  • Notes 
    • He was an attorney, one of the conservators of the peace for Warwickshire 1451-61, and one of the commissioners of array for that county in 1459-60. He was a Lancastrian. MP for Warwick 1429, 1432, and 1433.

      "In 1468, while assisting at Mass in the church of the White Friars in London, he was called out to the porch of the church and stabbed to death by John Herthill in a dispute over a mortgage; when offered payment earlier by Herthill, Brome had kept the land. In 1471 Nicholas Brome avenged his father by killing Herthill, for which crime he was ordered to find a priest to say mass daily for two years in the church of Baddesley Clinton for the souls of both victims, and to pay to the widow Elizabeth Herthill 33s 4d."
