Nether Hall

near Thurston, Suffolk - Greene family


"The familyof Drury, who dated from the reign of William the Conqueror, is the first whose name occurs in connection with the manor of Thurston. As there was never more than one manor in this parish, it was equivalent to that which afterwards became the manor of Nether Hall.

The Ashfields, who were originally of Stowlangtoft, appear to have been the first to have settled at Nether Hall in the reign of King Henry the Seventh, although it is possible that the house existed previously. George Ashfield married Margaret, daughter of John Cheke, of Debenham, and died in the ninth year of Henry the Eighth. A descendant was advanced to the dignity of Baronet, however the Baronetcy became extinct in 1727.

More than a century previous to this date, Nether Hall passed into the possession of the Bright family, who held it for several generations. After the extinction of that family branch, the estate passed into the hands of the Tyrells, Baronets, who soon sold it to George Chinnery, from whose widow it passed into the hands of his nephew, the Rev. W. Bassett. From his family it was resold to Edward Greene, MP for Bury St Edmunds."
