William de Albini, called Brito, succeeded as the feudal lord of Belvoir Castle.

This William le Brito was at the time of his succession formally confirmed in the chapter house of St. Albans all the liberal grants of his parents to the Church of Our Lady at Belvoir, desiring that he might be admitted in the fraternity as those his parents had been. William d'Albini, Brito, died about 1155, leaving two sons, William, his heir, and Ralph d'Albini, 2nd son, founder of the House of Daubeny [?], and died at Acre in the Holy Land 1190.
