    The following indenture, dated 1st of April, 1480, that is seventeen years after the foundation of the Bradbourne chantry at Hulland, contains so many particulars relative to it, that we make no excuse for reproducing it in extenso :-

    * Margery was the daughter of Sir John Bagot of Blithefield, Staffordshire
    + Isabel, the second daughter, subsequently married Hugh Willoughby, of Risley. Some pedigrees make out that another daughter, variously termed Isabel and Agnes, married John Okeover; if so he must have been the brother of Ralph Okeover, but we believe that is a confusion with the match of the eldest daughter Anne. There was, undoubtedly, a fourth daughter, Beatrice, not mentioned in this document, who married Henry Columbell, of Darley. See Harl MSS 1537 f4; Add MSS 28113; Pegge's Collections vol vi f114 etc
