Aubrey (Alberic) de Ver, Sheriff of Berkshire (b by 1040, d c1112)
BE1883 identifies his wife, Beatrix, as "Countess of Ghisnes in her own right" but TCP says her "parentage is unknown". It is noted that Aubrey's grandson, the 1st Earl, married a Beatrice of Guisnes, which BE1883 does not, so we presume that BE1883 confused the generations. We follow TCP.
