This person seems unlikely. See his purported mother's Wikipedia entry:

Presumably it depends on Charles Cawley's sources. But I can't find any.

Thanks, Martin. Can you point me toward Charles Cawley?

EDIT: Meaning, can you point me to where MedLands makes this claim?

I don't see any reference to illegitimate children here:

http://fmg.ac/Projects/MedLands/NORTHERN%20FRANCE.htm#Mariedied1182

Cawley seems to be the source of the Wikitree article. That's why I picked him.
Don't see much trace of this person elsewhere on the web, and the profile on Geni, which looks like being made by the same member, is without source too.

It almost looks like someone has misunderstood the Abbey as being a husband?

Just follow the line down to the immigrant, then find the book.

This is him

I like how the colours fade.  Never noticed before.

The Romseys of Bickton (Hampshire not Wilts, but near enough) are mentioned here

but they don't go back that far.
