    RANES or RAANS MANOR (Rana), in Amersham, originated in land held in 1166 of Geoffrey second Earl of Essex, and afterwards of his descendants as lords of the principal manor. In 1625 the overlordship was vested in Francis Lord Russell as lord of Amersham Manor, and in recognition of this claim a quit-rent of 20s. was paid to the lord of Amersham Manor in 1735. The under-tenant in 1166 was Jordan de Rane, who was succeeded before the end of the century by John de Rane, who may be identical with the John holding in 1236. The name of Walter de Rane occurs in 1273 and again in 1284, and in 1293 he settled lands in Amersham on his sons John and Walter. Walter the son was evidently in possession in 1308 and was alive in 1335.
    Another Walter de Rane is mentioned in 1372, and he had a daughter and heir Alice, who married Thomas Grove.
