A reference to HUDDINGTON occurs amongst the boundaries given in a charter relating to Crowle, which seems to date from the 11th century. In 1086 Alric the archdeacon held a hide of land at Huddington, which had formerly been held by Wulfric, as a villein, of the Bishop of Worcester's manor of Northwick. The overlordship of the Bishop of Worcester was recognized until the 17th century.
In the reign of Henry II this hide at Huddington was held by Alan de Warnestre. It must have passed before the end of that reign to Simon son of Adam de Croome, for Simon was holding a hide at Huddington without doing service for it, and this land he said he held of Roger de St. John, who held it of the bishop. Richard de Hodington was in possession of the estate in 1299, and is probably to be identified with Richard de Cromelyn, who was holding the vill of Huddington in the previous year, and paid a subsidy there in 1327. He must have been succeeded shortly afterwards by John de Hodington, who paid subsidy in Huddington in 1332-3. Walter de Hodington, who was a witness to a deed of 1339-40, was probably son of this John. In 1390-1 the manor was settled on Walter's son Thomas and his wife Joan daughter of Richard Thurgrim and their issue, with contingent remainders to Thomas son of Alexander de Besford and Thomas son of John Moraunt, sons of Margaret sister of Thomas Hodington. Thomas Hodington left two daughters, Agnes wife of William Russell and Joan wife of Roger Winter. Nicholas Stokes and Robert Russell, probably the son of William and Agnes, were said to be holding the manor of Huddington in 1431. The Russells received as their share a rent of 22s. from the manor, while the manor itself passed to the Winters. Robert Winter was apparently in possession in 1487-8, as he then claimed certain fishing rights at Huddington. Roger Winter, son of this Robert, died in 1535 holding the manor of Huddington, which then passed to his son Robert. Robert was succeeded in 1549 by his son George Winter. Robert had settled the manor in 1542 upon his wife Catherine, who afterwards married Thomas Smith and held some estate in the manor in 1567.
