  • Notes 
    • Or Redvers, Rivers, or Latinized to de Ripariis ("from the river-banks").

      A major supporter of Henry I against Curthose, for which he was rewarded with estates enough to make him one of the richest magnates in England.

      Long considered the first Earl of Devon, but no contemporary source confirms this; his son Baldwin is now held to have been the first of that title.
