Bolham [status: a] in Tiverton parish and Tiverton hundred (EPNS, p541). It appears in DB as Boleham, held by William the Usher (DB 51,8). In 1284 it was held for a quarter of a fee by Hugh Raleigh of the honor of Dunster, the overlordship having passed to the Mohun family (FA i p319). It descended in the Raleigh family until the famous Sir Walter Raleigh sold it in 1596/7 to George Prowse and Richard Hagley (OJR, Supp, p29). Lysons does not mention it in 1822. Unknown if this is the same Prowse, but it is in the same place and time.
