Giles de Braose, the son of William by Agnes de Molis his second wife, inherited the manor of Knolton in Dorset from his mother, and had license to alienate it from his uncle Roger de Molis, a. Edw. I. He also held two-thirds of the manor of Buckingham, with the hamlet of Bourton belonging to the said manor, the other third being in dower to Mary his mother-in-law. He was twice married, first to Beatrice, the daughter and heir of John de St. Eloria, by whom he had only one daughter; secondly, to Maud, daughter of Eustace de Whitney of the county of Hereford, by whom he had a son named John, and a daughter Maud. At his death in 33 Edw. I. John his son and heir was only three years old; Lucy his daughter by the first wife, and sole heir to her mother, was of the age of seven, and inherited the manor of Crowell in the county of Oxford, which had belonged to her maternal grandfather, and whereof her father was tenant for life by the Law of England. Of this Lucy I have not found any further notice, except that in a. 6 Edw. II. she was the wife of Robert Mautravers. John was living a. 20 Edw. II. at the death of his grandmother, and inherited that third part of the manor of Buckingham which she held in dower, and the same year did homage for the whole of the said manor and of the hamlet of Bourton. He died without issue, and this inheritance passed to John Frome the son and heir of his sister Maud, wife of William Frome and by the heirs general of Frome into the families of Mussenden and Fillol.
