He [Hugh de Mortimer] married, before 1210, Eleanor (Annor), daughter of William DE BRAOSE (BREWES or BRIOUZE), by Maud DE ST. VALERY. He died s.p.s., 20 November 1227, and was buried at Wigmore. His widow became a recluse (g), and was living 26 January 1240/1. [Complete Peerage IX:274-5, (transcribed by Dave Utzinger)]
[b ]Although his wife, Annor de Braose, was at this time in prison, a victim of John's bitter persecution of her family. She was liberated on the King's return in October 1214, having been, it would seem, in captivity since she was taken, with her mother and her eldest brother and his sons, in Scotland in July 1210. Her mother and eldest brother were starved to death in the dungeons of Corfe (or Windsor) in 1210.
(g) Her sister "Loretta, Countess of Leicester" also became a recluse. Their retirement from the world was probably caused by the horrible fate of their mother and brother.
