There were anciently two manors in this parish; one of which belonged to Sir William de Kerdeston, the other to Walter de Bern-ham, which had the advowson attached. In the reign of King Edward IV., John Brightyeve, of Bernham Broom, in Norfolk, held the same; he deceased in 1497, and devised it to his daughter Agnes; it soon afterwards became vested in the Rous family, and so continues; the Earl of Stradbroke being the present lord and patron.
