- 29. SIR JOHN DE MOWBRY, KNT, 2nd Lord Mowbray, said to have been born 4 Sept. 1286, d. York, 23 Mar. 1321/2; m. Swansea, 1298, Aline (Aliva) de Braose, d. by 20 July 1331, dau. and coh. of William de Braose (Lord Braose/Brewes), lord of Gower in Wales and Bramber in Sussex; she m. (2) Sir Robert de Peshale, liv. Nov. 1342. (CP IX: 277-280; Sanders, 146-147; DNB).
- William de Braose, (sometimes William de Briouze, William de Breuse, William de Brewes or William de Brewose; c. 1260–1326) was the second Baron Braose, as well as Lord of Gower and Lord of Bramber. He was held as a hostage after being captured in 1264 during the Second Barons' War and records of some of his childhood expenses survive from his time as a hostage. He first entered royal service in 1286 and, in 1291, he succeeded his father as baron. He continued in royal military service, serving in Scotland as well as in Wales. Protracted disputes over his lands embroiled him throughout his life and at the end of his life helped spark a revolt against King Edward II of England's favourites, the Despensers. He married twice, and his heirs were his daughter Aline and his grandson John de Bohun. ....
- Braose was the son of William de Braose, 1st Baron Braose and his first wife, Aline, daughter of Thomas de Multon. He was likely born around 1260, as his age was given as about 46 in 1307. Other events prove that he was born prior to 1264, as he was captured in that year. This came about during the Second Barons' War (1264–1267) during the reign of King Henry III of England, as the elder Braose had sided with the king during Simon de Montfort's rebellion. The younger Braose was a hostage in the custody of Montfort's wife, Eleanor. Her household accounts include expenses related to the younger William's care. .... etc.
- The name of Braose's first wife was Agnes, but her family is not known. His second wife was Elizabeth, the daughter and heiress of Raymund de Sully. He had two daughters with his first wife, but no children with his second wife, who outlived him. It appears that there was a son named William, who was the subject of a military summons from King Edward in 1311, but nothing further is mentioned of him after 1315. In 1316 a settlement of William the father's estates made no mention of this son making it likely that the son died before this date.
- Braose died not long before 1 May 1326 and his heirs were his daughter Aline and his grandson John de Bohun. Aline, the elder daughter, married John de Mowbray and Richard de Peschale. The second daughter, Joan, married James de Bohun and Richard Foliot. Mowbray received the lands of Gower and Bramber before Braose's death.
- Braose was known as a man often in debt and as being unable to manage his cash flow well. Thomas Walsingham stated in his chronicle that Braose was "very rich by descent but a dissipater of the property left to him".
