 ************************************************************************** ************
  John de Braose, Lord of Bramber and Gower
  Born: 1198
 Died: 1232
  Nicknamed "Tadody" by the Welsh when he was hidden in Gower as a child after King John had killed his father and grandmother, he was later in the custody of Engelard de Cigogny (castellan of Windsor) along with his brother Giles. Cigogny was ordered to give the two boys up to William de Harcourt in 1214. At this time John became separated from his brother. He was present at the signing of Magna Carta in 1215.
  John disputed his uncle Reginald's claim to the Braose lands, sometimes resorting to arms. Llewelyn helped him to secure Gower (1219). In 1221, with the advice and permission of Llewelyn, he repaired his castle of Abertawy (Swansea, right) or Seinhenydd. He purchased the Rape of Bramber from Reginald and his son, William, in 1226. In that year John confirmed the family gifts to Sele Priory, near Bramber, and to the Abbey of St. Florent, Saumur, and added others. After the death of Reginald (1228) he became Lord of Skenfrith, Grosmont and Whitecastle, the three Marcher castles, by charter from the king but he lost these in 1230 to Hugh de Burgh at the same time as Gower became a subtenancy of de Burgh's Honour of Carmarthen and Cardigan.
