Lordship Title of Beedon ID14232

Title Type:
Previous Lords:
In 965 King Edgar granted to the abbey of Abingdon 5 cassatae of land at BEEDON and other lands there were left to the abbey in 1015 by Eadwy, a prince of Wessex. Thus it came about that in Domesday Book the abbey is entered as holding the whole of Beedon. The overlordship remained with the abbey of Abingdon, which held of the king by barony until the 16th century. In 1505–6 the manor is described as held of the abbey, and in 1538, when the abbot surrendered his estates to the king, the overlordship of the abbey seems to have lapsed.
