On 23 July, 1482, William abbot of Welbeckwrote to Bishop Redman to tell him of thedeath of John Lynn alias Clerk, abbot of Dereham, in which he pleaded the poverty of hisdaughter-house of Dereham as a reason forpressing on with the new election with allpossible speed, and asking that on this occasiononly he might proceed without delay in orderinga new election, and in admitting and installingthe abbot elect. (fn. 28)  Accordingly at the next visitation in August, 1482, the election of William Maxey as abbot took place in the bishop’spresence.

At this time he ordered that silence was to bebetter observed. Nineteen canons, including theabbot and prior, were present on this occasion. (fn. 29)

The bishop’s next visit was on 22 June, 1486,when he arrived at West Dereham at suppertime. The house was formally visited on themorrow, and he tarried there quietly over24 June for the solemn observance of the feastof St. John Baptist, supping at Walsingham onthe 25th. (fn. 30)

At a visitation just two years later, JohnMartyn, abbot, William Maxey, the late abbot,eleven other priests, and three deacons werepresent. The visitor reported that the abbotwas provident and circumspect; that the debtof £200 at the time of his election had beenreduced to £100; and that there was a goodsupply of stores and cattle.

George Lytylport, priest, was found in prisonfor theft and other sins; he was penitent, butordered to remain in prison until next generalchapter. (fn. 31)

The next visitation was on 22 September,1491, when John Wysbech, abbot, WilliamMaxey, late abbot, nine other canons, and anovice were present. The novice, WilliamFaryeley, had struck a brother and flung him into the grate; the visitor ordered him forty days of bread and water, and then to be sent to Halesowen; but at the unanimous prayer of the abbot and convent the last part of the sentence was revoked. (fn. 32)

In 1487 another long association started when the widow of John Maxey bought the Hall. Morant relates the details of six generations of Maxeys between the reigns of Henry VII and Charles II, when the last Maxey, Anthony, sold the property. It was the Maxeys who built the present house in its basic form: a plastered timber building – as it still remains around the courtyard on the north side – probably about 1570.

1487 – 1665
In 1487 another long association started when the widow of   John Maxey bought the Hall. Morant relates the details of six generations of   Maxeys between the reigns of Henry VII and Charles II, when the last Maxey,   Anthony, sold the property. It was the Maxeys who built the present house in   its basic form: a plastered timber building – as it still remains around the   courtyard on the north side – probably about 1570.1665 – 1717The buyer in 1665 was Martin Carter, a lawyer from nearby   Shalford. His son, also Martin and also a lawyer (of Christ’s College,   Cambridge, and Lincoln’s Inn) was described by Morant as ‘an accomplished   gentleman, and of singular learning’. He made ‘great alterations and   improvements to the house and gardens’ in 1698, the date engraved on the   bricks of the Walled Garden, and to the house the following year (as recorded   on the east gable end). He faced the south, east and west fronts with red and   blue bricks in a lively pattern which, together with the leaded window-panes,   gives great animation even to the undecorated west front.Carter was of a conservative bent, it seems. The Dutch gables with which he   ornamented and formalised his new facade are the latest example of their kind   in the county by as much as twenty years.

1482.

By the death of Abbot John Lyn, alias Clerk, of West Dere ham, there is need of an élection for a new superior. As abbot of Welbeck he should hold it, being the father abbot ‘; he is not able to go títere, and begs the bishop to preside at the election.

Bishop Redman finds the abbot, John Lyn, dead, and a canon of the house, John Maxsey, is now elected in his place. He orders him to pay to each canon the usual 20«. a year for clothes: appoints a prior and subprior, and enjoins the better keeping of silence.

Bishop Redman praises the administration of the abbot. He directs that no one go out of the enclosure without permission. All are to rise for matins. No one is to seek favours, Ac, through secular influence, or to speak to outsiders of the concerns of the monastery. Dogs are not to be kept except where the superior allows. One canon is convicted of theft and punished.
