Lordship Title of Cadbury ID13943

Title Type:
Previous Lords:
In 1208–9 Robert de Braybrook received a confirmation from the Crown of lands in Eaton granted to him by Hugh son of Oliver de Beauchamp, which lands were later known as CADBURY MANOR. This manor was held as of the barony of Eaton by yearly service of two pairs of gilt spurs, or 12d. and suit of court, no mention of the overlordship being found after its grant to Bushmead in 1380. Cadbury Manor follows the same descent as Potton Regis (q.v.), passing on the death (c. 1270) of Christine wife of Henry son of Robert Braybrook to her granddaughter Alice Latimer. In 1286–7 Alice Latimer and William her husband were called upon to justify their claim to view of frankpledge in this manor; he was at the time abroad, and they did not come up for judgement on the day appointed, and the manor was therefore taken into the king's hands. In 1309 Alice Latimer made a settlement of the manor on herself for life, after which it was to pass to her son Nicholas. In 1313 the Prior of Bushmead claimed 10 marks damage against Alice Latimer and nineteen others, her tenants, for trespassing; she claimed as justification that she and her tenants of Cadbury had had a right of way through the prior's wood from time immemorial. There is no evidence that Nicholas succeeded his mother, and Cadbury Manor may have returned to the Braybrook family, for in 1380 Robert Braybrook, Bishop of London, and Reginald his brother (possibly acting for others) and various trustees alienated the manor to Bushmead Priory. At the Dissolution 120 acres of woods called Cadbury are mentioned among its possessions, and passed to the Gery family, following the same descent as Bushmead Priory (q.v.), but no further mention has been found of the manor. Cates Wood still exists in the north of the parish.
