The title of Baron Braose was created twice in the Peerage of England. Records from the period spell the name Brewose.

William de Braose is recorded to have sat in the Parliament of April and May 1290, so is deemed to have been summoned as a lord of parliament. On 29 December 1299, his son William de Braose was summoned to parliament. On his death in 1326, the first creation of the barony fell into abeyance.[2]

On 25 February 1342, Thomas de Braose was summoned to parliament. On the death of the fifth Baroness in 1399, the second creation of the barony became extinct.[3]
