Conveyance to Walter Camerarius for 5s of 2 acres of land in Barndepeham which he received in an exchange with Alexander the Treasurer., 1230 - 1250
The land lies in Wyklonde between land of the said Walter and the road.
Witnesses: Roger le Grey; William son of Peter; Peter Sonke; Henry de Wancy; Robert le Grey; Richard Banastre; William de Sarners.
The manor of Brent Pelham was held by the de Sarneres family from at least 1181, but in the early 13th century passed to the family of Chamberlayn (Camerarius) which (it is surmised) may have been descended from the Sarneres but had acquired a new surname in right of an office held by one of them (see VCH , Herts, IV, 95-6).
