Chipping Campden and Charringworth – Sale of Lordships of the Manor

Events, Features, Places by Tony No Comments »

Thursday 15th November 14.00 – Auction in London of these two Lordships of the Manor

Lordships of the Manor are among the oldest titles in England and pre-date the Norman Conquest, begun by William I at the Battle of Hastings in 1066.

The Manor was the pivot of the Feudal System and by the reign of Edward the Confessor(1042-66) the Lord of the Manor was the most important person in village affairs. The Domesday Book compiled in 1086 listed 13,418 Manors and their owners. In return for his protection and the land he gave them, the people on the Manor owed their Lord services ranging from money rents to working so many days a week on the Lord’s “home farm” or demesne without pay.

The Lordships of the Manors of Chipping Campden and of Charringworth are being put up for sale on the instructions of the 5th Earl of Gainsborough. They have been in his family since the late 16th Century. The Lordship of Chipping Campden (Lot 16) is estimated to attract bids of between £10,000 and £12,500 and Charringworth (Lot 11)  between £5000 and £7000. Both Lordships of the Manor can be traced back to the Doomsday Book.

These two Lordships are included in an auction of 23 Lordships of the Manor, also including Diddington, Warwickshire (Lot 2) and Sheriff’s Lench Worcestershire (Lot 18) , which is being held by Manorial Auctioneers Ltd who are part of The Manorial Society of Great Britain.

The Auction is being held on Thursday 15th November 2007 at 2.00 pm at
