Name: Simon de BRULEY , of Coughton, Sir 1
Birth: ABT 1201 in Aston Bruley Manor, White Ladies Aston, Worcestershire, England
Death: BET 1261 AND 1262 in Bruly Manor, Coughton, Alcester, Warwickshire, England 1
Manor of Coughton, Warwickshire:
The service of ½ knight due to the Earl of Warwick from the 4 hides in Coughton appears, however, to have devolved upon the 2 hides held by the Kinwarton branch of the family (see below). Ranulf of Kinwarton had a son Robert who predeceased him, having settled ? of 2 hides in Coughton on his wife Joan. In 1199 Joan and her next husband Richard de Brusle leased this land to Ranulf, Joan's former father-in-law, for his life. Ranulf was presumably dead by 1214, when Alexander, another of his sons, was sued for breaking the terms of this fine. Alexander de Kinwarton about 1241 gave to the Abbot of Alcester a place to build a piggery in his wood of Coughton and also a load of firewood, weekly, from that same wood, but in 1242-3 Simon de Bruly was holding ½ knight's fee in Coughton. Simon was living in 1261, but was dead in 1262, when Agnes his wife and Robert his son were holding land in Coughton. In 1268 Robert was returned as holding the ½ fee in Coughton. He was Regarder of Feckenham Forest in 1271. In 1289 his hedges at Coughton were broken and his crops were depastured by Roger de Spineto of Coughton, Richard de Verdon of Wyke, and 12 others, on land where they claimed, wrongfully, to have common of pasture. In 1292 Robert de Bruly is reported to be holding £20 a year in land in chief though still unknighted, but he must have died soon after, for about this time Simon son of Robert de Broylly sold his manor of Coughton with all his rights and liberties there to William of Louth, Bishop of Ely. After the bishop's death this manor passed to Sir William Touchet, who immediately, in September 1298, granted it, with all the property formerly of Simon Broyli, to William de Spineto, after which the two parts of the Coughton fee were reunited.
