Wydcombe Manor

REF NR: 512

"The manor of WYDCOMBE (Wytecumbe, Wydecoumb, xiii cent.; Wydnecumbe, xiv cent.) was held of the manor of Appuldurcombe. It was granted to the abbey of Montebourg by Maud de Estur in the latter part of the 13th century, having been held by her family since the time of Domesday. This grant must have been before the time of the Testa de Nevill, as the Abbot of Montebourg is there entered as holding a fee in Wydcombe, and twelve tenants of the 'manor' of Wydcombe were impleaded in 1304 for pasturing on the abbot's land. Wydcombe followed the same descent as the manor of Appuldurcombe (q.v.) until the middle of the 19th century, when it was purchased by Captain, afterwards Major, Dawes, and passed from him to the present owner, M. de Chabannes."
