Ketton Hall, or Kedyton Hall, they acquired with the heiress of the family of Newmarch, which surname it appears they adopted and anciently bore, in conjunction with that of Barnardiston, as exhibited on the monument of Anne, daughter of Sir Thomas Barnardiston, the wife of Sir Hugh Everard, in the church of Great Waltham, Essex.
