Notes

!CONFLICT: Burkešs GENEALOGICAL AND HERALDIC HISTORY OF THE LANDED GENTRY, Eighteenth Edition, Vol. I, Burkešs Peerage Limited, London, 1965, p. 246, has this Galfridus as the elder son of Humphrey, while John Burke, A GENEALOGICAL AND HERALDIC HISTORY OF THE COMMONERS OF GrREAT BRITAIN AND IRELAND, Genealogical Publishing Co., Inc., Baltimore, 1977, p. 290, has him as grandson by Humphrey's youngest son Nicholas. Both of these traditions refer to the Visitation of Wiltshire for 1623 as their source. A translation of the partial charters, as quoted in The Visitation of Wiltshire for 1623, reveals some interesting points verifying this conclusion: "Sciant praesentes et futuri quod ego Galicia relicta Humphredi le Her de Bromham dedi concessi et hac praesenti Carta mea Confirmavi Nicholaio filio meo &c Hijs testibus Rico de Bridwolston, Rogero le Blount, Willo le Blount, Magistro Simone, Johanne de la Mason Sans date." ["Know all present and future that I Galicia widow of Humphrey le Her de Bromham hereby give and here present my seal confirming Nicholas as my son etc. Witness this Richard de Bridwolston, Roger le Blount, William le Blount, Sir Simon, John de la Mason, without date."] The next charter confirms that Nicholas was Galfridus of Bromhamšs BROTHER: "Sciant praesentes et futuri quod ego Galfridus le Here de Bromham dedi concessi et hac praesenti Carta mea Confirmavi Nicholaio fratri meo pro homagio et servitio suo &c Hijs testibus Rico de Brawanton tunc ballivo, Rogero le Blount, Willo (Wanthelin) le Blount et aliis Sans Date." ["Know all present and future that I Galfridus le Here of Bromham dedicate, concede and here present my seal confirming Nicholas as my brother for your homage and service, etc. Witness this Richard de Brawanton Bailiff, Roger le Blount, William (Wanthelin) le Blount and others, without date."] Finally, a third, dated charter is quoted: "Pateat universis per praesentes quod ego Galfridus le Eyre de Bromham dedi et concessi et praesenti scripto [meo] Confirmavi Willo: Rolf &c Hijs testibus Johanne de la Roch: Willo le White Stephano le Eyr Thome Milis Johanne le Stocke et multis alijs Dat apud Bromham die Dominica proxima ante festum Sti Thomae Apli Anno Regni Regis Edward Filij Regis Edw: 15: 20 Dec. 1321." ["Universal patent for all present that I Galfridus le Eyre de Bromham dedicate and concede and present my signature confirming William, Rolf, etc. Witness this John de la Roch: William le White, Stephen le Eyr, Thomas Mills, John le Stocke, and many others. Dated at Bromham, the Lordšs Day, just before the feast of Saint Thomas during the 15th. regnal year of King Edward son of King Edward, 20 Dec. 1321."] These charters confirm that Galfridus is the BROTHER of Nicholas, son of Humphrey. However, the genealogy portrayed in the Visitation shows Galfridus as the SON of Nicholas. Since the grants quoted in the Wiltshire Visitation are primary sources, while the genealogy is technically a secondary source, it is Tradition A that is followed here.
