A charter of 1167 or later records Ralph and his parents making a grant to Belvoir Priory.
Ralph, his parents, and his brother Oliver made a grant of an interest in a church at Saxelby and land at Driholm to Newhouse Priory, partly for the soul of William 'de Albeniaco' (d’Aubigny) who had given them the fee.
Ralph died in, or soon before, 1206, when his cousin William d'Aubigny was fined to have the lands which Ralph had held of him.
"Philippe [brother of Ralph II] died childless. At first his principal heir had been his nephew, Philippe, but he also died shortly before December 1224, his successor being his younger brother Ralph. Their father was Ralph d'Aubigny who is known to have married Maude de Montsorel, daughter of Guillaume de Montsorel, Seigneur of Landal in the bishopric of Dol in Brittany. We know that Philippe d'Aubigny junior, was old enough to occupy the post of Warden of the Channel Islands in his uncle's absence, but his brother Ralph may have been his junior by a space of some years, still being recorded as a minor on the 12th of October, 1229. The precise time at which their father, Ralph senior, died remains a mystery. His lands were taken into the hands of the King at the beginning of the century, his cousin William d'Aubigny being awarded custody of this family's principal home, South Ingleby in Lincolnshire, in 1206. In 1227 we see that Philippe the Crusader was ordered to give Maude de Montsorel, widow of his brother Ralph, her dower in Ingleby. From these facts we can only surmise that between 1206 and 1227 Ralph d'Aubigny had reached maturity, married Maude de Montsorel and then died somewhat prematurely. On the 7th of December, 1234, Ralph d'Aubigny, their son, was old enough to do homage for South Petherton in Somerset, given to him by his uncle, the crusader Philippe d'Aubigny. After Philippe's death two years later the further possessions of Barrington and Chillington in that county would have been added to the young Ralph's estate over and above Ingleby and the Seigneury of Landal in Brittany."

claims the same. FMG does not cite any sons for Ralph I and Sybil V. and on a separate page cites a "Ralph Daubeney" as a spouse of Alice de Montagu yet does not tie that Ralph to anyone.
There are so many conflicting sources on this line. The multiple spellings of the family name, a separate line with the same names, frequent usage of the same 1st names = nothing is conclusive :)
