Administrative history

Brome Hall: the Bromes were lords from the late thirteenth century to 1510, when James Brome died. The manor passed to his married sisters Mary Jermy and Anne, who married firstly Robert Steele, secondly John Brampton, thirdly Robert Rokewood. At her death it passed to her son Thomas Brampton, who purchased the other half from Edward Brome in 1533. It was then annexed to Sermere hall manor.\r\nSemere: owned by the Seymour family from 1285 to at least 1423; by Ralph Gunton in 1435, by the heirs of John Boteran 1510, who sold it to Christopher Coote in that year. Christopher was succeeded by his son Richard, later knighted, who (according to Blomefield) lived to be 124 years old. Sir Charles Coote died in 1642, and the manor was subsequently joined to Brome Hall.
