About Sir Reginald Awbrey

One of the 13 knights who assisted Bernard Newmarch in the conquest of Brecknock, where he is reputed to have won Abercynfig and Slwch (Slough). He is said to have been the son of Saunders de Sancto Alberico, who was reputedly the brother of Alberic, Earl of Bologne and Earl Marshal of France.

In the 'History of Brecknockshire,' by Mr. Theophilus Jones, mention is made of the following twelve Norman knights, and the names of the manors they each received. To Sir Reginald Aubrey, the manors of Abercunricke and Slough; to Sir John Scull, Bolgoed and Crai; to Sir Peter Gunter, Gunterstone; to Sir Humphrey Ffrergill, Crickhowell; to Sir Miles Piegard, Ischergrog; to Sir John Waldebieffe, Lanbanffoag; to Sir Humphrey Sollers, Treduston; to Sir Richard de Boyes, Treboyer; to Sir Walter Havard, Pontwillim; to Sir Hugh Surdnan, Aberisker; to Sir Philip Walwin, The Hay; and to Sir Richard Paglin the manor of Peytyns

Sir Reginald (Rinalt) de Sancto Alberico, or Awbrey, was his son. He is believed to have been one of Bernard Newmarche's chief captains when the Normans invaded South Wales. He was supposedly present at the defeat of Rhys ap Tudor, Prince of Deheubarth in 1093. Tradition holds that he married a daughter of the de Clare family. He received the manors of Abercynrig and Slwch as his reward.
