He married 1st Margery, sister of Sir Philip Tilney, and 2ndly Margaret, daughter of Richard Fitz-Williams, and on his death the manor passed to his son and heir, John Cheke, who married 1st Cecilia, daughter of John Southwell, of Barham Hall, and 2ndly Margaret, daugher of Thomas Fastolf, of Pettaugh. To him suceeded his son and heir, John Cheke, who married Anne, daughter of Thomas Fastolf. and sister of Margaret, his father's 2nd wife, and the manor descended to their son and heir, a 3rd John Cheke in succession.

The manor subsequently passed to John Bretton, and on his death in 1636 to his grandson, John Bretton, of Hadleigh. It later vested in Laurence Bretton, rector of Hitcham, who gave it by will to Foster Goodday. Foster Goodday, of Kettlebaston, married Sarah, daughter of --- Breton, of Hadleigh, and George Goodday, his brother married Margaret Breton

In 1847 this manor belonged to Charles Chevallier of Aspal Hall. Later it was sold to the Norris family who resided at "Gostling's Hall," now called "Debenham Hall," for many years.
