[NEWF421] Thureyitel aka Thurcytel de Neufmarche (son of [HARC301] Turquetil de Neufmarche, see HARCOURT-2).

[NEWF431] Geoffrey de Neufmarche (born c.1025) married [VALE332] Ada (daughter of Seigneur Richard, see SAINT-VALERIE).

[NEWF441] Bernard de Nova Mercato (born at Neufmarche, France, c.1070), married (born c.1092) [SAY2432] Agnes (see SAY BY ADOPTION).

Bernard made incursions into Wales, taking Glasbury (near Hay-on-Wye), then Bronllys. Welsh forces led by [RHYS351] Rhys ap Tewdwr (see SOUTH WALES PRINCES) marched towards Brecon, but were defeated by Bernard leading the Norman forces in battle near Brecon (1093), which marked the end of Welsh kingship in Wales. For his services he was created Marcher Lord of Brecknock (see MARCHES). Bernard built Brecon Castle, a simple motte and bailey structure. Bernard also held the motte and bailey defence at Hay-on-Wye and the later stone castle a short distance away, both evidently in use simultaneously for some time. The stone castle passed to Miles of Gloucester as the dowry of his daughter Sibyl.
