The manor of Allerton Mauleverer in Yorkshire was granted to King's College not long after the Foundation by Henry VI. The College later fell into dispute with local landowner Thomas Mauleverer over his rival claim to the land, and eventually sold the manor to him in 1544, using the money to purchase Barton in Cambridgeshire. c. 1525.
Letters Patent of King Henry VI allowing King's College to ignore the effects of the Resumption (6 Nov 1449) on their grant of reversions by the prior of Allerton Mauleverer after Robert Osbern's death (31 Jul 1441) thereby allowing the College to retain any profits accrued in the intervening period. The Great Seal of Henry VI is attached. 3 Nov 1458.
