"... The Breton family, however, was for a long time associated with Long Itchington, particularly the hamlet, sometimes described as a manor, of BASCOTE, of which the overlordship was apparently still held by Edward Doddyngselles at his death in 1466. In 1195 Robert Brito and Maud his wife, with Nicholas and Juliana, paid 5 marks for the recognition of 17s. worth of land in Sale and Bascote. During the reign of John, Nicholas Breton was confirmed in possession of 8 yardlands in Bascote and Long Itchington by David de Lindsey, descendant of Eleanor one of the Limesi heiresses, for a quarter of a knight's fee. In 1313 Guy son of Peter le Bretun granted some of his possessions, including a mill, in Bascote, Long Itchington and elsewhere, and the reversion of lands held in dower by Simon de Mancetter and Mary his wife (presumably widow of Guy's father) to Peter de Lymesy and Alice his wife, and in the following year made a settlement of others on himself, his wife Joan, and Maud widow of Thomas de Grey. In 1352-3 Thomas, Guy's son, also made a settlement of his estates, including those in Bascote and Itchington; shortly before his death (c. 1360) he made over his estates to William Breton in trust for his son, to prevent the latter becoming the ward of the king, who had the custody of the Odingsels heir at the time. ..."
