About Agnes Lnu, 2nd wife

See discussion tab: Briefly I have detached Agnes from her parents because 2nd wife of Robert I de Bruce, Agnes name unknown, was thought by some to be Agnes Bainard but current thinking does not agree.

[Three possible] brothers, parents not known: 1. ROBERT [I] de Brus (-11 May 1141, bur Gysburne/Gisborough Priory). The manuscript history of the founders of Gysburne/Gisborough Priory records that “Robertus de Bruse…miles de Normannia” became “domini Castri de Skelton, Merkes, Uplythum, S. Westyby et Brudone, dominus de Danby, Levyngton et Parum, dominus de Kendall, et dominus Vallis Anandiæ”[899]. The manuscript history of the Bruce family of Carleton records that “primus Brus de Carleton…Robertus de Brus” came to England with William “the Conqueror”[900], although this is not possible chronologically assuming that the text refers to Robert who died in 1141. A charter of King Henry II records donations to York St Mary, including the donation of land “in Apilton…et Hornby…Midelton” by “Robertus de Brus”[901]. Lord of Skelton. "…Roberto de Brus…" witnessed the charter dated to [1120] under which "David comes filius Malcolmi Regis Scottorum" founded the abbey of Selkirk, listed first witness after the members of the royal family[902]. “Robertus de Brus” confirmed donations to the canons of Bridlington by charter dated to [1120/35], witnessed by “…Ernaldus de Perceio…Petrus de Brus…”[903]. "Militum meorum Roberti de Brus…" witnessed the charter dated to [1123] under which "David comes" made grants to the church of Glasgow with the consent of "Matildis uxoris mea"[904]. "David… Rex Scottorum" granted Annandale to "Roberto de Brus" by charter dated to [1124][905]. “Robertus de Brus” donated property to St Mary’s, York by charter dated to [1125/35], witnessed by “Ada filio meo, Petro de Brus…”[906]. The 1130 Pipe Roll records "Rob de Bruis" in Yorkshire, Northumberland (three times)[907]. “Robertus de Brus…Agnes uxor mea, filiusque noster Adam de Brus” donated property to Middlesburgh priory by undated charter[908]. “Robertus de Brus…et Agnes uxor mea et Adam filius noster” founded Gysburne/Gisborough Priory, Yorkshire by undated charter[909]. The manuscript history of the founders of Gysburne/Gisborough Priory records that “Robertus de Brus pater” died “1141 V Id Mai” and was buried “apud Gysburghe in Cleveland”[910]. The obituary of Gysburne/Gisborough priory records the death “V Id Mai” of "Roberti de Brus fundator hujus domus"[911]. m [firstly] AGNES Paynell, daughter of FULK Paynell & his wife [Beatrix ---] (-18 Nov


). The manuscript history of the Bruce family of Carleton records that “primus Brus de Carleton…Robertus de Brus” married “Agnetam filiam Fulconis Paynell” and received “manerium de Carleton” from his father-in-law[912]. “Robertus de Brus…Agnes uxor mea, filiusque noster Adam de Brus” donated property to Middlesburgh priory by undated charter[913]. “Robertus de Brus…et Agnes uxor mea et Adam filius noster” founded Gysburne/Gisborough Priory, Yorkshire by undated charter[914]. A charter of King Henry II, dated to [1176/86], confirmed donations to the canons of Gysburne/Gisborough, among which a donation by “Agnetis uxoris Roberti de Brus”[915]. The obituary of Gysburne/Gisborough priory records the death “XIV Kal Dec” of "Agnetis Brus uxoris fundatoris nostri"[916]. [m secondly AGNES, daughter of --- (-after 1155). The 1155 Pipe Roll records "Agnes de Bruis…p filio suo"[917]. This entry suggests that Agnes represented her son, who must have been a minor at the time, in relation to the property for which the return was made. If that is correct, her son was presumably Robert [II] de Brus, who must have been considerably younger than his [half-]brother Adam [I], and so probably born from a different wife.] Robert de Brus & his [first] wife had one child:

a) ADAM [I] de Brus (-[20 Mar] [1143], bur Gysburne/Gisborough Priory). “Robertus de Brus” donated property to St Mary’s, York by charter dated to [1125/35], witnessed by “Ada filio meo, Petro de Brus…”[918]. - see below. Robert de Brus & his [first/second] wife had one child:

b) AGATHA de Brus . A charter dated to [1145/54] records the dowry granted by “Robertus de Brus” to “Agathe filie sue” on her marriage to “Radulfo Ribaldi filio”, witnessed by “…Petro de Brus, Ernaldo de Perci…Herveo Ribaldi filio…”[919]. Although this charter is dated to after the death of Robert de Brus (died 1141), the chronology of the family of Agatha’s husband suggests that Agatha must have been his daughter and not the daughter of Robert [II] de Brus his son, the marriage having taken place many years before the charter. [920]m RALPH "Taillebois", son of RIBALD & his wife Beatrix Taillebois. Robert de Brus & his [second] wife had one child:

c) ROBERT [II] de Brus ([1135/40]-[17 Feb, 26 Aug, or 4 Dec] after [1170/90]). The manuscript history of the founders of Gysburne/Gisborough Priory names “Robertus de Bruse…miles de Normannia” and “Roberto de Bruse filio suo juniori”, adding that the latter was captured during the Anglo-Scottish wars[921].
