The Manor of Belchamp Walter alias Belchamp William and Manor of the Rectory of Belchamp Walter

This page is about The Manor of Belchamp Walter not the Hall or the dwelling that was situated here or for that matter who lived here.

The Hall, the building, was probably not built until the 14th century. Who owned the manor of Belchamp Walter and who had had "control" over it are two seperate issues. In early medievil times it was more about who was assigned "Knight's Fees" and who benefited from the land that was more to the point. Simon of Pattishall is an example of a knight that accumulated 6 Kings's Fees.

The Manor and Rectory was rented in 1691, see Essex Archive. Was sold to Thomas Ruggles 1741 and rented back in 1776-1777.
