  • Notes 
    • From Complete Peerage (IV:316):

      [Baldwin de Reviers] married Margaret, daughter and heir of Warin Fitz Gerold, the King's Chamberlain, by Alice (to whom she was coheir), sister and heir of William de Curcy, and daughter of another William de Curcy, both of Stogursey, Somerset, Irby, co. Lincoln, &c. He died 1 September 1216, aged 16 or less. His widow was immediately afterwards forced by King John (who died 18 October) to marry the notorious Faukes de Breaute?, a Norman, at whose downfall in 1224, she was captured, or rather rescued, on the surrender of Bedford Castle, 14 August. Directly after this she demanded that her marriage should be annulled, as she had been taken prisoner in time of war and married to Faukes without her consent. He was sentenced to exile for ever, and was given letters of conduct, 26 October 1224, to quit the realm as soon as possible: the Earl of Warenne being ordered to take him to the sea-coast, and, having put him on board ship, to commit him to the winds and the sails. He proceeded to Rome to obtain the Pope's assistance to recover his lands and his wife with her dower, and died on his return thence, after 11 July 1226, at St. Cyriac in Languedoc. Margaret died shortly before 29 September 1252, and was buried in the Church of the Grey Friars, London.
