  • Notes 
    • VCH Northumberland (volume 4, "Manor of Brixworth") calls him brother, rather than father, of the wife of John de Verdun.

      "Simon son of Simon, probably the son of the rebel, held 2½ fees in Brixworth. In 1253 he had a grant of a weekly market to be held at Brixworth on Tuesdays, and a yearly fair there from 4 to 6 June. He is described as lord of Brixworth in 1262–3, his wife's name being given as Maud de Ralee. Simon supported the barons in their struggle against the Crown, and was captured at the battle of Northampton, his manor being committed to Henry de Boruhull on 21 April 1264. He received a safe conduct to go to court in August, 1265, and was finally pardoned in 1267. In 1276 Simon son of Simon had view of frankpledge, free warren, free fishery, and other liberties in Brixworth." [VCH Northamptonshire, citation details below.]
