(fn. 183) In 1540 all its lands passed by exchange from the Crown to Thomas Howard, duke of Norfolk, (fn. 184) between whose attainder in 1547 and restoration in 1553 the rectory was possessed by royal lessees. (fn. 185) In 1566 it belonged to his grandson and heir, Duke Thomas, (fn. 186) and after Thomas's execution in 1572 to his eldest son Philip, earl of Arundel, with William Dix, probably again returning to the Crown upon Philip's forfeiture in 1589. (fn. 187) In 1606 James I granted the rectory to Philip's younger brother Thomas, earl of Suffolk, (fn. 188) who in 1608 sold it to Edmund Mileson of Bury St. Edmunds (Suff.). Mileson died in 1623 leaving it to his son Borrowdale Mileson (fn. 189) (d. 1678). By 1676 Borrowdale had sold it to Thomas Edgar, who had married his daughter Agatha and died in 1677. Edgar's son and heir Mileson Edgar (fn. 190) died in 1713, having just sold a third of the rectory to his uncle Devereux Edgar's son Robert. (fn. 191) About 1733 Robert sold the rectory to Christopher Jeaffreson, (fn. 192) with whose Dullingham estate it descended thereafter.
