Lordship Title of Frilsham ID14248

Title Type:
Previous Lords:
The manor of FRILSHAM had been held of Edward the Confessor by two free men, and at the time of the Domesday Survey was in the hands of Henry de Ferrers. It would appear to have passed to his son Robert, who in 1138 was created Earl Ferrers, and the overlordship continued in the hands of his descendants until the 13th century, when we find the manor described as held of the fee of Earl Ferrers. Robert, the sixth earl, was engaged in a rebellion in 1263 and was three years later deprived of his earldom and estates, which were then granted to Edmund Crouchback, the king's son. In consequence this overlordship followed the descent of the earldom and duchy of Lancaster. Some court rolls of this manor of the year 1440–1 are to be found among the archives of the duchy.
