    The manor of Layer de la Haye, Essex, next belonged to Sir Robert Tey, who may have inherited it through his wife Anne, widow of a John Nanton, or through an ancestress, Emma, who was also a Nanton, but strangely enough used the De la Haye coat of arms.  
    The Teys were a family of considerable standing locally.  By a series of advantageous marriages during the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries they had acquired large estates in Aldham, Birch, Copford, Peldon, Layer and the three villages to which they gave their name.  
    In 1426 Sir Robert Tey was succeeded first by his grandson and then in 1441 by his great grandson, both named John.
    Had two sons, John and Thomas, the latter settled at Layer de la Haye. John Tey esq, the eldest son, is said in the genealogy to have settled at Brightwell Hall, Suffolk.
    ?Brightwell Manor was owned by the Lampet family, and later by the Curson family.
    William Curson died in 1485, and his daughter Elizabeth, married to Sir Thomas Teye, Knt., of Ardley, Essex, succeeded. At her death the manor passed to her eldest daughter and co-heir, Margaret, married to Sir John Jermy, Knt., of Metfield. He died in 1560, and the manor passed in the same course as the manor of Metfield, until the death of Sir Thomas Jermy, K.B.
    About the middle of the 17th century the manor was sold by the Jermy family to Sir William Hewitt, Knt.?
