  General Notes:

NESTA [Agnes] . A manuscript narrating the history of Brecknock priory records that the founder "Bernard de Nefmarche, Norman" married "Neste qe fut apele Agnes, la file Griffin le fiz Lewelin…cruel tyrant de Gales", although this skips a generation. The primary source which confirms her parentage has not yet been identified. The Historia fundationis cum fundatoris genealogia of the priory of Abergavenny names "Sibillam, legitimam hæredem totius terræ Breconiæ…Bernardi et Agnetis de Novo-Mercato"as parents of "Sibillam, legitimam hæredem totius terræ Breconiæ" who married "Milonem". The Chronicle of Battle Abbey records that "Bernardus cognomento de Novo Mercato…uxor Agnes" donated property in Brecknock to Battle abbey.

m BERNARD de Neufmarché, son of GEOFFROY de Neufmarché & his wife Ada --- (-1125). "Bernardus de Novo-mercato" donated property to Breckon priory, for the soul of "Philippi filii mei", by charter dated to the reign of King Henry I. Florence of Worcester records that "Beornardus de Novo Mercatu, Rogerius de Laceio…Rawlfus de Mortuo Mari…cum hominibus comitis Rogeri de Scrobbesbyria" threatened Worcester with an army of Normans and Welsh, dated to [1088].

Nesta married Bernard de Neufmarché, son of Geoffroy de Neufmarché Seigneur de Neufmarché and Ada de Heugleville. (Bernard de Neufmarché was born after 1054 and died in 1125 1.)
