  • Notes 
    • Also called Alice, Adeliza de Clare.

      Royal Ancestry, citing Round's Feudal England (1895), has her as a daughter of Gilbert fitz Richard (1066-1117) by Alice de Clermont (1074-1136), dau. of Hugues, count of Clermont (d. 1101-03).

      Complete Peerage X:441, note (j), says "She was probably da. of Richard FitzGilbert (de Clare), by Alice, sister of Ranulph, Earl of Chester; on chronological grounds this is more likely than the suggestion made by Round in Feudal England, ped. at p. 472, that her father was Richard's father Gilbert, who, moreover, had a da. Alice who m. Aubrey de Vere."

      Peter Stewart, in a post to SGM on 18 Nov 2014, says "The wife of William de Percy was named as 'Adelis de Tunbridge' (variously spelled) in three charters of her daughters Agnes and Maud for Sawley (or Sallay) abbey written at the end of the 1180s. Presumably this indicates that she belonged to the Clare family, but apart from surmises about her chronology we don't have evidence as to whose daughter she was."
