Apparently I should have said just North Ockendon. The estates passed
to Sir James, but per Thomas' will North Ockendon only passed either
for life, or if their were heirs. When Sir James d in 1723, North
Ockendon then passed to Elizabeth (Littleton) Meynell.

When she died in 1726, to her son Littleton Poyntz Meynell and then
upon *his* death to his second son (but heir by will) Hugo who sold
North Ockendon in 1758
