Bigbury Manor

REF NR: 488

"BIGBURY (Bikeberye, xiii cent.; Bydeborough, xvi cent.; Bidborowe, xvii cent.), a small holding to the north of Apse Heath, was confirmed to the abbey of Quarr by Isabel de Fortibus, and remained in the possession of the abbey until the Dissolution, when it passed to the Crown. It was granted in 1610 to Lionel Cranfield, who surrendered it in the following year. In 1631 Basil Nicoll and others obtained a grant of the messuage or grange of Bidborowe."
