LOCAL GOVERNMENT.

In 1279 the lord of Little Haddon and presumably his tenants owed suit to Bampton Earls manor. (fn. 20) A separate court baron may have been instituted in the early 14th century when Haddon manor was regranted in fee, (fn. 21) but in 1500 the tithingman attended the Bampton view of frankpledge, at which his successors were still appointed in the later 17th century. (fn. 22) For poor-law and other civil purposes Haddon was administered with Bampton and Weald through Bampton vestry, treated above. (fn. 23)
