  2. 10.  Walter Giffard (son of Walter Giffard); died Aft 1066.

    Notes:

    Lord of Longueville. One of the fifteen proven companions of William the Conqueror. Complete Peerage (II:386-87) has him as "s. of Osborn de Bolebec, by Aveline, sister of Gunnor, wife of Richard, Duke of the Normans", and many reputable sources reflect this. But like much of our understanding of Norman family relationships prior to the Conquest, this comes to us from the twelfth-century chronicler Robert de Torigny, and in the case of this Walter Giffard's parentage, the chronological difficulty has casued many to suspect that de Torigny compressed two generations into one, and that Osborn de Bolebec and Wevia (the likely actual name of the woman called "Aveline" by CP) were his grandparents, not his parents.

    Some have argued that this Walter's father was Osbert or Osbern Giffard of Brimpsfield, son of Osborn and Wevia and progenitor of three generations of Eliases Giffard. Keats-Rohan (Domesday People, p. 456), on the other hand, calls this Walter "Son of Walter Giffard of Bolbec." In the absence of firm information we're going with the hypothesis that Torigny inadvertantly combined two generations and both of them were named Walter.
