It seems likely that the parish of Caverswall had been divided into two separate manors since its formation. The manor of Caverswall and the manor of Weston Coyney which included Hulme and Werrington.
The Lordship of the Manor of Weston Coyney had been held by the Coyney family since the 13th Century. When Edward Coyney died in 1772 he was survived by his wife and his only child, a daughter Mary. In his will Edward had placed his estates in trust for his young daughter.
