Content and context

Atherstone manor in Warwickshire was part of the estates in England owned by the Abbey of Bec, and as such was passed to King's College at the Foundation by King Henry VI in the 1440s. The land was later sold to the Carthusian priory of Mountgrace in Yorkshire in 1462, for which the College was compensated with an annual pension of £16 from 1505. Papers concerning the dispute between the College and the priory over the land are kept under KCAR/6/2/8/8 Legal Papers. In the sixteenth century the manor became the property of Henry Grey, Duke of Suffolk who, as father of Lady Jane Grey, was executed by Mary I for High Treason.
