Administrative/Biographical history:

The Manor of Sunbury originated in a grant of land from King Edgar to his relative Earl Aelfheath, in 692. It was purchased from Aelfheath by St Dunstan, who gave it to Westminster Abbey. In 1222 it was transferred to the Bishop of London and remained in their control until 1559 when it passed to the Crown. It was leased by the Crown to Nicasius Yetswiert and was later leased to his widow.

In 1603 the Crown granted the manor to Robert Stratford, who conveyed it to Thomas Lake. Lake's son Lancelot sold it to George Bunyan in 1663. By 1674 it was held by Francis Phelips and then by his three daughters, one of whom was married to Sir John Tyrwhitt. Tyrwhitt is recorded as sole lord in 1693, but sold the manor to Isaac Guiquet St Eloy in 1698.

The manor was sold to Sir Roger Hudson in 1718, and was then held by his daughter Martha, married to Edmund Boehm. The Boehm family were lords until 1820. It changed hands several times between 1820 and 1909. In 1925 the manor virtually lapsed and the exact ownership was unknown in 1957.
