    Notes:

    Also called Baldwin de Redvers. Earl of Devon. "He was one of the first to rebel against King Stephen, and was the only first rank magnate never to accept the new king. He seized Exeter, and was a pirate out of Carisbrooke, but he was driven out of England to Anjou, where he joined the Empress Matilda. She made him Earl of Devon after she established herself in England, probably in early 1141." [Wikipedia]

    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.

Generation: 4

  1. 12.  Ranulf Peverel

    Notes:

    There seems little doubt that Ranulf Peverel existed; what's at issue is whether he was father to any of the other real and alleged Peverels of the late eleventh century. It seems at least plausible that he was father to William Peverel "the Elder" (d. 1114), and that Robert Peverel (father of Ascelina, wife of Geoffrey de Walterville) was William the Elder's brother -- or possibly half-brother, sharing with him a father but not a mother. A somewhat messy collection of snippets from the literature is here.

    Children:
    1. Robert Peverel
    2. 6. William "The Elder" Peverel was born in in of Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, England; died on 28 Jan 1114.
