It has not been possible to connect the Domesday tenant (of Carlton or Pabenham?s manor, Carlton, Beds), Herbert son of Ivo, with the family of de Pabenham, who took their name from the adjoining parish of Pabenham or Pavenham, and who appear to have held in Carlton certainly from the 13th century onwards. The Testa states that John de Pabenham held land in Carlton by one-fifth of a knight's fee, whilst an inquisition taken regarding the property of one of the same name in 1269 describes his land in Carlton as a messuage, 41?2 virgates of land, 6 acres of meadow and 12 acres of wood, which is almost identical in extent with Herbert son of Ivo's property at Domesday. (fn. 7)
From this time onwards until 1348 Carlton remained in the Pabenham family and followed the same descent as Pavenham Manor. In 1278?9 the estate included 5 virgates, of which 31?2 were in demesne, (fn. 8) and in 1300, called for the first time a manor, Carlton was granted by John de Pabenham to his daughter Athelina for her life, and was then extended at a capital messuage worth 3s., 80 acres of arable land, 6 acres of meadow, rents of freemen worth 6s. 6d., and 11?4 virgates of land in villeinage.
In 1348?9, on the death of John de Pabenham, his brother James as heir entered into possession of the Carlton property, described as a messuage and a carucate of land, a very usual extent in round numbers for a manor in this county. (fn. 10) He died in 1360, when his daughter Margery became his heir.
John de Pabenham (d.1331) married Joan Clifford after the death of his first wife in 1313, so the date of the Hours is probably c. 1314-15 and not c. 1308.
