Bramwra (near Penrith).
48. (C. pp. 32, 33; D. art. 64).—Bricius de Penreth, the
serjeant, grants to Holm abbey land by the water of Amoth
[Eamont] called Sain[t] Wilfriholm [misread (N. & B. ii, 534)
'St. Swithin's Holm'], in breadth from the top of the bank above
that holm to the Amoth, and in length from the top of the bank as
far as the dyke runs to the enclosure (haya) on the Amoth; with
access through his lands of Bramwray and on the east to Edenhal.
Failing which, he will give them an equal portion of land elsewhere
in Penreth. [Bricius the cook got land in Bramwra about 1230
and died before 1260 (C. & W. Trans. n.s. vii, 22; x, 3); see also
no. 251. This grant dates before its confirmation (in no. 226)
by Henry III on September 5th, 1255.]
48a. (H. 2).—"Bramwra contains 7½ acres and half a rood
arable, 5½ acres and one rood meadow, 5 acres and one rood waste.
Pasture within these bounds, i.e. between the arable land and the
Amoth, 4½ acres formerly washed away by the water and now
48b. (H. 2).—John de Mora, knight, grants right of way
through his land of Bramwra to the land and pasture called
Saintwilfritholm. [John de Mora in 1236 was sheriff or custos of
Cumberland; in the Lanercost Register (Wetherhal, 179n) he is
called Seneschal of Gilsland; he witnessed as Sir John the St.
Bees charters no. 230 of 1254 and no. 231 of 1256. This grant
must date c. 1255.]
