White Ladies Aston, Worcestorshire:
Land at White Ladies Aston, afterwards known as the manor of ASTON BRULEY (Nether Aston, xvii cent.), was held under the Bishop of Worcester as of his manor of Northwick by the Bruleys from very early times. In the Bishop of Worcester's Domesday (c. 1182), Richard de Bruley is entered as holding a hide at Aston, and Richard 'Brusle' is mentioned in the Pipe Roll of 1175-6. In the early 13th century a descendant of Richard's bearing the same name held a hide at Aston for the service of a fifth part of a knight's fee. Milicent widow of Richard de Bruley sued Henry de Bruley in 1274-5 for not keeping a covenant made between them as to 3 virgates of land at Aston under Oswaldslow. No further mention has been found of this manor until 1346, but it probably passed from Henry Bruley to his son Henry, and from him to his eldest son William. Henry Bruley son of William left a daughter Agnes, who married a cousin William Bruley, and William in 1346 held the land in Aston which Richard Bruley had formerly held. In 1413-14 he and Agnes conveyed a toft and 2 virgates of land in Aston Bishop to John Lynton and John Bertelmewe. William and Agnes Bruley had a son John, whose daughter and heir Joan married John Danvers of Ipswell and Calthorpe, co. Oxon. John Danvers died about 1448, and Thomas, the eldest son of John and Joan Danvers, died in 1502 without issue, being succeeded by his brother Sir William Danvers. The manor passed in 1504 from Sir William to his son John, who died in 1508, leaving an infant son John.
