Admin HistoryHeywood manor in White Waltham was held in the Middle Ages by the abbey of Waltham Holy Cross, Essex.
In 1541 it was granted by the Crown to John Norreys of Fyfield, Usher of the Black Rod (d.1577), in whose family it remained until 1612 when it passed to the Earl of Kellie, husband of Elizabeth Norreys. In 1623 the Earl sold Heywood to Sir Edmund Sawyer (d.1676), in whose family the manor and estate remained.
