LAND IN EYDON OWNED BY A BRANCH OF THE PRESTIDGE FAMILY

Scope and Content

This land remained in the Prestidge (or

Prestwich) family until one Thomas

Prestwich had two sisters, who divided

the property and took each to their

respective husbands. The history of

both halves is followed below, until

each of them was bought by Francis

Annesley (VIII).

There are other Prestidges mentioned in

13D and 16D. It seems that although it

is possible that all three branches are

related, they purchased and sold land

separately, and should not be confused.
