Hugh De Burley
He was successor to his father, fave likewise to those monkds of Bordesley one yard of land lying here in Burley, but within the Fee of Snitfield, and therefore confirmed by Margery de Catilupe and her son John. This John de Catilupe, about the time if Edward I, 1272-1307, withdrew the suit that the inhabitants of this place had usually done with Hundred of Barlichway Court unto his own Court held at Snitfield. Then a John de Cantelupe, son to the last mentioned John, was in 1316 (reign of Edward II), certified to be Lord Paramount of Snitfield. But further than this Hugh de Burley I cannot trace the successtion of this Mannour in that of Burley, nor do I find when or how it went out of it; the next possessor thereof, that I have discovered being William, son of Nicholas de Warwick, which William, in 1315 (reign of Edward II) sold it to one Robert Morwyn.
