PREBENDARIES OF UFTON DECANI

Preb. valued 1535 at £2 13s 4d (Valor III 131).

Valor has Robert Sherwood at one Ufton and 'William -' at the other. The two prebs. of Ufton are very muddled in Le Neve-Hardy and Survey of Cath. The first occasion on which a preb. of Ufton is specified is in 1578 (see Ufton Decani, below), and this occ. provides the principal basis for deductions as to the identity of the early holders.
