All Saints Manor, Creeting

A modernised version of the older hall.

The manor passed to the Crown, for in 1544 it was granted by Henry VIII to Sir Thomas Pope, who had licence to alienate to Sir John Jermy, son of Edmund Jermy, of Metfield. He married Margaret, daughter of Sir Thomas Teye, Knt., and on his death in 1560, the manor passed to his son and heir Francis Jermy. He married Elizabeth, daughter and co-heir of Sir William Fitz-William, Knt of Ireland, and apparently parted with the manor.
