History Manor Houses of the Isle of Wight

Bagwich Manor

REF NR: 433

"BAGWICH (Abaginge, xi cent.; Bagwich, xiv cent.) was held before and after the Conquest as an alod by Alsi, the king's thegn. It probably afterwards passed to the lords of the Isle of Wight, for it was granted by one of the Redvers family to the priory of Christchurch Twyneham, and confirmed to it by Richard I, by William Earl of Devon, and by Edward II in 1313. It is not mentioned among the priory lands at the Dissolution. It may possibly have become annexed to the manor of Apse in Newchurch, which was also held by the priory, for in 1603 a tenement in Bagwich was held of the manor of Apse, and in 1709 the manor of Bagwich belonged to Thomas Rice, whose ancestors had held Apse. He conveyed it in that year to Thomas Macham, and it afterwards passed to the Millers. In 1723 it was conveyed by Sir Thomas Miller, bart., who seems to have inherited the manor from his grandfather Thomas, to Joachim Peterson. In 1780 Thomas Dickenson paid a fee-farm rent to the Crown for Bagwich. James Whitewood held it in 1827, and it is at present held by the rector of Wootton as part of the glebe."
