Nicholas Brome, Esq., of Baddesley Clinton, Kingswood in Lapworth and Rowington, Lapworth Hall, Woodlows and Warwick. Sheriff of Warwickshire.

Son of John Brome and Beatrice Shirley, husband of Elizabeth Arundel, daughter of Sir Ralph Arundel. They had two daughters:
Margaret Brome, wife of Sir Thomas Marrow
Constance Brome, wife of Sir Edward Ferres.

Me married secondly, Miss Catesby, daughter of Nicholas. They had two sons; John and Ralph.

He married a third time to Katherine Lampeck, and they had one son and one daughter, Elizabeth, who married Thomas Hawes.

Nicholas revenged his father's murder by killing the villain, John 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.

In the south window of the chapel of the Guild of Knowle were the arms of Nicholas Brome and the words: Pray for the souls of Nicholas Brome, Esq., and Elizabeth his wife. In Baddesley Clinton "Under a large marble lying within the Church dore, at the very entrance, whereupon hath been a faire portraiture in brasse, of a man in armour, lyeth buried Nicholas Brome sometime lord of this Mannour. And under the next stone, lyeth Elizabeth, one of his daughters, wife to Thomas Hawe of Solihull." In the lower part of the east window of the Chancel " is the picture of the same Sir Edward [Ferrers], and the Lady Constance his wife, with Nicholas Brome Esquire her Father, all kneeling in their surcoats of Armes, before a Crucifix; the scroul from the lips of the said Sir Edward, having this written therein, scil. Amor meus Crucifixus est." In the same window towards the bottom is this inscription of later date: "Nicholas Brome, Esquier, Lord and owner of Badsley married Elizabeth daughter of Sir Rawfre Arundell of Eggleshole in the Countie of Cornwall Knight, Anno Dom. 1473. and died the Xth of October 1517. leaving issue Isabell and Constance, his two daughters, and lieth buried at this Church-dore."
