In 1200 Roger de Portes?s estate at Bromesberrow was taken in hand by the Crown. It was restored to him soon afterwards and Matthew de Portes was lord of Bromesberrow later.The manor passed to Richard de Portes, a minor and the ward of Richard du Boys in the 1280s. Richard de Portes, who came of age by 1291,21 was lord of Bromesberrow in 1316 and had a house in the parish in 1323.23 William de Whitefield, who was granted free warren in the demesne in 1320,24 had died by 1349 and his widow Constance (fl. 1367), who later married Stephen de Casynton, retained a life interest in the manor, although by 1367 it belonged to John Bromwich.25 John died in 138826 an d his widow Catherine, who later married in turn Hugh de Waterton (d. 1409)27 and Roger Leech, retained the manor. On her death in 1420 it passed to John?s nephew Thomas Bromwich28 and another John Bromwich presented to the rectory in 1447.
A second Thomas Bromwich held his first manor court in 1467 and in 1473 William Botte, vicar of Norton (Herefs.), held the court, presumably as a guardian. In 1476 the manor belonged to John Bromwich (d. 1485) and his wife Maud, whose son and heir John held his first manor court in 1487.
On John?s death in 1512 his widow Ann or Agnes (née Payne) retained the manor31 and c.1514 she married William Whittington, son of John Whittington of Pauntley.
