Birth: 1083
County Durham, England
Death: May 11, 1141
North Yorkshire, England

Robert de Brus was the 1st Lord of Cleveland and Annandale.
He was granted Skelton in Yorkshire, by King Henry I in 1106, and had a charter from King of Scots, David I, for Annandale about 1124. In 1138, shortly before the Battle of the Standard, he renounced his allegiance to Scotland and resigned his lands to his younger son, Robert.
There were two sons
Robert de Brus, 2nd Lord of Annandale, who inherited the Lordship of Annandale.
Adam de Brus, whose descendants continued to hold lands in England as Lords of Skelton. When Peter de Brus III, last Bruce Lord of Skelton, died in 1272, his sisters were co-heiresses. One of them, Laderia, carried Carleton to her marriage with John de Bellew, whose daughter, Sybil married Sir Miles de Stapleton (k. 1314, at the Battle of Bannockburn), whose family were subsequently designated "of Carleton". This appears to confirm the de Brus and de Pagnall of Carleton connection. Sir Miles Stapleton's son and heir, Sir Gilbert (d. 1321) married Agnes, daughter of Bryan FitzAlan, Lord FitzAlan, and a granddaughter of Devorguilla of Galloway (d. 1290) wife of John de Balliol, Lord of Barnard Castle, whose son was King John of Scotland
