A Casa da Trofa tinha ainda as comendas hereditárias de Castelanejo (mais antiga), de Cambra e de Ventosa, a maior parte dos seus senhores teve carta de Concelho e todos, primeiro o título de vassalo e depois o foro e privilégio de fidalgo, e o hábito de Cristo.
Pode assim dizer-se que nesta fase a Casa da Trofa não «mergulhou na obscuridade da vida provincial».
