1. William de Beauchamp - was born about 1105, lived in Elmley Castle, Worcestershire, England and died in 1269 .
William married Maud de Braose in 1151 while living in Gower, Glamorganshire, Wales. Maud was born about 1109, lived in Gower, Glamorganshire, Wales. She died after 1151 .

Maud - - Some sources have shown Maud's father as William de Braose, born abt 1084.
 
However, other sources have found no hard evidence that William de Beauchamp married a Maud de Braose.
 
See the following notes:

     
    William de Beauchamp (d.1170) of Salwarpe and Elmley allegedly married Bertha dau. of William de Braose (d.1211). The latter's great grandson, William de Braose (d.1230) of Abergavenny had a dau. & coheir Maud (d.1301) who married Roger de Mortimer (d.1282) of Wigmore. Saunders gives no marriage of a Bertha de Braose (or of a Maud de B) to William de Beauchamp. Turton does give the marriage of Bertha and William based on information from the first edition (1910) of Cokayne's *Complete Peerage*. As far as I can tell the second edition omits any reference to the early Beauchamps. B Burke's *Dormant, Abeyant, Forfeited and Extinct Peerages of the British Empire* (London, 1883) p.29 has William Beachamp marrying a Maud de Braose. Since (1) Burke is to be treated with extreme caution, (2)it seems that the editors of the second edition of *The Complete Peerage* deleted material on the early Beauchamps and (3) Saunders notes marriages between the baronial families dealt with but omits this marriage, the upshot would seem to be that there is no hard evidence of a Braose marriage to William Beauchamp (d.1170).
