Following is a post to SGM, by Joe, 7 Jun 1210:
MARK (Marke, Marcus, Marci) de WALESBREU.  Born before 1258 as he was an adult in 7 Edward 1 (1278/1279) when Mark De Walebreus had an assize of mort d’ancestor regarding two parts of the manors of
Walebreus and Helen (Elem?) against William De Botrell. [2,3] As Marke le Walebreus he witnessed a deed in 1287/8 involving the wardship of John Le Sor. [4,5] ‘Thomas Chiverton’s Book of Obits’ identifies him as “Mark Whalesbreu, son of the said William.” Hal Bradley says he died December 1300, though this date doesn’t appear in ‘Thomas Chiverton’s Book of Obits’ which is given as the source; this also doesn’t mesh with statements by Ronny Bodine that his son William was a ward of William Bottreux by 1293. [6,7] It may be an inaccurate assumption that William De Walesborough was a ward of Bottreux when he married (at age 5) in 1293. Mark was certainly dead by 3 Jan 1301 when John le Brun was presented to the church of St. Mawgan by reason of the custody of the land and heir of Mark de Whalesbrewe belonging to the King through the death of Edmund, Earl of
Cornwall.  In 1303 and 1306, the heirs of Marci De Welebraus held 2 parts of Hudno, and the heirs of Mathei (sic) de Walesbreu held Lanmaylwen.  In 1346, John de Walesbreu (his grandson) was noted as holding 2 parts of Udno which had been held by Marcus de Walesbreu. 
He married Matilda Arundell, the 'daughter of the Lord Ralph Arundell' so a daughter of Sir Ralph Arundell and Eve De La Roche.
i. JOHN de WALESBREU. Dead by 1302 when his brother William became heir to the Whalesborough lands.
ii. Sir WILLIAM de WALESBREU. See next.
iii. JOAN de WALESBREU. m. Roger Reskimer, kt., son and heir of Richard Reskimer, kt. by Alice Prideaux. Joan died 18 March 1346; Roger died 2 April 1351.
