Eye

Following the Norman Conquest, Sir William Malet de Graville was granted the Honour of Eye, which consisted of 227 manors in Suffolk. His seat was in the town of Eye and he built a castle there. When William died, his son Robert inherited his father's lands, including Eye. Robert started a market there making it one of the oldest market towns in England, and he also founded a small monastery, linked to a religious order in Normandy.
