Re: Brundelegh de Brundeley

Another reference to Richard was in 1288 with Brindley spelled in another of its medieval forms, Burndelegh, also menions Stok (Stoke, as Gilbert de Stoke) and Bulkelegh (Bulkeley) both Cheshire families, as follows:

In 1288 a trespass case in which Philip Russel sued William de Bulkelegh and Richard de Burndelegh and William son of Matilda de Stok. Also ‘Birndelegh’ when Richard the clerk of that place failed to prosecute William de Spurstow that same year. The same source – the County Court Rolls – also state that the Burland family had lands in Burndelegh.

Some Brindley family trees that go back this far refer to Brundelegh de Brundeley as: (?)Brundelegh de Brundeley. It seems they are uncertain of a forename, it may be this Richard mentioned in 1288 and later in 1311 is the original Brindley of Brindley?
Incidentally, grandson of the original Brindley, John, the constable of Beeston castle was also a clerk, of Cumbermere Abbey.
Any comments welcome as this is new/rediscovered Brindley family history.
