    Manor of Withybrook, Warwickshire:

    Nicholas son of Liulf, who contributed (as Nicholas de Withibroc) in 1209-10 to the sum required by his overlord William de Mowbray to reclaim his inheritance against William de Stuteville, probably held the manor, as he laid claim to the advowson of the church in 1205. His son Nicholas of Coventry gave an undertaking not to raise his mill-pond above its former level in 1229, and with his freeholders came to an agreement with the convent of Combe about common of pasture in 1240. William de Castell, perhaps Nicholas's son-in-law, as he held his land in right of his wife Joan, was the next lord anda benefactor to Combe Abbey. His grandson William in 1284-5 paid 40s. for confirmation of his right to view of frankpledge and assize of bread and ale in Withybrook. Alice, widow of his son George, held the lordship in 1316, presumably in dower, as George left a son William. He was probably dead by 1332 when Maud de Castell (? his widow) was the chief taxpayer in Withybrook. William's grandson George was in 1373 excused jury service and appointment as sheriff, escheator, or other Crown official, but was made a collector of the poll tax in 1377 and escheator for Warwickshire and Leicestershire in 1381 and 1384, knight of the shire in 1386, and sheriff the following year. A Robert de Castell held similar offices and was also steward of the manor of Cheylesmore in 1422. The manor seems to have been the subject of a settlement by George de Castell, for in 1407 it had been bought by William Botener of Coventry, a member of a family that supplied several mayors of that city and contributed largely to the rebuilding of St. Michael's Church, from Thomas Compworth and Elizabeth his wife; the warranty being against the heirs of Elizabeth suggests that she was a de Castell.

    NOTE: When the above text states that William was a grandson in 1284-5, I assume that William was a grandson of Nicholas of Coventry
