Birth of a son
William Braose III

Death about 1180


3rd Lord of Bramber Sheriff of Hereford

William was very fortunate in his marriage to Berta. All of her brothers died young without heirs so she brought a number of important lordships to the Braoses in 1166. These included Brecon and Aberg avenny. William became Sheriff of Hereford in 1174. His interest in Sussex was maintained as he confirmed the grants of his father and grandfather for the maintenance of Sele Priory and extended St. M ary's, Shoreham
