Early records indicate that the land at Holywells was part of the Manor at Bishops Wyke which was held by the Bishops of Norwich in the 13th century. During Henry VIII's reign the Manor was returned to the crown and passed hands many times before John Cobold secured the ownership in 1812, the Cobold family had been using the land since1689 to make beer; they used the water from the natural springs and shipped it to Harwich where their brewery was located.

In 1935 the land at Holywells was presented to the people of Ipswich by Lord Woodbridge and then opened to the public in 1936, much of the manor is now lost with only the stable block remainin
