Manorial History - Eggington Manor
1518 is the first appearance of this manor and in the possession
of William Man. The Man family have a long association with the village,
with the name of John Man listed in 1393 as a trustee in a settlement.
Through the 16th and 17th century various members of the Man family held
the manor, although it is not clear from documents what the relationship
between successive owners was.
In 1656, a John Man, the lord of the manor died, and it was
probably his son John (husband to Mary Elkin) who alienated Eggington
to John Gardner in 1710. In 1722 it had become the possession of Susannah
Calfe, who still held Eggington manor in 1741. Subsequently, and only
for a short period, Sarah Huxley was the owner, and by 1787 ownership
was with John Bond. John alienated in 1790 to Thomas Goodwin and at the
beginning of the 18th century George Goodwin was the lord of the manor.
