Born possibly Brix Manche, near Cherbourg on the Cotentin Peninsula in Normandy or
Possibly Castellan of Bruges Castle 1046 who immigrated to Normandy 1051
Brother of Adam de Bruis
Married Emma daughter of Alain Count of Brittany
Children of Robert de Brus and Agnes :
- Alain de la Brusee lord of Brusee castle married Agnes daughter of Simon Montfort Earl of Evreux
- Robert de Brusse
A connection showing that this Robert may have been a younger son of Lambert I, Count of Louvain has been suggested by http://www.baronage.co.uk (‘Baronage’) after consideration of heraldic and other clues. It should not be viewed as having been ‘proved’ however, it does seem more plausible than other ideas that have been put forward.
