Thame and Siddenham  -  Jean Yates

Dunstable had £16 a year as rent for lands in Siddenham that Paulinus Peysvre owned, in exchange for Paulinus renting the manor of Hare from the Prior. Paulinus was from Toddington, and the Siddenham lands were rented to the Abbot of Thame.

The Charters mention the arrangements on three occasions between 1244 and 1276.
