Previous Lords:
Chicksands Priory owned COPLE MANOR in this parish. It originated in a grant made by Adeliza wife of Wigan which is mentioned in the foundation charter of Payn de Beauchamp. During the 13th and 14th centuries this grant was supplemented by various others. In 1291 its value was £10 8s. 8d., and in 1330 the prior claimed view of frankpledge in his manor of Cople. At the Dissolution it was granted to Sir John Gostwick in 1539, and hence-forward follows the same descent as his manor of Willington, to which, as seen above, Woodend became attached in 1686, and its later history runs with the latter manor (q.v.).
