Weston Parish

British Isles Genealogy | County of Suffolk

Weston or Westuna

The author of "Magna Britannia" makes the lordship of this parish to have been anciently held by Hugh de Berry; and a branch of the Leman family were sometime seated here. In 1764, William Leman, Esq., was owner of the said estate; which, with another seat in this parish, became vested in the Barne family, and which lately belonged to Thomas Farr, Esq.

In the 8th of King Henry V., Robert Garneys, who married Elizabeth, daughter and heir of Sir Ralph Bigot, gave by will, to Ralph, his son and heir, after his wife's decease, the manors of Redisham and Barsham; and that of Weston, to Robert, his son, late Edmund de Redisham, and William Barsham's; which his father bought. His will was proved in 1425; and Robert Garneys, of Kenton, inherited; who died in 1446, without issue.

Weston Hall was formerly the estate of the Redes, of Beccles; and passed from them, by purchase, to the family of Barry; from whom it went, in like manner, to that of Barne, of Satterley; who were also owners of the estate formerly Leman's. Here was also a branch of the Bokenham family.
