Name: Robert de BROOKSBY , of Melton 1
Birth: ABT 1310 in Brooksby, Melton Mowbray, Leicestershire, England
Death: Deceased in Melton Mowbray, Leicestershire, England
The following is copied from the website "Brooksby, The Old Family", www.brooksby.org/family/old-family.html:
Robert de Brooksby held land in Melton in 1340. As this holding was referred to later by those who must have been his heirs, it is reasonable to suppose that he was the father of John (app. 1335-140O) whom the family counted as its founder.
Note: I am putting Robert's origin as Brooksby (which is near Melton & probably where the family got its name), and as Robert Abney implies by naming him "de Brooksby".
