It is really something to sing and dance about.
Dig up those old bones and get them dancing!

Change the two party system
so people against something like abortion
but for something like environmental protection never again get bigger and badder storms
and two bankrupting wars instead.

Make the Electoral College a permanent government body with seat distribution proportional to the party tally in each state and give it the right to approve cabinet members and under secretaries instead of the US Senate!

: Bruce of Brix, Bruce of Skelton
Br31. Robert de Bruges Castellan of Bruges 1046, emigrated to Normandy 1051
Space for your banner! 'Baronage' suggests that this Robert may have been a younger son of Lambert I, Count of Louvain after considering heraldic and other clues but remains a reasonable hypothesis. It is thought that this Robert settled in Normandy at a place which became known as Brix, a corruption of the family name.
m Emma of Brittany dau of Allan, Earl of Brittany
Br30-1. Adelm or Allan de Brus, Sn de Brix remained in Normandy
Sources disagree whether the son of Robert de Bruges who was ancestor of the Bruces of Scotland was called Adelm/Allan or Robert, although most seem to agree that it was the second son who was that ancestor.
Br30-1-1 Adam de Brus, Sn de Brix
Br31 =30 =29 Robert de Brusse came to England with William the Conqueror in 1066, d c1080 Various sources, including TSP, show this Robert as the Robert who married Emma of Brittany. However, because we have seen that sources which look before the Robert who came to England some of which appear reasonable have attributed her to the previous generation, we provisionally follow them and presume that TSP and others attributed Emma of Brittany to the wrong generation. BLG1850 shows this Robert's wife as Agnes de St. Clair who is also mentioned by 'Baronage'' in its articles which suggest the descent of this family from the House of Louvain.
m Agnes de St. Clair dau of Waldonius, Earl of St. Clair
Br29-1 William de Brusse
Br30 =29 =28 Adam de Brusse of Skelton, Lord of Cleveland d 1098
m ? Emma de Ramsay dau of Sir William de Ramsay
Br29 =28 =27 Robert de Bruce, Lord of Skelton and 1st of Annandale d 05.1141
m Agnes de Paganell b c1076, dau of Fulk de Paganell
Br27 Adam le Brus, Lord of Skelton b c1021, d 1143
m Jueta or Ivetta or Yvette d'Arches dau of William d'Arches =Guillaume Giffard, Viscount d'Arques
Many of the details of this part of the family have been found on sundry web sites which are not always convincing as to dates, etc..
Br26 Adam le Brus, Lord of Skelton d 1196
m1?. Joanna de Meschines dau of Ranulph 'de Gernons' de Meschines, 2nd Earl of Chester
m2?. Agnes or Hawise of Aumale dau of Etienne, Count of Aumale
Some web sites show Joanna as mother of Piers but others show Agnes as his mother. There are others still that indicate that she was a wife of Piers but the dates lead us to prefer to show her of this generation with a preference but no real reason to indicate that Agnes was mother of Piers simply because the perhaps unreliable dates indicate that her first husband died about 1150/2 so she may have promptly married Adam and produced Piers. On the other hand, of course, the dates could also support the view that Adam took another wife soon after Joanna had died soon after giving birth to Piers. This matter will be reviewed further in due course.
Br25 Piers Brus, lord of Skelton b c1152 ?, d c1222
m Joan le Grammaire b c1158, dau of Richard le Grammaire

Br23-1 Peter/Piers Brus, lord of Skelton b c1209, dsp 18.09.1272
