Here is a list of medieval references to Philippa Bryan, the older daughter of Sir Guy de Bryan and his wife Alice. Philippa was born in about 1379. She married twice, firstly to John Devereux, son of John, Lord Devereux. John died in 1396, after which Philippa married Henry le Scrope, 3rd Baron Scrope of Masham. From evidence here, we knaow that  Philippa died in 1406, without children. Henry le Scrope married again, but was executed in 1415 for treason.

The entries below are arranged in three tables, each in date order; firstly a list relating to Philippa, then lists for her two husbands. Actual quotes are in italics.

14 Feb 1387 Philip Brien ‘chivaler’.
Somerset. Inq taken at Frome Branche, 14 Feb, 10 Rc II.
He held the undermentioned manor of Faleys etc. in his demesne as of fee. He held the undermentioned manors of Schokerwike and Batheneston in fee tail by gift and feoffment of

Dorset. Inq taken at Shirborn, 10 Feb 10 RicII. He held no lands in the county. Date of death as above. Heirs not known.
Writ to the escheator in co Somerset to make further enquiry touching the above-mentioned gift of the manors of Schokterwyke and Batheneston by
Guy de Briene (Somerset inquisition); as the charter of the said gift exhibited in Chancery on behalf of William de Briene for the purposes of suing the said manors out of the king’s hands states that the said Guy gave Philip the manor of Schokerwyke and £12 rent in Watheneston [sic], and the king wishes to be certified whether the said rent in Watheneston [sic] is the same thing as the entire manor of Batheneston, as is confidently testifies on behalf of the said William, or not. 22 Mar 10 Ric II.
Somerset. Inq taken at Bath, Wed in Easter week, 10 Ric II. Guy de Bryene, knight, Philip’s father, gave and by his charter confirmed to the said Philip the manor of Schokerwyk and £12 rent in Batheneston, to hold to him and the heirs of his body, with remainder iin default to William de Bryene and the heirs male of his body, and with remainder over to the right heirs of the said Guy. There is no rent of £12 in Watheneston, as the writ suggested, but there is such a rent in Batheneston. It is not the manor of Batheneston, but a rent in the town of Batheneston.
Writ to the escheator to make enquiry concerning the truth of a petition from John Braunche alleging that the aforesaid Philip granted to him for life a yearly rent of 10 marks, with 2 tunics and hoods of the same suit and suitable furs of the suit of a yeoman, to be received out of the aforesaid manor of Faleys with Frome Braunche, and that he was in full and peaceful possession thereof from long before Philip’s death until he was unjustly removed therefrom by colour of the above inquisition. 15 Oct 11 Ric II.
Somerset. Inq taken at Crukerne, Thu before St Clement the Pope, 11 Ric II. The statements in the said petition are true.


Also a later Inquisition, taken 17 Jan 1400:

Writ, melius sciri, enquiring who are the other heirs, as it was stated in the inquisitions taken on 14 Feb 1388 that Philippa, one of the daughters and heirs of Guy Bryen junior, brother of Philip, was one heir of Philip, aged 9 year and more, but who were the other heirs was not known.
Somerset. Inq Queen Camel 17 Jan 1400. Elizabeth, wife of Robert son of John Lovell, and Philippa, wife of Henry Skrop, knight, daughters of Guy de Bryen, junior, brother of Philip, are his nieces and heirs. Elizabeth is aged 16 years and more. There are no other heirs.

In the case of Devon, these inquiries went on until 1399, more than 8 years after his death. By this time, William Bryan was dead, without children, so the later entries here are correct in naming Philippa and Elizabeth as Guy's heirs. It is not clear, however, why the earlier entries ignore William's legitimate claim.
