Change Date: 17 MAR 2009
William Catesby sold the manor of Headington to John Brome, Lord of the Manor of nearby Holton, in 1482.
William Catesby, in 1482 granted Northgate Hundred, Oxford, to Robert Brome of Holton in exchange for other property. Robert's great-great grandson, George Brome, sold the hundred to the city in 1592.
Robert?s cousin Nicholas Brome (1440-1516) of Baddesley Clinton (qv) married Lettice, dau of Nicholas Catesby. [Presumably son of the Robert of 1482?]
William Brome of Holton was lord in 1454 and 1457; in 1469 the manor of Shipton-on-Cherwell was settled on Agnes and her second husband Geoffrey Gate and Agnes's heirs. Robert Brome, presumably Alice's [Agnes?s?] son, died seised of the manor in 1486 and was succeeded by his son Christopher who died before 1510.
This seems to be in error (I have corrected it in brackets):
Robert Brome died seized of the Manor of Headington in 1486.
Sir John Brome, [his son Christopher?s son] Robert's son and heir, seems to have been the [next] Lord of the Manors of Headington and Holton [from 1485]. He was Sheriff of Oxfordshire in 1553 and died in 1558.
