Lordship Title of Warfield ID1662

Title Type:
Previous Lords:
The manor of WARFIELD was held in the time of Edward the Confessor by Queen Edith, and after the Norman Conquest William I held it in demesne. In the 13th century it was in the hands of the Bishop of Winchester, and had probably been granted by the Crown to the see of Winchester at the same time as Wargrave Manor (q.v.), although it is not actually mentioned until the grant of Edward I in 1284, probably because Warfield was considered parcel of Wargrave. It has followed the descent of the Wargrave Manor (q.v.) with practically no break until the 20th century. The manor is now the property of Lord Braybrooke, who retained it after the sale of Wargrave Manor.
