bullet  Information about this person:

• Background Information. 1197
Albino (Brito), William de (d. 1155-6), justiciar, was son and heir of Robert de Todeni, lord of Belvoir, and is supposed to have been named de Aubigny (Albini) from his place of birth, and to have been distinguished by the addition Brito from his namesake, the Pincerna, who belonged to a very different family. He assisted in the victory of Tenchebray in 1106 [Matt. Paris], and became high in favor with Henry I. In 1130 (not, as Dugdale states, under Stephen) he appears as an itinerant justice, and on Henry's death he espoused the cause of his daughter. Stephen forfeited his lands, but subsequently restored them, and he lived to see the accession of Henry II. Foss wrongly states that he died in 1135.
