  • Notes 
    • "Henry married Sybil de Mandeville, the daughter an unknown de Mandeville and Alice Giffard, and a niece of Walter Giffard, bishop of archbishop of York and Godfrey Giffard, bishop of Worcester. Alice (Giffard) Mandeville was apparently the 'favorite sister' of Walter Giffard based on the multiple gifts to her found in his Register. Bishop Godfrey Giffard named 'lady Sybil de Bodaringham, my niece' in his will of 1302." [Joe Cochoit, 26 Apr 2011, citation details below.]
