      Note: Received Lyford Grange from his father. It was moated and turreted, containing many concealed chambers fit for refuge of Catholic priests; Vistation of Berkshire, 1566. Thomas founded the family of Yate of Lyford. He was succeeded by a son and heir Francis, who died in possession in 1588. His son Thomas succeeded him and had a (grand) son John, who was in possession of the estates in 1665 and died in 1671. Charles son of John was the next owner; he died in 1696, and seems to have left co-heiresses. Winifred Yate, spinster, released the manor in 1713 to William Dunn and his wife Mary, a daughter of Charles. William Dunn died in 1745 and was succeeded by Charles Dunn, probably his son. (A History of the County of Berkshire, vol. 4, pp. 285-294).

      In 1501 it (Drayton Estate) was conveyed to John Yate of Charney Basset (Berks.), and remained with his family during the 16th century. This estate was not treated as a separate manor in later records, but as part of Dorchester manor held in free socage. In 1530 John Yate settled his Drayton estate on his wife Alice and younger son Thomas. Thomas (d. 1565) was the founder of the Yate family of Lyford (Berks.). In the mid-16th century he was one of the most substantial tenants in Drayton, paying 60s. 6d. rent for his land held of Dorchester manor; at his death in 1565 he held 4 yardlands copyhold as well as about 200 acres, 9 yardlands called Drayton Farm, freehold, which was leased to Richard Pawling of Drayton.

      Thomas Yate's son Francis succeeded him and seems to have lived in Drayton. By 1597, however, Francis's son Thomas had sold the farm to a Robert Doyley of Hambleden (Bucks.) and George Lazenby of Drayton.
