The manor of NEWENHAM or WARFIELD was a sub-manor in the parish held of the Bishop of Winchester by fealty and suit of court at Wargrave, but its early history is obscure. In 1349 William son of Sir John de Newenham held lands, meadows, pastures, woods and rents in Warfield, possibly identical with this manor. Before 1451 John Norreys of Yattendon held the manor of Newenham, which he settled in that year on himself, his wife Margaret and his heirs male. He died in 1467, his wife surviving him, and the manor eventually descended to his son and heir Sir William Norreys. The latter died in 1506–7 and was succeeded by his grandson John, who settled it in 1542 on his heir Henry Norreys, afterwards the first Lord Norreys of Rycote. Its descent cannot again be traced till early in the 17th century, when it came into the possession of Richard Staverton of Bray. It appears to have passed with the Staverton holding to Henry Neville, and from him to his nephew Richard Neville, the lord of Warfield Manor, who held it in 1705. From that time it has passed with Warfield Manor, and is now the property of Lord Braybrooke.
