    Nechells/Echelles Manor, Birmingham, Warwickshire:

    The manor of NECHELLS, or ECHELLES, is said to have been granted by Osbert de Parles to his bastard son Reynold, whose son Simon left three daughters. The estate came to Alice, daughter of Agnes, the second daughter; she married Sir George de Castello, and their son William de Castello held Nechells of Roger de Somery in 1291 and of John de Somery in 1323 as 1/32 knight's fee. Alice, as a widow, is said to have conveyed her rights in the manor to Simon Holte in 1330, and he presumably acquired it from her heir, as it continued to descend in the Holte family with Duddeston and Aston, being still held in 1586, by Edward Holte, of the manor of Bordesley as 1/32 knight's fee by a rent of three barbed arrows. There is no evidence that there was ever a manor-house at Nechells.

    From: 'Manors', A History of the County of Warwick: Volume 7: The City of Birmingham (1964), pp. 58-72. URL: http://www.british-history.ac.uk/report.aspx?compid=22962 Date accessed: 17 May 2013.

    NOTE: From another source, George & Alice's son William had issue (at least a grandson), so that was not the reason that the manor went to Simon. It was a small manor, held by the Castello family by right of Alice, so I assume that she gave it to her grandson Simon being a son of her daughter, Alice who had married John Holt, and may have had Nechells as her dowery.
