Very early Brindleys

For anyone interested in the early history of Brindleys, I have come across the following, information, the name was spelt in the medieval way of Brundelegh or Brundeley:
Edward, Earl of Chester grants to John de Brundeley the office of constable at Beeston castle, Cheshire. Nov. 10th 1359, 35th year of Edward III's reign. Beeston castle is less than 6 miles from the village of Brindley.
Also later in Tudor times William Brundley of Wistaston In Trinity term (June and July)1530, filed a bill before Sir Thomas More at the court of the Star chamber, which asserted that his father had died and Sir Robert Fouleshurst had wrongly entered into his lands and made an estate thereof to John Fouleshurst.
I would be pleased to hear from anyone who has any early history of Brindleys.
