The first evidence relating to the de Holbrook family belongs to the reign of Henry Ill (1216-72) and in a list of knights who followed Henry III in war occurs the name of "Sir -- de Holbrook" His Christian name is not given, though his coat of arms is described. This may or may not be Sir Richard de Holbrook; who certainly held Holbrook and some other places in the last years of Henry III's reign. In 1288 a trial was held at Westminster to settle disputes between Richard and the Prior of Norwich. He died in 1290, and Manor passed to his son John, who is chiefly important as being the first patron of the living (1304). Soon after this date he died, and the Manor was held by his widow, Alice, who died in 1309 with the Church and Manor of Holbrook in her possession. John, son of John and Alice, was at this time twenty years old, but he died only seven years later (1316), leaving a son, Thomas.
In 1262 the manor of Colviles was held by Ernald de Colvile and Joan his wife, and was acquired with the advowson from them or rather from Ernald de Colevile alone, by Richard, son of William de
Holbeck, in 1260 [Feet of Fines, 44 Hen. III. 91]. It was also held by Richard de Holbroke, who died in 1290, when the manor vested in Sir John de Holbroke, and in 1304 he presented to the living, which was at that time and indeed until the time of Jas. I. appendant to this manor.
