Aline / Alice "daughters" of Edmund FitzAlan, 2nd Earl of Arundel

+2 votes
Edmund FitzAlan shows as having had two daughters with exceptionally similar names: Aline and Alice.  Does documentation establish two daughters with these names?  "Aline" is shown to have married Roger le Strange, 5th Baron Strange, though 14 years his senior (red flag), hence the further question: who is the documented wife of the 5th Baron Strange? I see the footnotes on her profile, but lack in my library those sources to confirm the footnotes are correctly represented.

Chris Given-Wilson, in his ODNB article of 3 Jan 2008 at, says:

"He was survived by, probably, six children: Richard (II) Fitzalan, who succeeded to the earldom following Mortimer's downfall in 1330; Edmund and Michael, who both entered the church; Alice, who married John de Bohun, heir to the earldom of Hereford, in 1325; Aleyne, who married Roger Lestrange of Knockin (c.1338); and Jane, who is said to have married Lord Lisle."

Personally, I'd be confident there was both an Alice and an Aline. However WikiTree, true to its early traditions, has managed to award him lots of other children.

Greetings, Thank you, Mr. Given-Wilson.  Just after posting this I was able to confirm the same by a scanned history of the Le Strange family (400 pages!) which I located online, in addition to confirmation at the Medieval Lands Genealogy website.
Good news! By the way, place no reliance on anything in her WikiTree profile, including the comical name of "Olive".
lol "Olive"--how sweet.
