Henry 1st

Every known Brinsmead (except some US Brinsmade -Brinsmead descendents from Somerset) all descend from Thomas and Agnys Brinsmead of St. Giles in the Wood, Devon, and from their son and daughter-in-law Robert Brinsmead and Christian Cockshead. New research suggests a link back from Christian Cockshead, through a few illigitimacies and several female lines, to Henry 1st, Beauclerc King of England.
