Charles Heriott appears to have come into possession of the Manor at South Wootton according to the terms of his marriage contract, which was finalised before his marriage on 24 June 1700. It had been in the ownership of his father, James Heriott, for some years beforehand. Charles lived there and at Doctors' Commons, London until his death on 20 June 1726. His widow, Mary Heriott (née Nicoll) continued to live at the Manor until her death in the first half of November 1753. Both before and after the Heriotts' ownership of the Manor it belonged to the Hammond family, which has various marital connections to the Harbords, whose relation to the Heriotts is not yet known, but they were, according to various wills, cousins of some degree.
