A slightly different version appeared from Francis Blomefield, noted antiquarian and clergyman (1705-52)

John Tendring owned Brockdish Hall, but had only five daughters when he died (1436). The daughters jointly sold the Hall the following year to Thomas Fastolfe and his heirs. A year later the sisters conveyed all their lands in Wiggenhall, Tilney and Islington to Sir John Howard, who the following year purchased the manor of Fastolfe for himself and heirs but left Brockdish to his younger son Robert Howard who settled there.
