  General Notes:

BERTHA. 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 Breconiĉ, Wenciĉ superioris et Gower". A manuscript narrating the history of Brecknock priory records that "Berte" married "Willame de Brewes", and also lists her descendants. "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".

m (before [1140]) WILLIAM [II] de Briouse, son of PHILIPPE de Briouse & his wife Eleanor of Barnstaple (-[1175]). He was Lord of Abergavenny and Brecon from [1173] by grant of his brother-in-law Mahel FitzMiles.

[Complete Peerage I:21-2, XIV:6, (transcribed by Dave Utzinger)]

Note: The above text "1st Earl of Gloucester", which was part of a correction in CP XIV:6, is a mistake; Miles was Earl of Hereford.


Bertha married William [II] de Braose of Bramber and Abergavenny, son of Philip de Braose and Eleanor de Totnes, before 1140. (William [II] de Braose of Bramber and Abergavenny was born before 5 Jan 1096 and died after 1175 4 5.)
