Ebbingford Manor is mentioned in the pipe roll for 1194-5 and passed to the
Arundells of Trerice in 1433. Carew mentions the house as "a pleasant-seated
house and domains". The house was eventually inherited by the Aclands in 1802
although they never lived at the house which was tenanted in part by Colonel Wrey
I'ans whose daughter, Charlotte, married the Rev. R S Hawker of Morwenstow (q.v.
The Vicarage, Morwenstow). The house was used as Bude Vicarage between 1761 and
1953 when Sir Dudley Stamp and Canon Walter Prest swooped their Bude houses. B
