  • ID: I30772
  • Name: Sire de BROCAS , of Beaurepaire, Sir
  • Sex: M
  • Birth: BEF 1039 in Brocas, Ariege, Midi-Pyreneees, France
  • Death: Deceased in Beaurepaire Manor, Sherborne St. John, Hampshire, England
  • Note:
    According to the inscription on the tomb of Bernard Brocas, d. 1395, in Westminster Abbey, he was descended from a younger son of the Earl (Count) of Foix, who came over to England during the time of William the Conqueror, and received lands in Hampshire for his services, upon which he then built Beaurepaire.

    I am depicting him as a younger son of Pierre-Bernard Comte de Foix, and brother of Bernard Comte de Foix, reflecting the commonality of the name "Bernard" within the Brocas line. It is more than a coincidence that there is a town named Brocas, near Foix, in the French Department of Ariege, which is just north of the Spanish border in the Pyrenees. I have not found his name in the lists of Companions of William the Conqueror, at the Battle of Hastings, but not all who were present are listed, and many of the names are garbled. There is a listing for "Guillaume, Sire de Rupierre", which has connections with Pierre-Bernard his possible father, and also Beaurepaire (meaning good/pleasant retreat), the name of his manor house/estate.
