey. Ralph de Lisle, lord of Biggleswade manor, held a manor assessed at 4 hides, which had formerly belonged to Archbishop Stigand. This manor appears to have become absorbed in Biggleswade, and passed with it to the bishop of Lincoln, who in 1284 held half a fee in Stratton as part of Biggleswade manor. A second holder was the Countess Judith, who held 3½ virgates which afterwards became STRATTON MANOR. It formed part of the honour of Huntingdon, and on its subdivision among the co-heirs of John earl of Huntingdon, the overlordship of Stratton fell to Ada his youngest sister, and, like Potton Bur detts (q.v.), passed by her marriage with Henry Hastings into the possession of the earls of Pembroke.
