    Manor of East Twyford, Willesden, Middlesex:

    The manor or prebend of EAST TWYFORD belonged in theory to the prebendaries from the time of the earliest, Durand, a canon who held 2 hides there in 1086. In 1523 the manor was said to be held in socage of the prebend of Twyford, but in 1620 it was not known of whom it was held and there was no further evidence of any connexion with the prebendary.

    From an early date the manor seems to have been in the hands of powerful laymen who established a hereditary title and treated it as an independent lay estate. The Cornhills, of whom William was described in 1305 as of East Twyford, were dealing in land there in 1294. Richard of Cornhill acquired a messuage, land, and rent in 1306 from William de Kele, which he settled in 1325. Richard was succeeded by his son John (fl. 1351-9) and granddaughter Alice, who married successively Henry Frowyk and Thomas Charlton. In 1412 Alice, then a widow for the second time, was taxed at 5 in Willesden, the highest assessment in the parish.
