     Bertha (?) de Gloucester-Hereford married William II de Braiose 3rd Lord Bramber of Brecknock, Abergavenney, & Gowr, son of Philip de Braiose 2nd Lord of Bramber and Aenor de Toteneis, between 1140 and 1150; Genealogics says m. ca 1150; Med Lands says m. bef 1140.4,5,1,2,3,6,7
     ; Per Racines et Histoire (Braose): “William II de Braose ° ~ 1100/1126 (Bramber) + après 1179 (1192 ?) Lord of Brecknock, Abergavenny, Over-Gwent et Gower, 1er baron de Gwentland, Sheriff
     ép. ~1150 Bertha de Gloucester (of Hereford) ° ~1130 (Gloucester) (fille de Miles FitzWalter, earl of Hereford, et de Sibyl de Neufmarché)”.8

; Per Med Lands:
     "WILLIAM [II] de Briouse, son of PHILIPPE de Briouse & his wife Eleanor de Barnstaple (before 5 Jan [1096]-after [1175]). The most difficult question relating to William [II] de Briouse is whether he in fact represents one person or two persons, father and son. If the charter dated to [1096] is correctly dated, his life was improbably long if he was one person. In addition, the 1157 Pipe Roll lists William among "Nova Placita et Novæ Conventiones" for the honour of Barnstaple, which suggests that the William in question had recently inherited his property rights, presumably from his father as the death of his supposed grandfather Philippe is dated to [1131/39]. This looks straightforward until we consider the charter dated [1140], which clarifies that Bertha of Gloucester was the wife of William, son of Philippe de Briouse, which appears to exclude their being two individuals named William. "Philippus de Brausia" confirmed the donations to the church of Saints Gervais et Protais de Briouze, by "pater eius Guillemus de Brausia", before leaving for Jerusalem, by charter dated 5 Jan [1096], with the consent of "uxor eius Aanor et Guillelmus filius suus"[770]. "Willielmus de Braiosa" confirmed the donations to the church of Saints Gervais et Protais de Briouze by "Philippus de Braiosa pater eiusdem Willielmi", by undated charter, witnessed by "Bertam conjugem meam, Philippum fratrem meum"[771]. "Willelmus de Braiosa, Philippi filius" notified "filio suo" that he had donated "Armigetone mansionem" to the monks of Saint-Florent by charter dated to [1140], witnessed by "Robertus frater meus…", later confirmed by "Willelmus dominus de Braiosa filius Philippi, avi mei filii Willelmi" witnessed by "Bertam conjugem meam, Philippum fratrem meum…"[772]. A charter dated [1154] records that "Willelmus de Braiosa et Willelmus de Harecourt" donated the church of Sumtinges to the Templars[773]. This joint donation suggests a family relationship between the donors, but this has not yet been traced. The 1157 Pipe Roll records "Will’s de Braiosa" owing 1000 marks for "parte sua de honore de Barnestapl" in "Nova Placita et Novæ Conventiones"[774]. The 1157 Pipe Roll records "Will. de Braiosa" in Herefordshire[775]. Military fee certifications in the Red Book of the Exchequer, in 1166, record the knights’ fees held from "Willelmi de Brahosa de honore de Berdestaple" in Devon[776]. The Red Book of the Exchequer refers to "Willelmus de Breose xxviii m" in Devonshire in [1167/68][777]. The Red Book of the Exchequer records enfeoffments in the duchy of Normandy in [1172], "Willemus de Braiosa" with three knights "de Braiosa"[778]. He was Lord of Abergavenny and Brecon from [1173] by grant of his brother-in-law Mahel FitzMiles[779]. The Annales Cambriæ record that "Willielmo de Breusa" killed "Seisil filius Dinawal et Gefrei filius eius…in Abergavenni" in 1175[780]. “Willielmus de Braosa” confirmed donations to Abergavenny Priory by “Hamelinus de Balon et Brientius comitis filius et Walterus de Herefort et Henricus de Herefort” by undated charter, witnessed by “Rogero fratre meo…”[781].
     "m (before [1140]) BERTHA, daughter of MILES of Gloucester Earl of Hereford & his wife Sibylle de Neufmarché. The Historia fundationis cum fundatoris genealogia of the priory of Abergavenny names “Margaretam, Bertam et Luciam” as the three daughters of “Milonem” & his wife, adding that Berthe married “Philippo de Brusa domino de Duelth“ (naming their descendants) and inherited “tota terra Breconiæ, Wenciæ superioris et Gower”[782]. A manuscript narrating the history of Brecknock priory records that “Berte” married “Willame de Brewes”, and also lists her descendants[783]. "Willielmus de Braiosa" confirmed the donations to the church of Saints Gervais et Protais de Briouze by "Philippus de Braiosa pater eiusdem Willielmi", by undated charter, witnessed by "Bertam conjugem meam, Philippum fratrem meum"[784]. "Willelmus de Braiosa, Philippi filius" notified "filio suo" that he had donated "Armigetone mansionem" to the monks of Saint-Florent by charter dated to [1140], witnessed by "Robertus frater meus…", later confirmed by "Willelmus dominus de Braiosa filius Philippi, avi mei filii Willelmi" witnessed by "Bertam conjugem meam, Philippum fratrem meum…"[785]."

     "Born: probably 1140/50
     "Died: 9th August 1211 at Corbeuil
     "At his peak Lord of Bramber, Gower, Abergavenny, Brecknock, Builth, Radnor, Kington, Limerick and the three castles of Skenfrith, Grosmont (right) and Whitecastle.
     "William inherited Bramber, Builth and Radnor from his father; Brecknock and Abergavenny through his mother. He was the strongest of the Marcher Lords involved in constant war with the Welsh and other lords. He was particularly hated by the Welsh for the massacre of three Welsh princes, their families and their men which took place during a feast at his castle of Abergavenny in 1175. He was sometimes known as the "Ogre of Abergavenny". One of the Normans' foremost warriors, he fought alongside K.Richard at Chalus in 1199 (when Richard received his fatal wound).
     "William received Limerick in 1201 from K. John. He was also given custody of Glamorgan, Monmouth and Gwynllwg in return for large payments.
     "William captured Arthur, Count of Brittany at Mirebeau in 1202 and was in charge of his imprisonment for King John. He was well rewarded in February 1203 with the grant of Gower. He may have had knowledge of the murder of Arthur and been bribed to silence by John with the city of Limerick in July. His honours reached their peak when he was made Sheriff of Herefordshire by John for 1206-7. He had held this office under Richard from 1192 to 1199.
     "His fall began almost immediately. William was stripped of his office as bailiff of Glamorgan and other custodies by K. John in 1206/7. Later he was deprived of all his lands and, sought by K.John in Ireland, he returned to Wales and joined the Welsh Prince Llewelyn in rebellion. He fled to France in 1210 via Shoreham "in the habit of a beggar" and died in exile near Paris. Despite intending to be interred at St. John's, Brecon, he was buried in the Abbey of St. Victoire, Paris by Stephen Langton, the Archbishop of Canterbury, another of John's chief opponents who was also taking refuge there. His wife and son William were murdered by John, possibly starved to death at Windsor Castle.

; Per Wikipedia:
     "William de Braose, (or William de Briouze), 4th Lord of Bramber (1144/1153 – 9 August 1211), court favourite of King John of England, at the peak of his power, was also Lord of Gower, Abergavenny, Brecknock, Builth, Radnor, Kington, Limerick, Glamorgan, Skenfrith, Briouze in Normandy, Grosmont, and White Castle.
Lineage
     "William was the most notable member of the de Braose dynasty. His steady rise and sudden fall at the hands of King John is often taken as an example of that king's arbitrary and capricious behaviour towards his barons.
     "William was the son of William de Braose, 3rd Lord of Bramber and his wife Bertha of Hereford, also known as Bertha de Pitres, (born 1130) daughter of Miles Fitz Walter, Earl of Hereford and his wife, Sibyl, daughter of Bernard de Neufmarche. From his father he inherited the Rape of Bramber, in Sussex, and through his mother he inherited a large estate in the Welsh Marches area of modern-day Monmouthshire.
Abergavenny Massacre
     "In 1175, William de Braose carried out the Abergavenny Massacre, luring three Welsh princes and other Welsh leaders to their deaths. His principal antagonist was a Seisyll ap Dyfnwal, of Castell Arnallt near Llanover in the valley of the River Usk near Abergavenny, whom he blamed for the death of his uncle Henry. After having invited the Welsh leaders to a Christmas feast at Abergavenny Castle under the pretence of peace and the start of a new era at the end of the year (a traditional time for settling outstanding differences amongst the Welsh), he had them murdered by his men. This resulted in great hostility against him among the Welsh, who named him the "Ogre of Abergavenny". Gerald of Wales exonerates him and emphasises the religious piety of de Braose and his wife and de Braose generosity to the priories of Abergavenny and Brecon. William de Braose did however reputedly hunt down and kill Seisyll ap Dyfnwal's surviving son, Cadwaladr, a boy of seven.
     "In 1192 William de Braose was made sheriff of Herefordshire, a post he held until 1199. In 1196 he was made Justice Itinerant for Staffordshire. In 1195 he accompanied King Richard I of England to Normandy and in 1199, William de Braose fought beside Richard at Châlus, where the king was mortally wounded. He then supported King John's claim to the throne of England, and represented the new king, making various royal grants.
The disappearance of Arthur I, Duke of Brittany
     "In 1203, William de Braose was put in charge of Arthur of Brittany, at an unknown age whom he had personally captured the previous year at the Battle of Mirebeau. William was suspected of involvement in Arthur's disappearance and death, although no concrete evidence ever came to light. There is somewhat better evidence that he at least knew the truth of the matter. William was in attendance with John in Normandy at the time of Arthur of Brittany's imprisonment and it was alleged that Arthur suffered the same fate as the Welsh princes at William's hand, although this has never been proven. Arthur's death remains a mystery. After Arthur disappeared, De Braose served in the war of 1204 against King Philip II of France in France.
Royal favourite
     "He was greatly favoured by King John early in his reign. John granted him all that he might conquer from the Welsh in Radnorshire, gave him lordship over Limerick in Ireland (save for the city itself), possession of Glamorgan castle, and the Lordship of Gower with its several castles.
     "In early 1200, King John deprived Theobald Walter, 1st Baron Butler of all his offices and lands in Ireland because of his irregularities as sheriff. His lands were not restored until January 1202.[1] A manuscript in the National Library of Ireland points to William as the agent of his restoration:
"Grant by William de Braosa, (senior) to Theobald Walter (le Botiller) the burgh of Kildelon (Killaloe) ... the cantred of Elykaruel (the baronies of Clonlisk and Ballybritt, Co. Offaly), Eliogarty, Ormond, Ara and Oioney, etc. 1201."[2]

     ""Elykaruel" refers to the Gaelic tuath of "Ely O'Carroll", which straddled the southern part of County Offaly and the northern part of Tipperary (at Ikerrin). The other cantreds named are probably the modern baronies of Eliogarty, Ormond Upper, Ormond Lower and Owney and Arra in County Tipperary.
     "Before 1206 William successfully claimed half of the barony of Totnes from Henry de Nonant, to which family it had been granted after its forfeiture from Juhel de Totnes.[3]
     "In 1206, after his service in France, King John gave William de Braose the three great neighbouring trilateral castles of Gwent (Skenfrith Castle, Grosmont Castle, and White Castle). These have been interpreted as bribes encouraging silence on the demise of Arthur, seen by many as a rightful heir to the throne occupied by John of England.
     "At this point only an earldom separated him from the greatest in England.
Royal persecution and death in exile
     "Soon after this, William de Braose fell out of favour with King John of England. The precise reasons remain obscure. King John cited overdue monies that de Braose owed the Crown from his estates, but the King's actions went far beyond what would be necessary to recover the debt. He distrained (seized) de Braose's English estates in Sussex and Devon, and sent a force to invade Wales to seize the de Braose domains there. Beyond that, he sought de Braose's wife, Maud de St. Valery, who, the story goes, had made no secret of her belief that King John had murdered Arthur of Brittany. [b]
     "De Braose fled to Ireland, then returned to Wales as King John had him hunted in Ireland. In Wales, William allied himself to the Welsh Prince Llywelyn the Great, and helped him in his rebellion against King John.
     "In 1210, William de Braose fled Wales disguised as a beggar, to France. His wife and eldest son were captured. William died the following year in August 1211 at Corbeil, France. He was buried in the Abbey of St. Victor in Paris by a fellow exile and vociferous opponent of King John, Stephen Langton, the Archbishop of Canterbury. His hopes to return alive to Wales and for a burial in Brecon were to be unfulfilled. William's wife, Maud, and eldest son, William, once captured, were allegedly murdered by King John, possibly starved to death while incarcerated at Windsor Castle and Corfe Castle in 1210.
     "While William had aroused the jealousy of the other barons during his rise, the arbitrary and violent manner of his fall very probably discomfited them and played a role in the Baronial uprisings of the next decade. The historian Sidney Painter, in his biography of King John, called it "the greatest mistake John made during his reign, as the King revealed to his Barons once and for all his capacity for cruelty."[5]
The de Braose lineage
     "William de Braose's eldest son, William, married Maud (Matilda) de Clare (ca. 1184–1213), the daughter of Richard de Clare, 3rd Earl of Hertford. This younger William was captured with his mother and starved to death in 1210. He had fathered four sons, John, Giles, Philip and Walter and although they were also held in prison, they were released in 1218. John, the eldest, was said to have been brought up secretly, in Gower, by a Welsh ally or retainer. On his release he came under the care of his uncle Giles de Braose. John made a claim to being the rightful heir of the de Braose lands and titles and although the courts did not find for him, his other uncle Reginald de Braose was able to cede by a legal convention the Baronies of both Gower and Bramber to him for a fee. This established John's branch of the family and positioned it for survival at least or, at best, an opportunity for continued future power and influence.
Later dynasty
     "The middle son, Giles de Braose, exiled in France until 1213, was Bishop of Hereford from 1200 until his death in 1215. He made peace with King John and agreed terms for regaining de Braose lands in 1215 but had also made alliances with the Welsh leader Llywelyn the Great. He died in 1215 before he could come into the lands.
     "William's third son, Reginald de Braose reacquired his father's lands and titles for himself through simply seizing them back by force following the death of Giles. Reginald did not actually come to terms with the Crown until 1217 and the new, young King Henry III of England, after the death of King John. This, in turn, aroused the anger of Llywelyn the Great who had an understanding with Giles de Braose and the seeming duplicity caused the Welsh to attack de Braose lands in Brecon and Abergavenny and Gower. Abergavenny Castle had to be rebuilt as a result. Reginald de Braose died in 1228.
     "William's eldest daughter Matilda/Maud married a prominent Welsh prince, Gruffydd ap Rhys II of Deheubarth.
     "Another daughter, Margaret, married Walter de Lacy, Lord of Meath in Ireland and himself another powerful Marcher Lord. [ There seem to be some confusion with Matilde on who her father is re Professor Thomas Jones Pierce, M.A., F.S.A., (1905-1964), Aberystwyth. she is the daughter of William Braose and Bertha Hereford the father of this William ]
Fiction
     "The story of the death of Maud de St. Valery and the conflict of her family with John Lackland is covered in several novels, notably Lady of Hay by Barbara Erskine. Erskine describes the life of Maud by sending a woman of the 20th century by psychological regression back into the 12th century.
Notes
a. Arthur of Brittany was John's nephew and was seen by many as the rightful heir to the English throne.
b. Gerald of Wales describes Maud as a 'prudent and chaste woman' who bore her husband three sons William, Giles and Reginald de Braose.

A manuscript which narrates the descents of the founders of Lanthony Abbey names “Willielmus, Egidius et Reginaldus” as the three sons of “Willelmo Brewes” and his wife “Berta…comitis Milonis secunda filia”, adding that William was disinherited by King John[786]. The Red Book of the Exchequer refers to "Willelmus de Breose xxviii l de honore de Berdestaple" in Devonshire in [1186/87][787]. The Red Book of the Exchequer, listing scutage payments in [1190/91], records "Willelmus de Braosa" in Sussex[788]. The Red Book of the Exchequer, listing scutage payments in [1194/95], names "Willelmus de Breose" among those granted delay in payment "per brevis" in Buckinghamshire, Bedfordshire[789]. "Willelmus de Braiosa, Philippi filius" notified "filio suo" that he had donated "Armigetone mansionem" to the monks of Saint-Florent by charter dated to [1140], witnessed by "Robertus frater meus…", later confirmed by "Willelmus dominus de Braiosa filius Philippi, avi mei filii Willelmi" witnessed by "Bertam conjugem meam, Philippum fratrem meum…"[790]. King John confirmed "honore de Limeric" to "Willo de Braos", as King Henry II had granted it to "Philipp de Braos avunculo predicti Willlemi", by charter dated 12 Jan 1201[791]. "Willelmus de Braosa dominus de Brechen" donated property to Flaxley Abbey, Gloucestershire, for the souls of "uxoris meæ Matildis de Sancto Walerico et puerorum nostrorum", by undated charter, witnessed by "Willelmo et Philippo filiis meis"[792]. His lands were forfeited by King John in 1208[793]. The 13th century Histoire des ducs de Normandie et des rois d’Angleterre records that "Guillaumes de Brayouse" fled from King John to France[794]. Matthew Paris records the death in 1211 “apud Curbulam vigilia Sancti Laurentii” of "Willelmus de Brause senior” who had fled Ireland for France[795]. The Annals of Waverley record that “Willelmus…de Brausa” fled “apud Sorham” after his wife and son were captured and died in Paris soon afterwards[796]. The Annals of Margan record the death in 1211 of “Willielmus de Breusa senior exul in Francia”[797].
     "m ([1170/75]) MATHILDE de Saint-Valéry, daughter of BERNARD de Saint-Valéry & his [second wife Anora ---] (-Corfe Castle 1210). The 13th century Histoire des ducs de Normandie et des rois d’Angleterre names "fille fu Bernart de Saint-Waleri…Mehaus" as the wife of "Guillaumes de Brayouse", commenting that she once boasted about her cows to "Bauduin le conte d’Aubemalle son neveu"[798]. A manuscript which narrates the descents of the founders of Lanthony Abbey names “Matildis de S. Walerico, quondam uxoris Willielmi de Brewes” when recording the marriage of her daughter[799]. "Willelmus de Braosa dominus de Brechen" donated property to Flaxley Abbey, Gloucestershire, for the souls of "uxoris meæ Matildis de Sancto Walerico et puerorum nostrorum", by undated charter, witnessed by "Willelmo et Philippo filiis meis"[800]. Matthew Paris records that "uxorem Willelmi de Brause et Willelmum filium eius cum uxore sua" were captured in 1210 at the siege of Meath, but escaped, were captured again “in insula de May”, and imprisoned at Windsor, in a later passage recording that all four died “apud Windleshores”[801]. A charter of John King of England relating to Briouse properties, dated 1212, recites the history of the king’s turbulent relationship with the family and includes a record that “consanguineus de Galweya...Dunecanus de Karyc” had “apud Cracfergus” at some point (presumably in [1209/10]) captured “Matildis de Haya...et filiam suam uxorem filii Rogeri de Mortimer et...Willelmum juniorem et uxorem suam et duos filios suos”[802]. The Annals of Waverley record that “Matildis matrona nobilis cognomento de la Haie, uxor Willelmi de Braose” was captured with “Willelmo filio suo milite…in Galwaitha” in 1210 and starved to death “apud Windeshores”[803]. A manuscript which narrates the descents of the founders of Lanthony Abbey records that “Mathildis uxor eius et Willielmus filius eorum” (referring to William, son of “Willelmo Brewes” and his wife “Berta…comitis Milonis secunda filia”) were imprisoned by King John and died in prison[804]. The Annals of Dunstable record that “Willelmum de Brause juniorem et sororem eius et Matildam matrem eius” were captured in Ireland in 1210 by King John, adding that they later died in prison[805]. The 13th century Histoire des ducs de Normandie et des rois d’Angleterre records that "Mehaus sa feme [Guillaumes de Braiouse] et Guillaumes ses fils" fled from King John to Ireland where they were captured at "le castiel de Cracfergu", taken to England, and imprisoned at "el castiel del Corf" where they were starved to death[806]. The question whether "Mathilde de Saint-Valéry" and "Mathilde de la Haie" refer to the same person appears to be resolved by the 13th century Histoire des ducs de Normandie et des rois d’Angleterre which records her parentage and the circumstances of her death in the same lengthy passage."

; Per Genealogics:
     "William de Braose, lord of Brecknock, was born about 1150, the son of William Braose, 3rd lord of Bramber, and Bertha of Hereford. With his wife Matilda/Maud de St.Valéry, daughter of Bernard IV de St.Valéry, and his wife Maud, he had nine children of whom two sons and three daughters would have progeny.
     "William was known as the 'Ogre of Abergavenny' for an infamous event in 1175, the Abergavenny Massacre, in which he lured three Welsh princes and other Welsh leaders to their deaths. His principal antagonist was a Seisyll ap Dyfnwal, of Castell Arnallt near Llanover in the valley of the River Usk near Abergavenny, whom he blamed for the death of his uncle Henry. Having invited the Welsh leaders to a Christmas feast at Abergavenny Castle under the pretence of peace and the start of a new era at the end of the year (a traditional time for settling outstanding differences amongst the Welsh), he had them murdered by his men.
     "William was greatly favoured by King John early in his reign. John granted him all that he could conquer from the Welsh in Radnor, gave him lordship over Limerick in Ireland (except for the city itself), possession of Glamorgan castle, and the lordship of Gower with its several castles.
     "In 1203 William was put in charge of Arthur of Brittany, whom he had personally captured the previous year at the Battle of Mirabeau. William was suspected of involvement in Arthur's disappearance and death, although no concrete evidence ever came to light. There is somewhat better evidence that he at least knew the truth of the matter.
     "However, from 1207 onwards William fell from favour, probably because he became too powerful for the king's peace of mind.
     "In March 1208 King John demanded hostages from William as a surety for his loyalty. According to Roger of Wendover, when the king's messengers arrived, William's wife Matilda, with the sauciness of a woman, took the reply out of her husband's mouth by saying, 'I will not deliver up my sons to your lord, King John, because he basely murdered his nephew Arthur, whom he ought to have kept in honourable custody'. William was alarmed at his wife's rash tongue and rebuked her, saying, 'You have spoken like a stupid woman against our lord, the King; for if I have offended him in any way, I am ready to make amends without the security of hostages according to the judgement of my fellow barons in his court, if he will fix a time and place for my doing so'. When the messengers told the king on their return what they had heard, he was furious and secretly sent knights to seize William and his family; William was forewarned by his friends, and fled with his wife, his children and relatives.
     "King John was unable to admit that the reference to Prince Arthur was the real reason for taking action against William de Braose and his family, so he argued that William had not kept up the instalments due on 5,000 marks he had promised the king. In April 1208 the king's soldiers moved into the Braose lands and William offered 40,000 marks for recovering the king's goodwill, which was refused while Matilda was at liberty. In the autumn of 1208 William took his family to Ireland. However, in the spring of 1210 the king prepared to invade Ireland, so William, leaving his family behind, went to Wales. His requests to come to terms with the king were ignored. With this expedition the king wanted to bring the Irish under stricter control, but gave out that it was to catch Matilda and punish the Irish barons who had protected the Braose family.
     "Matilda fled with her sons to Scotland, but there they were taken by a Scottish lord who handed them over to King John's agents. She offered to ransom herself for 40,000 marks, and William went to meet King John on his return to confirm the offer.
     "King John pretended to accept the offer and allowed William to depart to raise the money, but William fled to France. Matilda and their eldest son disappeared into prison, never to emerge again. According to monastic annals they were starved to death, while William died in exile in France in 1211."17

Reginald supported Giles in his rebellions against King John. They were both active against the King in the barons' war. Neither was present at the signing of Magna Carta because they were still rebels who refused to compromise. K. John aquiesced to Reginald's claims to the de Braose estates in Wales in May 1216. He became Lord of Brecon, Abergavenny, Builth and other Marcher Lordships but was very much a vassal of Llewelyn Fawr, Prince of Gwynedd and now his father-in-law. Henry III restored Reginald to favour and the Bramber estates (confiscated from William by K. John) in 1217. At this seeming betrayal, Rhys and Owain, Reginald's nephews who were princes of Deheubarth, were incensed and they took Builth (except the castle). Llewelyn Fawr also became angry and besieged Brecon. Reginald eventually surrendered to Llewelyn and gave up Seinhenydd (Swansea). By 1221 they were at war again with Llewelyn laying siege to Builth. The seige was relieved by Henry III's forces. From this time on Llewelyn tended to support the claims of Reginald's nephew John concerning the de Braose lands.

Reginald was a witness to the re-issue of Magna Carta by Henry III in 1225.

     Geoffrey II de Mandeville 1st Earl of Essex was born circa 1102 at Great Waltham, co. Essex, England.6,7 He married Rohese/Rohesia de Vere, daughter of Aubrey II de Vere of Great Addington & Drayton, co. Northampton and Alice (Adeliza) Fitz Gilbert de Clare.8,1,2,9
Geoffrey II de Mandeville 1st Earl of Essex died circa 15 September 1144 at Mildenhall, co. Suffolk, England; Burke's Peerage says 14 Sept 1144.10,1,11
     ; Geoffrey de Mandeville, who like his fellow (the 2nd) Earl of Essex of the present creation was Constable of the Tower of London, was created Earl of Essex in 1140 by KING STEPHEN. He already held numerous manors in Berks, Bucks, Essex, Herts and Middx, which had belonged to his grandfather, another Geoffrey, at the time of the Domesday Survey in 1086. The family originated in Normandy, but precisely where is unclear, since there are several place names there akin to Mandeville (which seems originally to have been in Latin Magna Villa or 'Great Town'). De Mandeville later sided with the EMPRESS MAUD, who granted him a more generously framed charter, including a clause making the post of Constable of the Tower hereditary. Later still de Mandeville again sided with STEPHEN but subsequently rebelled yet again. His son was recreated Earl of Essex by MAUD in Jan 1155/6, the rebellious habits of the father and perhaps also the appointive nature of earldoms at the time (see NORTHUMBERLAND, D, and RUTLAND, D, for a discussion of early earldoms) requiring a regrant.12 GAV-23 EDV-23 GKJ-24. He was 1st Earl of Essex in 1140.12
