About Eleanor de Bohun (de Braose)

from www.geneajourney.com/braose.html:

Her parents were Sir William de Braose [g], Lord of Abergavenny, b bef 1197, Brecknock (Breconshire), Wales, d 2 May 1230, Wales. He md Eva Marshal 2 May 1220, Pembrokeshire, Wales, daughter of Sir William Marshal, Earl of Pembroke, Mareschal of England, and Isabel de Clare.

NOTE: the spelling as Braose is the form which, according to Cokayne's The Complete Peerage, was adopted in peerages. CP states that "in some 25 early references to this name, not in charter latin, it appears as Breouse, Breuse, or Brewys", and additionally, that the descendants of William (d aft 1179) spelled the name as Brewes. Another version of this surname is seen in Weis' Ancestral Roots and Magna Charta Sureties, as Braiose, and is perhaps the "purest" form of the name; CP states that the family's Norman home was "Briouze-Saint-Gervais (formerly Braiose)".
