Westover Manor

REF NR: 525

"The manor of WESTOVER or CALBOURNE was held in the time of Edward the Confessor by Bolla in parage, and passed at the Conquest to William Fitz Stur. The manor has always been held of Carisbrooke Castle as a member of the manor of Gatcombe (q.v.), with which it descended until the middle of the 16th century, when its two moieties were held, like those of Gatcombe, by Sir Geoffrey Poole and Richard Ernley. Sir Geoffrey and his wife Constance sold their moiety in 1556 to John Erlisman, and in 1564 Richard Ernley and his wife Barbara sold their share to the same John."
