Wychnor manor house :: Shared Description

In 1066 Wychnor was held by four free thegns. The name of the vill is Saxon, but it has been stated that the village had been occupied during the Iron Age. By 1087, (Domesday Book) the vill was held by Robert of Stafford. He had a manager to farm part of the land, and the remainder was farmed by peasants (seven families). There was meadow land, woodland and a mill, which has not survived. At some stage a moated manor house was occupied by Sir Philip de Sommerville, and the manor passed to the Griffiths family in 1355.
