      ....Although he inherited Batailles and other estates in Surrey from his father, William later acquired other properties outside the county. He bought the Manor of Cardens with lands in the villages of Cliff, Higham, Cooling and Frindsbury in North Kent. This manor had belonged to the Charterhouse and after the suppression of the monastery the manor was granted to Thomas Gittons,
      Citizen and Vintner of London, who was at once granted a licence to alienate the manor to Sir Oliver Ledder. Thomas Gittons died in 1543; his will mentioned his wife Joan, five children and brother David. William married as his second wife the widow of Thomas Gittons, once owner of Cardens.
