Previous Lords:
The MANOR OF CLOPHILL AND CAINHOE was held of the honour or barony of Cainhoe until the reign of Henry VIII, when it was annexed to the honour of Ampthill, and granted out by the king from time to time: the overlordship is referred to as late as 1628, but as there is no further mention, the right probably fell into abeyance. On the partition of the Cainhoe barony in 1233 the manor of Clophill and Cainhoe was not divided, but fell to the inheritance of Isabel, the eldest sister, and continued in her descendants until after 1415, when it passed to the Greys, earls of Kent, and finally came into the hands of the king.
