    PIERRE [II] de Grailly (-1356). Seigneur de Grilly, Rolle, Ville-la-Grand, Vicomte de Castillon, Captal de Buch {pagus south of Arcachon, Gironde, name derived from Latin Boii, capital of the civitas Boiatium, later a part of Novempopulania}, de iure uxoris, chevalier de la Jarretière[1063]. Edward II King of England wrote to “Arnaldi de Duro Forti militis” regarding his marriage to “Katerinam dominam de Sancta Basilica quondam uxorem Jordani de Insula” by charter dated 25 Feb 1326, and similarly to “Petro de Greylino vicecomiti Benangiarum et Castellionis”[1064]. Edward III King of England wrote to “vicecomiti de Benaugiarum...Johanni de Greily” (as well as other nobles in Gascony) congratulating them on their loyalty and good work (“vestræ devotionis affectus...fidelium nostrorum testimonia, set effectus operis...”) by charter dated 25 Jul 1337[1065]. Testified in 1356 and was already dead in 1357. m firstly (1 Sep 1307) as her second husband, ASSALIDE de Bordeaux, dame de Puy-Paulin, Captalesse de Buch, widow of BERTRAND de l'Isle-Jourdain, daughter of PIERRE [V] de Bordeaux & his wife Comtor --- (-1328). She was heiress of her brother Pierre [VI] de Bordeaux (who was the first husband of Jeanne de Périgord, probable daughter of Hélie [IX] Comte de Périgord). Testified 2 Apr 1328[1066]. m secondly (31 Dec 1328) as her second husband, EREMBOURG [Erimburgis] de Périgord, widow of JACQUES de La Vie, daughter of HELIE [IX] TALLEYRAND Comte de Périgord & his second wife Brunissende de Foix. She is not mentioned in her father's testament dated 8 Aug 1302[1067], and the phrasing of the contract for her first marriage dated 13 Jun 1319 "Emborgem filiam bonae memoriae domini Heliae Taleyrandi comitis Petragoricensis…dicta Eremburgis cum dicto Jacobo…et quia in presenti propter defectum aetatis cujuslibet dictorum filiorum contrahi non poterat matrimonium inter eos" points to an unusually tender age[1068]. She is often named Rosemburge in secondary sources but this appears unsupported by primary sources.
