John de Brewes is in a trail badged by the Magna Carta Project to surety baron Richard de Clare (see text below).



John was the son of Giles de Braose/Brewes and Maud de Whitney.[1][2] He was born on 26 May 1301.[1][2]

A settlement for his marriage to Sarah, last name unknown, was dated 1325.[1][2] They married that year: in 1325 John and his wife Sara made a settlement of two-thirds of the manor of Buckingham, Buckinghamshire on a Robert Spigurnell.[3] They had one known child:

In 1326 he was given possession of the remaining third of the manor Buckingham, Buckinghamshire which had previously been dower property of Mary de Ros, third wife of his grandfather: William de Braose/Brewes.[1][2] According to the Inquisition Post Mortem for Mary de Ros,

"Bukyngham. A third part of the manor, together with a third part of the hamlet of Burton pertaining thereto (extent given), held in dower of the inheritance of John son and heir of Giles de Brewosa, by the assignment of the said Giles, without any service. The said John, who is of full age, is her next heir of the lands &c., aforesaid."[4]

John died a little before 24 August 1349.[1][2]
