Administrative/Biographical history:

Flambards manor was held as a sub-manor from Rectory Manor, Harrow. The core of the Flambards estate consisted of free and copyhold land held from both Harrow and Rectory manor, on either side of the border between Harrow-on-the-Hill and Sudbury. William Gerard was living at the manor as a tenant from 1566, and in 1573 the property was conveyed to him in fee farm by John Spilman. Gerard and his descendants paid Spilman and his descendants an annual rent of 30. In 1656 John Spilman sold the fee-farm rent to John Bernard and Daniel Waldo. Elizabeth, daughter of Charles Gerard, was married to Warwick Lake and then Miles Stapledon. In 1767 members of the Lake and Stapledon families sold Flambards to Francis Herne. It then passed to the Page and Hoare families, and later the Northwick, Macgregor and Phelps families.
