In 6 Edwd I "Richard de Bromhall obtained release (ie. exemption) for himself and his tenants in Bromhall, Duckenfield and 11 parts of Baguley (sic) from Hamon de Massey, for being impleaded in the courts of Dunham.
He is called Sir Richard in the pedigrees of this family, ?son of William, son of John, son of Edward?, and is allowed for his armorial coat, Sable, a lion rampant Or". [ie. gold on black], as in the early seals of the lords of Dunham.
This Richard also occurs in 17 Edwd I (=1289). His son lived in the reigns of the three Edwards, and was succeeded by his brother Sir Geoffrey de Bromhale.
Bramall Hall in Cheshire is one of the county's grandest black and white timber-framed buildings. The oldest parts of the building date from the 14th century however the Manor has been held in other forms since the time of the Saxons when two feemen Brun and Hacun held the Manor of Bramale as two separate manors.
Around 1070 the Bramale estates were given by William the Conqueror to Hamo de Masci, the first Baron of Durham Massey.
In the 12th century it passed from the Masseys to Mathew de Bromale (believed to have been a relation). It remained in this family until the late 14th century when it passed to the Davenports through marriage.
