  Research Notes:

SIR WALTER DE BROMPTON...succeeded his father, Sir Brian. A Charter of his, wherein he styles himself "Walter de Bromton, Knight, Lord of Bocton," bears date at Ludlow, in 16 Edw. I (i.e. between November, 1287, and November, 1288).

In the following year (17 Edw. I), Walter de Bromton and John de Bromton, Knights, together with Richard de la Bane, acknowledge their joint obligation to repay 40s. of the money received on loan from Laurence de Ludlowe, on the 1st of August, 1289, at his House in Ludlowe. We learn from another Deed that Sara, widow of Sir Brian de Bromton, released to Sir Walter de Bromton, all claim of dower in Bromton, Stanage, Stowe, Weston, Ayeston (Aston, Herefordshire), and Idesberie so that she might have Kinlett, and a tenement in the New Park at Knowle, and a Salt-rent at Wich, for her dower. We know from an Inquisition of a much later date that Sara, widow of Brian de Brompton, retained Kinlet till her death.

Sir Walter de Brompton seems to have died between the years 1289 and 1292. 2

  Marriage Information:

Walter married Lady Joan DE EWILLEY. (Lady Joan DE EWILLEY was born est 1245.)
