    Manor of Braunstone, Leicestershire:

    In 1293 the manor was held from Richard Harecurt by Thomas de Camville, but Thomas was probably not then the tenant in demesne, since in 1299 the manor was held from him by Hugh of Braunstone. Members of Hugh's family had been holding land in the parish earlier; Hugh's brother, Master Henry of Braunstone, was holding land at Braunstone in 1297, and Adam son of Ivo, who was holding land in the township in 1225, was probably Master Henry's father. At the end of the 13th century there were thus three lords between the tenant in demesne and the tenant in chief. Hugh of Braunstone was succeeded by his son Henry, who in 1312 granted his lands at Braunstone to William de Herle for life. William's son, Robert de Herle, held considerable property at Braunstone, which was inherited by his nephew Ralph de Hastings, who held the manor in 1388-9, but though his descendants held land in Braunstone they do not appear to have held the manor, nor do those of Henry of Braunstone. By 1364 the manor was in the hands of Thomas de Erdyngton, who was probably the tenant in demesne. Erdyngton had married Margaret, daughter of Thomas Corbet, who had inherited the manor from William, son of Thomas de Camvile. Thomas de Erdyngton's descendants continued to hold the manor from the Harecurts until the last Thomas de Erdyngton, who died without issue in 1467, gave up his rights in the manor to William Harecurt.
