  General Notes:

MATILDA de Briouse (-before 23 Mar 1301). A manuscript which narrates the descents of the founders of Lanthony Abbey names "Isabella, Matildis, Eva et Alianora" as the four daughters of "Willielmus de Brews quartus" and his wife "Evam filiam domini Willielmi Mareschalli", adding that Matilda married "Rogero de Mortuomari, domino de Wyggemore". The Chronicle of Tintern Abbey, Monmouthshire names "Matilda, Alianora et Eva" as the three daughters of "Willielmo de Brewes" and his wife "quinta filia…Willihelmi Marescalli…Eva", adding that Matilda married "domino Rogero de Mortuo-mari domino de Wigmore". A manuscript narrating the foundation of Wigmore Abbey records that "Rog. (secundus)…Radulphi et Gwladusæ filius" married "Matildem de Brewys, filiam domini Willielmi de Brewys domini de Breghnoc". A charter dated 28 Jun 1248 records that "Margaret late Countess of Lincoln…recovered her dower out of the lands in Ireland of W[alter] Marshall late Earl of Pembroke her husband" and that the dower was "taken out of the portions of the inheritance which accrued to William de Vescy and Agnes his wife, Reginald de Moun and Isabel his wife, Matilda de Kyme, Francis de Boun and Sibil his wife, William de Vallibus and Alienor his wife, John de Moun and Joan his wife, Agatha de Ferrers in the king's custody, and Roger de Mortimer and Matilda his wife".
