"Wiverton Hall, formerly a fortified place, with a demesne of 1,002 acres of fine grazing and arable land, forms an extra parochial liberty, bounded on the east by the River Smite, and on the west by Tithby parish, and distant 2½ miles south of Bingham.
After the Conquest, Wiverton, or as it is commonly called Werton, was of several fees, and gave name to a resident family who became its principal owners, and gave part of it to Welbeck and Thurgarton monasteries. The whole manor subsequently passed to the Bassets, Brets and Caltofts. The heiress of the latter carried it in marriage to Sir Wm. Chaworth, in the reign of Edward III, previous to which, Thoroton says, it had become utterly depopulated, though under the date 1257 he found "many mentions in the ledger book of Thurgarton Priory, of the church of Wiverton", but he never could discover any other document to show there ever was a church here, except what referred to the domestic chapel in the house, which was there in ruins."
