Someone had erroneously added Mathilde or Matilda du Perche as the mother of Aubrey de Lacy and wife of Robert de Lacy when it clearly is Matilda UNKNOWN as per the sources provided.

If someone has valid information that justifies making changes and can specify exactly what those changes should be, let me know. David Cordell

But actually, is her name Albreda? Or Aubrey? In French, not Latin.

(Albreda, "Elf-Counsel" is an awesome name. Not sure if it's hers though.)

Errr, because HER name was Aubrey de Lacy, is perhaps why she was "commonly called Aubrey de Lacy." (Conversely her daughter was literally BORN Aubrey de Lisours, is why she is perhaps called Aubrey de Lisours.)

Look, I get it. People, including women, get married. Sometimes (usually) they change their names.

But this is HER biography page, not her husband or her family. Can we have a less misogynistic bio? No offense. But it is.

Lacy-883 and Lacy-5 do not represent the same person because: different centuries
