BRASBRIGG or BRACEBRIGGE, JOHN (fl. 1428), appears as a priest of the convent of Syon in 1428 (Aungier). He is said to have given a large number of books to the convent, and to have written a treatise entitled 'Catholicon continens quatuor partes grammaticæ,' which, with other manuscripts belonging to Syon monastery, passed to Corpus Christi College, Cambridge, its place in the old catalogue being 0. 16, and in Nasmith CXLII. The name of Brasbrigg is not to be found in Nasmith's catalogue.
