Administrative/Biographical history:

The Manor of Honeylands and Pentriches was situated near Enfield. It was named for Ellis of Honeyland who held land in the area in 1275. The manor was also called Capels after the later owner Sir William Capel. The manor passed through several hands before manorial rights were extinguished after 1901.

The manor of Worcesters was formed in 1298 by John of Enfield. The manor was named for the owner in 1470, John, earl of Worcester. In 1550 it was granted to Princess Elizabeth. As queen she granted it to Robert Cecil, although it was later sold and passed through various owners. The house and land were purchased by the Enfield Urban District Council in 1951.
