Manorial Estate, 1386-1399, Purley Parva Manor, Purley on Thames, Reading, Berkshire, RG8, GB. 2 The manor of PURLEY PARVA (Purlew Westbrook, xvii cent.), assessed at half a hide, was held at the time of the Domesday Survey by Theodoric the Goldsmith, and had belonged in the reign of Edward the Confessor to Edward...William de Sifrewast was succeeded by his son Nicholas, whose heir, another William, in 1302 enfeoffed Henry Buskre of Malines and Cecily his wife, whose descendants held the manor for more than 120 years. Henry 'Malyns' died about 1324. Cecily survived him and was seised of the estate until her death in 1331; her heir was her son Edmund Malyns, then said to be thirty years old, though his age had been stated at twenty-eight and more in the inquest taken after his father's death.

In 1339 Edmund obtained licence to grant the property to his son Reynold Malyns and to Edmund de Hampden for life. Reynold afterwards acquired also lands in Oxfordshire and became a knight. He died in 1384, leaving as his heir his son Edmund, on whose death in 1386 the manor of Purley Parva passed, for the only time during the Malyns' tenancy, to a minor. This was Edmund, the younger son of Sir Edmund Malyns, upon whom the estate had been settled for life with reversion to his father's heirs and contingent remainder to Thomas Barentyne and Joan his wife. Edmund Malyns died in 1399 and was succeeded by his elder brother Reynold.

Reynold Malyns remained in possession of the manor until 1424, in which year he conveyed it to Thomas and Alice Walshe and John their son...
