Warden Manor

The Victoria County History lists a fifth manor in Old Warden which it names as Warden Manor, but the information given in the VCH is inaccurate. It suggests that the manor originated in a grant to Warden Abbey of Ravenesholt Wood, but this wood is in fact in Cambridgeshire, not in Old Warden. No documents are recorded for “Warden Manor” in the National Archives’ manorial documents register, and we are not aware of any evidence that this supposed manor ever existed.
