Manorial Estate, Bef 1524, Ovingdean Manor, Brighton, East Sussex, BN2, GB. 1 Before 1524 the manor had passed to William Everard of Albourne who in that year bequeathed the manor to his wife Jane until his son John should be 22. The manor, stocked with 1,200 sheep, was then to pass to John, who was also to have the 'ferm lands' which William held at Ovingdean, evidently the land belonging to Lewes Priory. This was to be stocked with 800 sheep, besides oxen, kine, hogs, and horses.

George, Lord Bergavenny, sold the wardship of John and the custody of his land in 1526 to his mother, but Jane subsequently complained that Lord Bergavenny had not kept his agreement with her. John Everard died in 1541 having conveyed all his Sussex manors to Richard Shelley in trust for his two sisters Mary and Dorothy. Mary married Richard Bellingham of Hangleton and Dorothy became the wife of Henry Goring.

Will, 24 Jun 1524.
