    Sir Edward Dalyngrigge built Bodiam Castle after coming into the possession of the manor in 1378 after marrying Elizabeth Wardeaux. He came from an old established Sussex family who came from the present day Dalling Ridge, near East Grinstead.
    Died 1395 and was succeeded by his son Sir John.
    Mayor of London 1392, but dismissed for his leniency(?)
    Roger, probably John's eldest son, substantially added to the family lands by marrying Alice Radingden, another co-heiress; by this match he acquired the manor of Sheffield in Fletching -- now better known as Sheffield Park (NT) -- and four other manors. On Roger's death without issue in 1380 these estates passed to his brother, Edward. Edward, in the meantime, had already added to the family's possessions by marriage. In 1364 his father had contracted an alliance between him and Elizabeth, daughter and heiress of Sir John Wardieu of Bodiam. Wardieu died in 1377, and Edward then entered into his wife's inheritance. This was an ample one, consisting of the manors of Bodiam and Hollington in Sussex, a number of properties in Kent, and the manors of Sywell, Hannington and Arthing-worth in Northamptonshire.
    Dallingridge quickly sold off the outlying midland manors and made his principal residence at Bodiam. In later years he bought up a number of other properties in Sussex, and by the time of his death in 1393 he was one of the richest landowners in the county.
