MELDRETH: Manors and other Estates.  

.... Agnes's heir Eleanor, daughter of Bartholomew Thornton, was tenant in 1299 and in 1302. (fn. 138) By 1312 she had married Ralph, son of William FitzRalph of Shepreth, who already held the Pedevolt land. (fn. 139) In 1323 he held a manor in Meldreth of Argentines as one knight's fee. (fn. 140) At his death in 1332 Ralph held c. 40 a. there of Argentines, and 22 a. of Ely priory. (fn. 141) The land descended with his Shepreth and Malton manors to his son Richard and Richard's son John. John died a minor in 1348. William de la March, who held the Meldreth fee in 1346, was probably his guardian. John's uncle Thomas held the estates for life, but c. 1350 they were divided between John's three sisters, the Meldreth portion going to Elizabeth, wife of Edmund Flambard. (fn. 142) Elizabeth Flambard was succeeded in 1394 by her daughter Eleanor, wife of Walter Tyrell. (fn. 143) By 1428 Flambards was presumably held with Shepreth and Malton by their younger son Edward, and with them was devised to his nephew Thomas Tyrell.
