The manor of Bretforton was granted by Queen Elizabeth I to Robert Dudly, Earl of Leicester, on 29 June 1566. The manor then passed to his brother, Ambrose Dudley, Earl of Warwick, in 1588. In 1679, Capel Hanbury and his wife Honora Hanbury, and Anthony Crompe, sold a fourth part of the manor to William Bagnall. The portion of the manor was the Grange estate, purchased later by the Wylkes family from John Dudley, and sold on to William Canning in 1612. William Canning "is said to have rebuilt [the Grange] in 1635." "[I]n 1642, [William Canning] is said to have sold 'the Farm of the Manor of Bretforton' to Sir John Rous of Rouslench, from whose son, Sir Thomas Rous, it was purchased in 1649 by Sir William Sambach, who died in 1653." [Victoria County History of Worcestershire, Vol. 2 (1906), p. 363]
