Robert Bracey

Born: 1192 - Died: Unknown

The de Bracey were given lands by William The Conqueror in England but originated from Normandy in France.

Robert was born in approximately 1192 and married Maude (perhaps de Cantilupe who he accompanied to Scotland in 1252). Throughout his life he held many positions of high office but he was involved with John Esturmy in Ashton and as a punishment had his lands removed.

In 1265 he held a third of a Carucate (which was a parcel of land measured by the amount of land tillable by a team of eight oxen in ploughing season) at Ashton, in the Hundred of Oswaldelawe (a Hundred is equivalent to a county today).
