    Ancestral Roots places Ford Abbey in Devon. It is now in Dorset, but appears to be quite close to both the Devon and Somerset borders (in fact its mailing address is in Chard, Somerset). Given shifting county borders, AR could well be correct for the time when Sir Robert was buried.

  2. 9.  (Unknown first wife of Reynold de Courtenay)

    Notes:

    Called by Douglas Richardson and others a "kinswoman of Eleanor of Aquitaine", but this appears to be less than perfectly established as fact.

  5. 12.  Baldwin de Revières was born about 1095 (son of Richard de Revières and Adelise Peverel); died on 4 Jun 1155; was buried in Quarr Abbey, Isle of Wight, England.

    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]

    Founded Quarr Abbey on the Isle of Wight, and the priory of St. James at Exeter.

    Baldwin married Adelise. Adelise was buried in Quarr Abbey, Isle of Wight, England. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]


  6. 13.  Adelise was buried in Quarr Abbey, Isle of Wight, England.

    Notes:

    The Oxford Dictionary of National Biography gives this Adelise a death date of 1146, and says that "between 1151 and 1155 Baldwin married as his second wife, Lucy, the widow of Gilbert de Clare, earl of Hertford." But Complete Peerage IV:312, footnote (c), says "The pedigree of the Earls of Devon in the Cartulary of Twynham makes the certainly erroneous statement that Earl Baldwin was father of Earl Richard, of William de Vernon [shown here as William de Revières], of Henry, and of Hawise de Reviers, 'ex Lucia Comitissa uxore sua.'" In other words, the ODNB biographer is clearly assuming that the Twynham cartulary pedigree is correct, and has derived a death date of 1146 for Adelise based on the known birth years of children that the pedigree mistakenly assigns to a nonexistent marriage of Baldwin to Lucy de Clare.

    Children:
    1. Maud de Revières
    2. Hawise de Revières died after 1211.
    3. 6. William de Revières was born in 1155 in of Carisbrooke, Isle of Wight, England; died on 10 Sep 1217; was buried in Christ Church, Twynham, Devon, England.

    Count of Meulan.

    As a large landholder in both France and Normandy, he was put in a dangerous position by the developing confrontation between Philip Augustus and the kings of England. Eventually this led to his chastisement by both sides and subsequent ruin. He died landless and deposed.
