== Biography ==:: Lord of Gower, also of Bramber, Sussex, Buckingham and Bourton, Buckinghamshire, etc., son and heir, born about 1197 (aged 22 in 1219). He was released from captivity with his three brothers in Jan. 1218,due to the influence of their uncle, Gilbert de Clare, Earl of Gloucester and Hertford. He promptly initiated proceedings in the king's court against his uncle, Reynold de Brewes. He claimed by hereditary right the castle and lordship of Bramber, Sussex, and the lordships of Brecon, Elfael, Builth, Radnor, Gwent, Abergavenny, Grosmont, Skenfrith, and White Castle.
