William de Bradburne

circa 1305 - bef 1368

Father Roger de Bradburne
Mother Margery
Wife unknown
Children Roger


William was probably born sometime during the first few years of the 14th century, the youngest of the four sons of Roger de Bradburne and Margery, having elder brothers Henry, John and Roger. Following his mother's death, his father remarried Phillipa, and two younger half-brothers, John and Richard were born. (1)

In 1325/26 William, along with his brothers John and Richard, was in trouble for fighting alongside the Ipstones family in a dispute with Thomas de Brumpton (2).

In 1327 he was pardonned his outlawry over a trespass charge (3). His brother John was also pardonned (4), but the nature of original offence isn't clear. It may have been related to the Ipstones/Brumpton dispute of a year or two beforehand.

In 1329 he was accused, along with his brother John and many others including members of the Coterel family, of illegally hunting deer on Henry, earl of Lancaster's lands (5). The following year a warrant for his arrest, along with John and three of the Coterels was issued (6). Another year after that, he and John, along with their brother Richard, the Coterels, and many others, were once again in trouble over assault and robbery on Walter de Neuton, vicar of Bakewell (7).

He held family land in Kniveton and Parwich from at least 1331 (8). He still held it in 1346 (9), which is the last time he is known to still be living. He was dead by 1368 (10).

His only known child was his son and heir Roger, but given that Roger was born no earlier that 1348 (10), its highly likely that William had other, older children, but that no older sons survived to adulthood.

    And the same jurors [of Tamworth] said that about the Feast of Trinity, 17 E. II., a dispute arose between Thomas de Brumpton on one part and William de Ipstanes on the other concerning the Church of Chirche-Eyton, to which church the said Thomas had been instituted, and he held it until the said William de Ipstanes and John de Ipstanes his brother, Henry de Cressewalle, Philip de Ipstanes, Philip son of Vivian de Chetewynde, William de Chetelton, John de Picheford, Thomas de Budeyerd, Thomas of the Greneway, Stephen de Beghterton, John de Coueleye, Eoger Priour of Couleye and seven others named, had on the day and year above named ejected him by force, and they had all with the exception of William de Ipstanes, Henry de Cressewalle, William de Chetelton,(and Thomas of the Greneway, besieged the manor house of Mary de Brumpton at Eyton with swords, bows and arrows, against the King's peace, and to the great terror of the people.
