  The second estate belonged by 1608 to Sir Garrett Kempe, lord of Slindon manor, and though never a manor was the later Bilsham Manor farm west of Bilsham Road. Garrett and Anthony Kempe were dealing with Bilsham farm, so called, in 1664, and the same or another Anthony Kempe in 1685. Thereafter it evidently descended with Slindon until in 1908 it was sold to the tenant John C. Loveys (d. 1931). The farm comprised c. 190 a. in 1819, 216 a. c. 1840, and 381 a. c. 1910.
