Sir John Culpeper7a held Oxen Hoath during the reign of Henry IV. He is buried, with his wife Katherine, in West Peckham Church. He was succeeded by his son, Sir William8a, who was Sheriff of Kent in 1426. Sir John and Katherine had two other sons: John Culpeper8a of Oxnode [probably a variation of Oxen Hoath] and Peter Culpeper8a who held lands at Headcorn, including Bletchenden. Sir William Culpeper8a had three sons: Richard Culpeper9a of Oxen Hoath who was Sheriff in 1484, William Culpeper9a of Preston Hall, and Geoffrey Culpeper9a. Sir Richard had no sons, and at his death in 1484, Oxen Hoath Manor passed to Richard's three daughters: (1) Margaret Culpeper, wife of William Cotton of Oxen Hoath; (2) Joyce Culpeper, wife of Edmund Lord Howard (one of their daughters was Catherine Howard, fifth wife of Henry VIII); and (3) Elizabeth Culpeper, wife of Henry Barham, Esq. Upon division of the inheritance, Oxen Hoath was allotted to William Cotton, in right of his wife Margaret Culpeper. (Hasted's Kent, Vol. V, pp. 63-64)

As of 2000, Oxen Hoath is being run as a retreat center. For more information, see the Oxen Hoath.
