Three of the children of John de Braose are recorded in a contemporary genealogy in MS Cotton Julius D x. (Richard is not recorded.)

John and Llywelyn remained in the care of their mother, who remarried to Walter de Clifford. They are afterwards associated with tenements which had previously been held by Cliffords. (John at Culminton, Llywelyn at Sinton.)

A writ for novel disseisin was issued against Walter Clifford in 1259 for a tenement in Syneton. The same person issued a writ against Llywelyn de Braose in 1270 about a tenement in Cyneton. The case was heard in 1272. (Assizes 56 Hen III) Llywelyn called John Giffard and his wife Matilda to warranty. (Walter de Clifford was Llywelyn's stepfather, Matilda his halfsister.)
