'Creeting Apud Montem al Derebolt's' was a sub-manor of Stonam Earl. In 16th century was owned by Sir Philip Bothe, in 1535 by Sir Andrew Windsor, in late 16th century by Thomas Goodall (annexed to main manor) and by 1837 by Nicholas Hankey Smith. Thomas Driver of Deerbolts Hall was High Sheriff of Suffolk in 1726 (S2).
The existing Deerbolts Hall to the S is early 18th century (a replacement of the earlier sub-manor moated site?).
