Manorial Estate, 1346-1366, Salford Manor, Salford, Milton Keynes, Bedfordshire, MK17, GB. In 1086 Hugh de Beauchamp held a 5-hide manor in Salford which included a mill worth 9s. 4d. and woodland for 150 swine. His predecessor was Turchil, a thegn of King Edward. The overlordship of the manor was attached to the barony of Bedford (q.v.) and was held by John de Steyngreve in 1275 and William de Patishull in 1366.

No tenant of Hugh is mentioned at Domesday, but this manor was early held by a family who assumed the name de Salford. Nigel de Salford, the first of whom mention has been found, was a 12th-century benefactor of Newnham Priory. His son, Hugh de Salford, had succeeded his father by 1199, in which year Walter son of Gregory quitclaimed a virgate of land to him in this parish. His name also appears in the Newnham cartulary, as does that of his son Nigel, who held one fee of the barony of Bedford c. 1240. John de Salford, probably his son, held in this parish between 1275 and 1303, being succeeded at the latter date by his son Nigel de Salford. Hugh brother of Nigel acknowledged in 1312 the latter's claim to Salford Manor, which was held in 1346 by Peter de Salford, who received a grant of free warren here in 1353. He was still holding in 1366, and is the last member of his family of whom mention has been found in Salford. In 1428 this manor is described as late belonging to Ankareta, who was wife of Thomas Drakelowe, and whom it has not been found possible to identify. At this date Oliver Groos and other trustees relinquished their rights to Thomas Widville and others.

Peter married.
