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)

  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.
