Bertha de Braose 1

  • Marriage (1): William [I] de Beauchamp

  General Notes:

[BERTHA de Briouse . According to Domesday Descendants, the wife of William [I] de Beauchamp was "Bertha, daughter of William II de Braose". The primary source which confirms her parentage and marriage has not yet been identified but, if it is correct, the chronology of her husband´s family suggests that she must have been one of her parents´ older children. The introduction to the Beauchamp Cartulary states that "according to an early 14th century inquest, he married Berta, a daughter of the marcher lord William de Braose c. 1140 and received with her lands in three villages in south Gloucestershire", but noting that the jurors incorrectly state that Bertha was the wife of the great-grandfather of Guy Earl of Warwick who would have been William [II] de Beauchamp.

m WILLIAM [I] de Beauchamp, son of WALTER [I] de Beauchamp of Elmley & his wife [Emmeline] de Abitot (-1170).]

Bertha married William [I] de Beauchamp, son of Walter [I] de Beauchamp of Elmley Castle, Worcestershire and Emmeline d'Abetot. (William [I] de Beauchamp died in 1170 2 and was buried in Worcester, Worcestershire, WR1, GB.)
