THE MANOR OF SAWTRY BEAUMES (SAWTREY ST. ANDREW)

Scope and Content

Although there are very few documents

which mention the manor itself, some

conclusions can be reached about it. It

was owned by the Cornwallis family in

the late 16th century, and some time

after c.1610 passed into the hands of

the Cotton family, who owned it until it

was sold to Arthur Annesley (VIII) in

the mid 18th century.

This section also includes documents

about the settlement of parts of the

estate on members of the Cotton family.

NOTE: 2D-8D all concern properties which

at one time or another were part of the

estate owned first by the Cornwallis

family, and then the Cottons, and then

(it is presumed) the Annesleys.
