  • Notes 
    • 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:

      Ancestral Roots, 88-28:
      28. HAWISE (or HELWISE) DE LANCASTER, m. PIERS (PETER) DE BRUS (136-26), d. bef. 1247, Crusader, Lord of Skelton, son of Piers de Brus and Joan le Grammaire. (CP V: 269; VCH Lanc. I: 357-366.)

      Ancestral Roots, 136-25 and 136-26:
      25. AGNES, m. (1) William de Roumare, d. 1151; m. (2) Piers (Peter) I de Brus, Lord of Skelton, d. Feb 1218/9, son of Adam de Brus, by Joan le Grammaire, dau. Richard le Grammaire of Knottington, co. York. (West Winter XIII.84; ES II/46; CP V: 269, VII 373.)
      26. PIERS (PETER) DE BRUS, d. bef. 1222, bur. Guisborough, Lord of Skelton, co. York, Crusader; m. abt. 1210/15, HAWISE (or HELWISE) DE LANCASTER (88-28). (CP V: 267; West Winter, XIV.145; VCH Lanc. I: 357-366; Bank I: 431-432; Farrar, EYC II:15, III: 87.)

      Ancestral Roots, 184B-8:
      8. SIR WALTER DE FAUCONBERGE, 1st Lord Fauconberge, lord of Rise & Withernwick in Holderness, d. 1/2 Nov 1304; m. by Nov, 1243, AGNES DE BRUS (136-27), d. abt. 1280, dau. & coh. PIERS (PETER) II DE BRUS (136-26), d. 1222, Lord of Skelton, co. York, and HAWISE (or HELEWISE) DE LANCASTER (88-28). (CP V: 267-269; Clay, 69.)
