Lordship Title of Westhey and Faldo ID1315

County:
Title Type:
Previous Lords:
There were apparently two other manors in this parish, which by 1613 had amalgamated, and were always afterwards known as the manor of WESTHEY AND FALDO. Of these the manor of Faldo owed its name to the family of Faldo or Keynes of Faldo. William de Faldo and Cecilia his wife owned land in Higham Gobion in 1245, and the heirs of the former in 1302 held 1 hide of Ralph Butler for the fifth part of a knight's fee. This estate, which is mentioned for the first time as a manor in 1336, was still held at that date of Ralph Butler, but the overlordship is not again mentioned.
