    • 1110 or 1112 might be better, based on husband James St Hilary's birth year of 1110 and daughter Maud's as 1132 (given in Lewis's database).[6]
  • Location:
    • Pais de Calais (Hesdin's probable birth location)[3]
    • Eure, Loire, Rhone-Alpes, France

I removed King Alexander of Scotland as Aveline's father. As far as I can tell, there is no source for "Hesding" as her maiden name, which should probably be changed to "Unknown." A source for her given name would be nice, too.

Aveline is 36 degrees from Alexandre Dumas, 27 degrees from Richard Shelley and 13 degrees from Henry VIII of England on our single family tree. Login to find your connection.
