"Sir William de Brewes, 1st Lord Brewes, died at Findon, Sussex 6 Jan. 1290/1, and was buried at Sell, Sussex 15 January following." (Findon is about 5 miles west of Bramber.)
There are a variety of spellings of William's last name, and no single one is "right".
Richardson standardized to Brewes, which is also the main heading in Cokayne's Complete Peerage, although the text for William spells it Breuse, noting that he was summoned "by writs directed Willelmo de Breuse, Brehuse, or Brewes. He is recorded to have sat in Parl. of Apr.-May 1290,... whereby he may be held to have been Lord Brewose." Cawley uses Briose for the father and Breuse for William.
Other sources prefer Braose, for instance:
The Calendars of the Close Rolls for the reign of Henry III
Keats-Rohan's Domesday Descendants, referring to other members of the family
Entries for the family in the Oxford Dictionary of National Biography mainly use "Briouze [Braose]".
Some sources are inconsistent, but mostly use the Braose form - for instance:
Farrer's Honors and Knights' Fees, which gives several spellings but mostly uses Braose, including for the William of this profile
Frederick Lewis Weis's Magna Carta Sureties, which also uses more than one spelling but generally uses Braose for the family
Richardson does not give locations of William's three marriages, which the datafields show as Gower, Wales (for Aline, in 1245); Cadbury, Somersetshire, England (for Agnes, in 1268); and England (for Mary). Richardson gives a date only for William's third marriage: "in or before 1271". The date for his second marriage shown in the datafields (1268) is based on his first wife's death, which Richardson has as "before 1267/8". The date for his first marriage is based on William "being of full age" in 1245.
Richardson does not list a daughter Eleanor, but does say that William and Mary had "two or more daughters", naming only Margaret. Perhaps Eleanor was one of those other daughters.
