  • ID: I12342
  • Name: John BROCAS , of Clewer 1 2
  • Sex: M
  • Birth: ABT 1295 in Clewer, Windsor, Berkshire, England
  • Death: 15 JAN 1364/65 in Wokefield, Stratfield Mortimer, Berkshire, England
  • Note:
    Douglas Richardson states that John was of Windsor; however the Britannia Biographies website states he was probably born at Clewer, which is near Windsor. Supposedly John may have even helped architect some of the additions to Windsor Castle.

    John was given Wokefield Manor, Berkshire & lands in Donemowe, Essex in 1338 by Edward III; lands that had previously been held by Amy, daughter of Piers de Gaveston; this while Amy was still alive. [Paul C. Reed]

    According to the Froyle town website, John was also given a manor in Froyle, Hampshire. The website indicates that the Brocas were newly from Gascony, which conflicts with the inscription on the tomb of Bernard Brocas (John's son), who was buried in Westminster Abbey in 1395 (see notes under him).
