[Magna Charta Sureties]

Note: I am not sure how to read the above. MCS cannot mean that Agatha "dsp" because in the same statement she is said to have a daughter (Alice) by her husband William le Rus.

(Alice LE RUS Heiress of Stinton & Ludborough was born on 25 Dec 1245 in Stinton in Sall, Aylsham, Norfolk, England 9516 and died before 28 Jan 1300-1301 in Ludborough, Louth, Lincolnshire, England 9515,9516.)

Primary sources needed. Not listed in FMG MedLands data base as a child of William IV de Braose and Mathilda de Clare.

The above Project/Medlands(see link at the top) only follows the eldest son of John Tadody de Braose(pronounced Brews or Brew{French way} namely continuing the William de Braose line which then became extinct in the male line of William son of John and taken over by the wealthiest lines of England like Bohun. "Tadody's" younger son Sir Richard de Braose d1292 and buried Woodbridge Priory, Suffolk found his own way of continuing the Braose lordships by marrying Alice le Rus(from Norman family) heiress of Stinton and Ludborough. Stinton Hall and lands were in Sall(e) 5 miles west of Aylsham, 12 miles NW of Norwich. They later also held Topcroft, 12 miles South of Norwich. They were then heirs to Ludborough also which was in Lincolnshire just south of the River Humber estuary, near Louth. A printed source for the name of Sir RICHARD BRAOSE of Stinton is given in the photo at both Media and Sources. It has a printed family tree of the Lord Colville family showing the marriage of Richard's daughter, Margaret, to a member of the Colville family which then had issue. Margaret also had married a Devereaux which led to many outstanding family lineages. Margaret's Colville marriage leads to a marriage with the Ufford family which leads down later in this Braose family line to where Sir John de Braose marries a daughter in the same Ufford family

Project/Medlands does not follow this lineage of Stinton plus other lands [footnote 918 says source is CP II p304ff]. So we found through named Lords of Stinton, next Sir Giles de Braose d.1310 at Ludborough. He married Joane Beaumont heiress of Woodbridge, Suffolk. Their son was Sir John de Braose , Lord of Stinton (still). Born 1306, John married Agnes de Ufford and died 1370 again in Ludborough continuing to show the extent of their land holdings. And he was buried like his father at Woodbridge Priory in Suffolk. The next heir and son was John de Braose (Brewse) b1332 Stinton and d1394 in Sufflolk.. He married Agnes de Shardelowe (probably again Norman). Their son and heir was Sir Robert de Brewes/Braose of Stinton b1370 at Topcroft by Norwich d1424 in Sufflolk. So these are the successors to the Lordship of Stinton Hall which we have found through the researchers of the Brewer family who are persistent especially now through their YDNA Brewer Project. The next generation which is proven is through Sir Thomas de Braose. He was b1407 at their Topcroft home and died there also in 1492. He had many children by 2 wives and Mary Calthorpe had the son once again after centuries of absence named Sir William Braose of Stinton Hall b1441 at Stinton, Salle, Norlfolk d1489 in Suffolk. He married Elizabeth daughter of Sir John Hopton of Suffolk. The next son from the line which leads to America is another William but now taking the Brewe spelling and finally adding an R at the end to be more English rather than French Norman. With that change, and having an elder brother inheriting, William Brewer moved to living in Gloucestershire and Somerset establishing a new prominent family, the Brewers of Chard, Somerset with son Edward being born in exactly the year 1500 in Chard, Somerset. His son there was the well known Dr. William Brewer, Physician of Chard who is memorialized in the Anglican church in Chard. But they were soon to re-establish themselves in London and finally on to the new Virginia Colony by the James River. My mother was born to Harry and Hazel Brewer in Minnesota in 1920 and Harry was descendant of the Virginia Brewers. Most of this was researched and shared with our various cousins by my first cousin Willliam Brewer of California and our uncle Bob Brewer retired from the FBI of the USA. It has been a 45 year study journey by my cousins and myself.
