Osbern de Bolebec, a noble Norman Lord of Longueville in Normandy (living in the time of Duke Robert the Magnificent or the Devil who was the father of William the Conqueror), married probably in the last years of the tenth or the early years of the eleventh century Avelina, third sister of Gunnora who was the second wife of Richard, Duke of Normandy from 942 to 996.[1]


ABT. 940—970, Collections for a History of Staffordshire states he was "quite young" when he married Avelina. So 940 seems too early. amb
Place: Longueville, Normandy, France


Osbern de Bolebec married Avelina third sister of Gunnora Duchess of Normandy.[2]

...Gunnora had a bevy of younger sisters whom she promoted by marrying them to the sons of great Norman houses who were in ward to the Duke (Richard, Duke of Normandy) and in this way the third sister, Avelina, was given in marriage to Osbern de Bolebec Lord of Longueville by whom she had Walter Giffard the first and Godfrey father of William d Arques.[3][4]
