Lordship Title of Whipsnade ID14095

Title Type:
Previous Lords:
In 1228 4 acres of land in Whipsnade were granted to Dunstable Priory by Juliana de Landas, (fn. 41) and in 1252 the priory received a further grant of a carucate of land from William Russell and Hawise his wife in return for the inclusion of their names in the prayers of the church. (fn. 42) At the Dissolution the total value of lands held by Dunstable Priory in Westoning and Whipsnade was 3s. (fn. 43) It is probable, however, that the carucate of land granted to it in 1252 is not there accounted for, but became merged in the manor of Shortgrave, which extended into Whipsnade parish and was also held by the monks.
