This is the part of Little-Elingham, lying in Forehoe hundred, which was a separate manor belonging to Ailwin in the Confessor's time, when it was worth 20s. and was given by the Conqueror to Roger Bigot, of whom Stanart, an Englishman, held it at the survey, it being then worth 25s. (fn. 1) At his death it came to the Crown, and being joined to the capital manor, it hath continued so ever since, and passed with it, as you may see at p. 287, where the history of this town occurs, the whole (except this part) being in Wayland hundred.
