JACQUES LE BRABANCON.
Belonged to a family of Brabant, which settled in Normandy. From this house descended Jacques de Brabancon, who followed duke William to the conquest of England, and was called the "Great Warrior." His descendants settled in Surrey at Betchworth and later appear in Leicestershire. The family flourished in England for many centuries, from whom descended the earls of Meath and the baronets Brabazon.
