Previous Lords:
Aldulf de Braci during the reign of Henry II granted 40 acres of land in Eaton to the Prior of Dunstable. The prior apparently found difficulty in proving his claim to this property, and finally, by a fresh agreement between himself and William de Cantlowe in 1209, it was agreed that the latter should endow his church with 20 acres of land in Eaton for the support of one canon in Dunstable Priory, whose presentation should belong to William and his heirs. In 1323 the prior received a grant of free warren to extend over his lands in Eaton, and at the time of the Valor in 1535 an annual rent of 12s. 11½d. was paid to Lord Bray for the priory lands in Eaton and Houghton Regis.
