    Richardson, Royal Ancestry, has this Peter (Piers) de Brus dying "7 Sept., before 1247, probably in 1240." He mentions nothing about him being a "Crusader."

    The Wallop Family says he died at Marseilles, 1247.

    Ancestral Roots, 8th ed. (2004) is very confused about this individual, varying his parentage and at least once conflating him with his father:

    Andrew Lancaster (citation details below):

    Gilbert Fitz Reinfred. Often referred to in his charters in a more complete way as Gilbert son of Roger Fitz Reinfred. (Reinfred seems to have been his grandfather.) His ancestors are thought to have also used the name or title of "De Bruere".

    Gilbert was William de Lancaster II's son-in-law, but sometimes dubiously said to be a distant relative of the de Lancasters, with various groundless connections between Reinfrid, Taillebois and Workington being spread over the internet.

    More seriously, he is argued to have been the first Lord of Kendal who was really a Baron of Kendal. He was an important man, who was constantly in the retinue of King Henry while in France in 1180-89. Later, he also took part in the incidents surrounding the creation of the Magna Carta in the time of King John, leading to his sons imprisonment during action taking place near Rochester. His children's marriages show a very strong alliance with yet another Anglo-Scottish dynasty, the "De Brus" family. He was Sheriff of Lancaster from 1205 to 1215.

    Gilbert married Hawise de Lancaster Bef 20 Jul 1189. Hawise (daughter of William de Lancaster and Helewise de Stuteville) died Aft Sep 1226. [Group Sheet]

    Shown in CP (XII/1, p. 739) as "da. and coh. of William de Lancaster (d. 1246), lord of Kendal, Westmorland." We are showing the ancestry for her given in Ancestral Roots, and also by Andrew Lancaster.

    "Hawise de Lancastre. William's heir. Perhaps the only child of William de Lancaster with his known wife Hawise de Stuteville. Became a ward of the 'perfect knight' William le Mareschal, and was eventually married to Gilbert Fitz Reinfrid, with the permission of king Henry II." [Andrew Lancaster, citation details below.]

    1. 3. Hawise de Lancaster

Generation: 4

  1. 8.  Adam II de Brus was born 1134, of Skelton, Yorkshire, England (son of Adam I de Brus and Agnes of Aumale); died 1196.

    Other Events:

    • Alternate death: 20 Mar 1196

    Adam married Juetta de Arches Aft 1169. Juetta (daughter of William de Arches) died Aft 1209. [Group Sheet]

  2. 9.  Juetta de Arches (daughter of William de Arches); died Aft 1209.

    Other Events:

    • Alternate death: Bef 1213


    Early Yorkshire Families (citation details below) says that Roger de Flamville was Juetta's second husband, and claims that her first husband was the earlier Adam de Brus who died in 1142 or 1143. But this creates a number of chronological problems. For instance, if Juetta married the older Adam de Brus, their daughter Isabel (wife of Henry de Percy, d. 1198) could not have been born later than ca. 1143, and would thus have been at least 103 years old when she died in 1246. It seems vastly more plausible that Juetta's first husband was Roger de Flamville, who died in 1169, and her second husband was the younger Roger de Brus who died in 1196. In this model, the estimated birth dates and known death dates of all her children by both husbands make much more sense.

    1. Isabel de Brus was born , of Skelton, Yorkshire, England; died Aft 1230.
    2. 4. Peter de Brus was born , of Skelton, Yorkshire, England; died 1222.

    From Roger fitz Reinfrid: His Family and Connections by John Watson:

    Roger fitz Reinfrid is said to have been a protégé of Richard de Lucy and may have entered his service in the 1160s. He was probably in royal service before Michaelmas 1169. He was employed from 1170 to 1174 with Richard de Lucy in the administration of Windsor. In July 1175, Henry II confirmed to Roger fitz Reinfrid a soke in London given to him by Earl Simon (de St. Liz, III) of Huntingdon. A case in the Curia Regis in 1204 shows that Roger exchanged land in Toft and Menthorpe, Lincolnshire with Earl Simon and Alice de Gant his wife in exchange for three parts of a knight's fee in Sutton and Beckingham, Lincolnshire and that Roger also held land in Holme, Lincolnshire granted to him by Robert de Gant.

    Roger was sheriff of Sussex from Michaelmas 1176 to March 1187 and sheriff of Berkshire in 1188. In January 1176, he was appointed as a justice itinerant in Kent, Surrey, Hampshire, Sussex, Oxfordshire and Berkshire. By 1181, he was one of the regular justices sitting at Westminster. In March 1182, he was one of the witnesses to the will of Henry II, together with his brother Walter de Coutances, archdeacon of Oxford. He continued to be a justice in eyre throughout the reign of Henry II and into the reign of Richard I. Roger died before Michaelmas 1196 when Reinfrid son of Roger occurs as his father's heir.

    Roger married Alice Foliot. [Group Sheet]
