    CLOPTON BURY manors also called WAKEFIELDS c. 1480 and in 1530, was held in demesne by 1166 by Thomas de Andeville, whose son Hamelin (fl. 1198-1217) was succeeded by Richard de Andeville, lord c. 1235 and in 1242. The next lord Alexander de Andeville died between 1271 and 1274. His widow Beatrice held Clopton in dower in 1279. By 1283 their daughter Beatrice had married Robert Hoo, who was granted free warren there in 1292. In 1298 they granted the manor for his life to William Bereford, chief justice of the Common Pleas 1309-26, to whom, after Robert's death in 1310, Beatrice released the freehold in 1313.

    When Bereford died in 1326 his heir was his eldest surviving son Edmund, already in holy orders and a pluralist. Of Edmund's three illegitimate sons, upon whom he settled his extensive lands before his death in 1354, the second, Baldwin, received Clopton in tail male in 1342, subject to a life interest for Margaret, countess of Hereford, and succeeded to the remaining lands in 1356. In 1372 Sir Baldwin Bereford sold Clopton manor to William Newport, a London fishmonger, who died in 1391 having provided for its sale. By 1393 it had been acquired by the brothers Richard and Thomas Haselden of Guilden Morden, after whose deaths possession came in 1405 to their illegitimate cousin Hugh Haselden. In 1406, however, following the aged Sir Baldwin Bereford's death in 1405, the descendants of Edmund Bereford's three sisters and lawful heirs, Joan, Agnes, and Margaret, won their claim to the manor on the expiry of the entail. They divided the manor into fractions between them. From: 'Parishes: Croydon cum Clopton', A History of the County of Cambridge and the Isle of Ely: Volume 8 (1982), pp. 30-42.
