Previous Lords:
Hugh the Fleming, brother of Walter, owned half a hide and one quarter of a virgate in Sharnbrook in 1086, which is afterwards found attached to the barony of Wahull from the 13th to the 15th century. Robert was the tenant of Hugh at Domesday, and this land passed later to a family called alternatively Rivers or Water. Richard Rivers held half a fee in Sharnbrook at the time of the Testa. In 1278 the same Richard held half a hide, which in 1302 had passed to Henry atte Water. Alice atte Water was holding in 1346, after which only one further mention has been found of this fraction of a knight's fee, when in 1428 William Herdewyk was declared to hold the quarter fee which Alice atte Water formerly held.
