Mannock, Francis -1687)

Gifford Hall in Stoke-by- Nayland, Suffolk, belonged to the Giffords, and was then purchased by the Mannocks during the early sixteenth century. The Mannocks are believed to have originated in Denmark. Refusing to conform to the Church of England, the Mannocks were sequestrated eight times between 1596 and 1658. In 1627 Francis Mannock was created a baronet in recognition of the force of troops he raised for Charles I. There were eight further baronets after Francis Mannock, including the second baronet, also named Francis, whose stamp is probably represented here. The title became extinct on the death of the ninth baronet in 1787.
