    Notes 
    • “WILLIAM de Briwere (-24 Nov 1226). King John confirmed the grant of "foresta nostra de la Bera", granted by King Henry I to "Willelmus Briwerr avus eius", to "Willelmo Briwere" by charter dated 21 Mar 1200. The Red Book of the Exchequer records "Willelmus Bruere" holding (unspecified) knights´ fees "Burbeche" in Wiltshire, and land "Stokes et Siteleshangre quæ fuerunt Gerardi de Mauqu[eney]" in Northamptonshire, in [1210/12]. A charter which records the foundation of Motisfont Priory, Hampshire states that “dominus Willielmus Briwer, fundator ecclesiæ de Mottesfount” died "VIII Kal Dec", lists his donations including the donation of land "in Muchelmares" and revenue from land "in villa de Burbache" for the soul of "Beatriricis uxoris suæ qui obiit IX Kal Apr". m BEATRICE, daughter of --- (-24 Mar ----). A charter which records the foundation of Motisfont Priory, Hampshire states that “dominus Willielmus Briwer, fundator ecclesiæ de Mottesfount” donated land "iin Muchelmares" and revenue from land "in villa de Burbache" for the soul of "Beatricis uxoris suæ qui obiit IX Kal Apr". The Complete Peerage states that Dugdale calls the wife of William de Briwere "Beatrice de Valle, says she was the mistresess of Rainald Earl of Cornwall", but does not cite a primary source on which this information is based. The chronology does not appear to favour the subsequent marriage of the mistress of Earl Renaud to William de Briwere. The marriages of the latter´s children are recorded in the first decade of the 13th century, their births being therefore estimated to [1185/1200]. Even if Earl Renaud´s mistress gave birth to the earl´s illegitimate son in the last decade of his life (when he would have been in his sixties), it is unlikely that she could have continued bearing children into the later 1190s. William & his wife had seven children.”««s87»» [1]
