Fen Drayton (Draitone)

 

The Pollard fee derives partly from 3 yardlands held in demesne by Ramsey Abbey in 1066 and 1086 which were later granted to its vassals, the Moynes of Barnwell St Andrew  (Northants).

About 1280 Berenger le Moyne released his mesne lordship to Ramsey Abbey.  In 1279 William Pollard held the 3 yardlands under the Moynes of the abbey, and paid the priory 12s - 4d a year, still due at the Dissolution.
