Canonhold Manor Melksham
"At the death of his uncle in 1754 John Awdry was almost certainly a minor; a long period of litigation followed since his title was apparently disputed but possibly by 1760 and certainly by 1762 an agreement was reached. Under a lease of that year Canonhold passed to Thomas Goddard in trust for John Awdry. Thomas Goddard was possibly a brother of Ambrose Goddard of Swindon whose daughter Priscilla married John Awdry in 1765. The trust was confirmed in 1768; in 1777 the manor was sub-leased to Ambrose Goddard, possibly John Awdry's brother-in-law; ten years later John Awdry asked Goddard to mortgage the manor to James Sutton (of New Park in Bishop's Cannings, q.v.). In 1802 Goddard had presumably redeemed the mortgage since a lease of that year shows him holding the manor with remainders to John Awdry & John's half-brother Jeremiah."

John purchased Notton House from Edward Montagu of Lackham in 1766

John was aged 70 at his death.
