  General Notes:

REYNOLD de Briouse (-[5 May 1227/9 Jun 1228]). His parentage is confirmed by a charter dated 24 Jun 1217 under which King Henry III notified those on the lands of "William de Breouse in Ireland" that "Reginald de Breouse having come to his fealty, the king restores to him all the lands which belonged to his father ere". Another version of his parentage, shown to be incorrect, by this 1217 document, is recorded in the manuscript which narrates the descents of the founders of Lanthony Abbey and names "Willielmus, Egidius et Reginaldus" as the three sons of "Willelmo Brewes" and his wife "Berta…comitis Milonis secunda filia", adding that Reynold inherited all the territories of his older brothers. The Annals of Dunstable record that "Reginaldus frater eius" succeeded on the death of "Ægidius Herefordensis episcopus" in 1216, with the help of "Leulini Regis Walliæ" whose daughter he married. Henry III King of England notified a land agreement between "Reginaldum de Braosa" and "Johannem de Braosa" dated 5 Nov 1226.

m firstly GRACE, daughter of WILLIAM Briwere & his wife Beatrix ---. A manuscript which narrates the descents of the founders of Lanthony Abbey records that "Reginaldus de Brews" married "filiam domini Willielmus de la Bruere". A manuscript recording the heirs of William de Briouse records that "Willielmus de Breus" married "Graciam primogenitam et unam hæredum Willielmi Briwere".

m secondly ([1215/16]) GWLADUS Ddu, illegitimate daughter of LLEWELYN ap Iorwerth Prince of North Wales & his mistress --- (-Windsor 1251). The Annals of Dunstable record that "Reginaldus frater eius" (referring to "Ægidius Herefordensis episcopus")married "Leulini Regis Walliæ…filiam" in 1216. A manuscript narrating the foundation of Wigmore Abbey records that "Radulphus"married "Lewelinus princeps…Gwladusam Duy filiam suam", who brought her husband "omnibus terries de Kery et Kedewyn". Henry III King of England granted protection to "Gwladosa filia…[L.] principis [Norwallie] que fuit uxor Reginaldi de Brausa" dated [May] 1229. Henry III King of England granted safe passage to "David filium L. principis Norwallier in veniendo ad regem ad faciendum ei homagium suum, et sororem ipsius David" dated 5 Sep 1229. It is likely that this unnamed sister of David was Gwladus, coming to England with her brother before her second marriage. She married secondly (1230) Ralph de Mortimer of Wigmore. The Annals of Worcester record that "Radulphus de Mortuomari" married "filiam Lewelini, conjugem quondam Reginaldi de Breusa" in 1230. The Annales Cambriæ record the death in 1251 of "Gladus filia domini Lewelini" at Windsor.]

Reynold & his first wife had one child: WILLIAM de Briouse (-hanged 2 May 1230).

------------------------------------------------

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. King 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 beseiged Brecon. Reginald eventually surrendered to Llewelyn and gave up Seinenydd (Swansea). By 1221 they were at war again with Llewelyn laying seige 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. 4


Reynold married Grace de Briwere, daughter of William de Briwere and Beatrice. (Grace de Briwere died before 1215.)


Reynold next married Gwladys verch Llewelyn, daughter of Llywelyn ap Iorwerth Prince of Wales and Unknown, about 1215.1 (Gwladys verch Llewelyn died in 1251 in Windsor, Berkshire, SL4, GB 5 6 7.)
