    V. HENRY II. The date of his accession to his father's estates is uncertain. It certainly occurred before 1199. He confirmed his father's grant to Sempringham the witnesses being Hugh f. Nicholas (de Culland?) and Hugh the grantor's brother (Rut. MSS. 54). A Henry de Brailsford occurs in 1188 among the witnesses of a grant by Serlo de Grendon. (J. 396). In 1216 he and Robert de Vernon were with earl Ferrars in the king's service and were especially protected from any molestation by the king's writ. (R. Lit. Claus. 17 John). Early in the thirteenth century William, earl Ferrars; Reginald de Karliolo, dapifer; Henry de Brailsford; William de Grendon; Nicholas de Cavelonde and others witnessed the agreement made between B(artholornew), prior of Tutbury, and Hugh de Okeover with respect to the latter's grant of Snelston to his brother Geoffrey. (C. Tut. cccv J. 2125). Henry's association with the Grendons arose from his marriage with Isolda, one of the three daughters and co-heirs of Serlo de Grendon. (H.B. 94). It is possible that after Henry's death his widow was re-married to Elias de Jorz, for, in 1259, Elias de Jorz and Isolda, his wife, granted to Ralph Bugge 31/2 bovates in Woodthorpe. (D.F. 1259). In 1235-6 Henry de Brailsford granted certain lands to Mary, widow of Ralph de Brailsford, of whom I know nothing. (F.H.D. I. 449). Henry appears as a witness to various deeds. (J. 135, 1351, 1520) and died about 1242-3. He left four sons; Henry, his heir; (A) Engenulf; (B.) William, Roger and Serlo. He had also a daughter Hawise (C.).

    (A.) Engenulf married Hawise f. Robert de Duin. (H.B. 94), and dowered her with land in Bradley, part of his mother's inheritance I presume. Hawise appears to have been thrice married, for after 1233 she was the wife of Walter de Stretton, and about 1258 was re-married to Alexander de Ramsey. After the death of Serlo f. Serlo de Grendon, Engenulf f. Henry de Brailsford confirmed to Dale the gift which William de Grendon and Serlo his brother, Engenulf's uncles, had made of land in Ockbrook. (C. Dale 15). About 1232 Engeluf de Brailsford attested a grant by William f. William le Burgulun to Thornas de Curzon. (J. 1503). He also witnessed a charter of Nicholas, prior of Tutbury, with Sir Robert de Ashbourne, seneschal of earl Ferrars, Nicholas de Caveland and Adam his brother. (F.H.D. IV, 159; J. 2718). He appears to have had a son of the same name as, before 1259, Richard f. Hervey de Stretton remitted to Engenulf all his rights in the advowson of Dronfield Church. This grant was witnessed by Matthew de Haversegg; Leodegar de Dive; Robert de Duin and others. (H.B. 93). Pegge states that Engenulf was the brother of the existing rector. An entry in the Tutbury chartulary supports this as Sir Henry f. Engelard de Brailsford remitted to the priory all his claims in the vill of Osmaston, except the patronage of the Chapel there which pertained to the mother church of Brailsford. (C. Tut. cc). Henry de Brailsford and Engyllard de Brailsford both attested the grant of Roger de Bradley to King's Mead about 1296. (J. 1520).

    (B.) William. The chief authority for giving William, Serlo and Roger as sons of Henry is the statement in the History of Beauchief (94), where it is also said that Roger was rector of Dronfield. (I.P.M. VI). Alexander de Curtlinge granted to Roger f. Roger de Brailsford a messuage in Hatton. (J. 1361). In 1263 a Robert brother of Henry de Brailsford is mentioned in the Pipe Roll. (Y. 46 Hen. III).

    (C.) Hawise the daughter was married to Gerard de Fanecurt who, in 1242-3, held half a fee of a knight in Wingerworth. (B.F. 995).
