Brien Fitz-Count, or Brien de Walingford, on going to Jerusalem, left his property to Walter his nephew, then Constable of England.

In 1888 CE, the tale of Brian de Fitz Count was published. It gives an interesting look of how people may have lived in those days.

When Brian died is unknown. After his death Matilda became a nun at Bec and died in the 1150s. As they had no heirs their lands and castles in England and Wales reverted to the Crown early in the reign of Henry II of England.
