  Some web sites identify William's wife as Beatrix de Vaux, some going on to describe her as daughter of Rainald de Dunstanville, Earl of Cornwall, by his wife Beatrice (dau of William FitzRichard). However, TCP (Wake) reports that, whilst it is possible that William's wife might have been that same Beatrice (FitzWilliam), Dugdale identifies her as Earl Rainald's mistress ...

It is not unlikely that the following family was not connected to the one shown on Brampton01 and successive pages.
Bernard de Brampton (a c1135)
1. Brian de Brampton
  m. _ Devereux (dau of Walter Devereux)
  A. Brian de Brampton
  m. Matilda (dau of John de S'c'o Valerico)
  i. John de Brampton of Brampton and Stannage
Visitation reports that John married the Matilda, daughter of William de Brewes (Braose) of Brecknok, who later married Roger Mortimer of Wigmore. Neither the Braose nor the Mortimer records we have seen mention that that Matilda (Maud) was married before she married Roger Mortimer and the dates make that seem unlikely. The connection we make is to a Maud of 2 generations earlier and is supported by a web site on the Braose family.
