It was then under the control of Cluniac Monks, until after the Henry the Eighth's Dissolution of the Monasteries, at which time the Lord of the Manor was the Duke of Norfolk (Thomas Howard).

Pocahontas (Rebecca) was just 22 when she passed away three years later, nonetheless she produced a son, Tom, who later returned to America. The hall endured for centuries but was destroyed by fire in nineteen forty one.
