Name: Adam de BRUS , of Cleveland 1 2
Birth: ABT 1072 in Bruis Castle, Brix, Manche, Normandy, France
Death: Deceased in Cleveland, Durham, England
Death: 1080 2
Phil Moody, citing Collins Peerage, 1959, states that Adam came in 1050 with Emma, daughter of Richard I of Normandy. Emma was wife of Aethelred "The Unready". This is clearly impossible given the known dates in the pedigree. If anyone came with Emma, it was Adam's grandfather Robert. Actually malinda, in a posting to SGM, 23 Jun 2002, states that it was grandfather Robert's brother Adam who came with Emma. Caveat Emptor.
Turton has Adam as son of Robert de Brus by Emma. Turton appears to skip the generation of Robert & Agnes de St. Clair. He has Robert, husband of Emma de Ramsay, d. 1080. This is the same death date as I have for Agnes de St. Clair.
