The Manors of Foxton

Foxton actually fell under three manors, held immediately after the Norman conquest by the de Mandeville family, the Abbey of Chatteris and in the case of the smaller manor 'of the Honour of Richmond', by two un-named knights.

Foxton had, of course, existed as a manor in the pre-Conquest Saxon period. A manor was an area of land granted to a local Lord - hence 'Lord of the Manor'. Asgar* and Sigar* are referred to in Domesday Book* as having been Saxon lords of Foxton Manor, and Sigar in fact continued to hold the Manor of Foxton after the Conquest, although his overlord was no longer Asgar (who died at Hastings) but Geoffrey de Mandeville*, to whom the land had been granted by King William.
