William (Briwere) de Briwere was a member of aristocracy in the British Isles.


It seems that it was in Hampshire that this family originated: William held lands outside the west gate of Winchester. The family's interests, however, probably extended outside the bounds of this county, since William founded the nunnery of Polsloe, Devon.
