• Background Information. 788
Nether Haddon was, at the time of the Domesday Survey, in pocession of William de Peverel. Later it was held under the Peverls by William de Avenall, who rendered knight's service for it. When the Perverel lands were forfeited by rebellion, William de Avenell became the tenant-in-cheif. Little is known about this family before it came in pocession of Haddon. The family ended with the death of William de Avenell. He left two daughters as coheirs. One daughter married Richard de Vernon and the other Simon Bassett. The share given to the Vernon's contained the manor house, which Richard de Vernon had a licence to fority it with a twelve foot high wall. Haddon continued for several generations to be the principal residence of the Vernon family.
