The map above shows Knotting in 1646 in an estate map of the Manor of Knotting in the archives of Bedford Estates. It dates from 1646 and was probably made for Lewis Wright who bought the manor from Edmund Waller in 1644. The map would have been passed onto the Duke of Bedford on purchasing the manor in 1774. The surveyor was Seth Partridge.
