  1. Reports and Papers


Have removed marriage to Jane Bigod as not mentioned by MedLands.

Not a Lacy. Not called Lacy, nor were his children.

The Clavering connection may be spurious. Apparently it depends on Roger fitz Richard de Warkworth being identified as a son of this Richard, for which there is a lack of evidence. Jane Bigod belongs to this line.

For further discussion see FitzRichard-80, which will send you to sleep and then give you nightmares.

 !RESEARCH NOTE: 1. It has been noted that discrepancies appear between this
record and that for: William Fitz William (1130) and Albreda de Lisours;
William Fitz Godric (1140) and Aubrey de Lisours; William de Clairfait (1130)
and Aubrey de Lisours. Corrective action will not be undertaken by the Gen.
Soc. until necessary supporting evidence has been adequately established.

Response to below message: yes cousin marriages are possible, but that was not the only reason for the detachment. See FitzRichard-80.

The "Jane Bigod" mentioned in this profile is Bigod-6 (who is now listed as 'unknown'). The disconnection was due to " was impossible for the father of this Roger to be the same Richard who was a son of Eustace. (It would mean an extremely close cousin marriage.)"- as seen in FitzRichard-80. It would seem that people take issue with history, as there were several 'close relation' marriages recorded in history. I would suggest reattaching- and not detaching just because of the shock of finding out these things were common (read your history books).

Detaching (when it was known- and displeasing for profile managers to read) has shown to leave a mess of "unknown name/parents", and floating spouses/ children/ etc..

I think we need to disconnect Roger fitz Richard of Clavering and Warkworth. Apart from Round also see Keats-Rohan DD p.948.
