Robert De Caen
"Robert, the first Earl of Gloucester, was the son of King Henry I., and was born in Caen, France. Upon the occasion of his marriage his father gave to him large properties in Normandy, Wales, and England, so that he was one of the richest men of his time. Among these properties was the 'honour of Gloucester' which the King formed into the earldom that afterwards became so distinguished. Robert was intimately associated with his father in all that monarch's battling in Normandy and elsewhere. He was his father's most beloved son, and was preferred far beyond any other member of the family. He was the only child present at his father's death, and following that event he was urged by his father's followers and by others to lay claim to and contest the crown of England. ... He died in Bristol, October 31, 1147. He married Mabel, or Matilda, or Sybil, daughter of Robert Fitz Hamon and had by her six children" (Weeks, pp. 258- 259).

According to Geni.com: Master Profile for Robert de Brus 1st Lord of Skelton and 1st Lord of Annandale, "There is no evidence that a Robert de Brus accompanied William the Conqueror; this is the first reliably documented Robert Brus." Geni.com further posits that Robert had 2 wives: Agnes and Agness Pagnel. It is unclear by which spouse his sons were, but authorities usually give her as Agnes de Paynel. Geni.com also indicates Robert's father as unknown though other resources (e.g., Weeks) have it well documented. "Robert de Brusee, third of the name ... was born about 1078 and was the head of the barony of Bruce and the first Baron of Skelton and Annandale. He assisted Edgar, son of Malcolm Canmore, against 'Duncan, his base brother, who had usurped the crown. ... The early years of Robert de Brusee were passed at the court of King Henry I. of England. At the same time Earl David of Scotland resided there and a close friendship sprang up between the two young nobles. When David came to the throne he granted, by charter to his friend, the land of Annan - dale, which embraced the largest part of the county of Dumfries. He had also been associated with David in military adventures, serving with him during t'he conquest and part of the period of his government of Cumbria, the district com- prising the Lothians and 'Galloway that had been bestowed upon David after the death of his brother Prince Edgar. ... The time came, however, when these two friends were parted. King David I., supporting the cause of Maud the Empress, his niece, declared war against King Stephen of England, and advanced with a great army to Northallerton in Yorkshire to meet the forces of the English monarch. Thurstan, the aged and infirm Archbishop of York, although he could not personally take the field against the invader, summoned the nobles of his diocese to repair to the support of the standard with all their powers" (Weeks, pp. 58-59). "Robert de Brusee died in 1141 and was buried in Guisburn Priory" (Weeks, p. 61). "He married, first, Agnes Pagnel, daughter of Fulk Pagnel; second, Agnes of Annandale" (Weeks, p. 62).   Ranulph "De Gernon" De Meschines,
