After the battle of Tinchebrai in 1106 the King granted him the English lands of Robert de Stuteville, a supporter of Robert Curthose. During the Norman rebellion of 1119 Nele, with his brother William, remained faithful to Henry I and fought for him at the victory over the French King at Bremule on 20 Aug. In 1123, with Robert the King's son, he was in command of the forces of the Cotentin at the taking of the castle of Montfort-sur-Risle. At some date unknown he had a grant of Montbrai and the other forfeited lands in Normandy of Robert de Mowbray (Montbrai), Earl of Northumberland whose former wife he married. He held Bazoches-au-Houlme of the Count of Eu, and Masham, Yorks, of Count Stephen of Brittany, the lord of Richmond. He founded the priory of Hurst in Axholme, Lines, as a cell of Nostell, and gave Aldburgh, near Masham, Yorks, to Pontigny." [Complete Peerage]

    His first wife, married sometime after 1107, was Maud, daughter of Richer de l'Aigle, who had been married to Robert de Mowbray, Earl of Northumberland, a marriage which was annulled on grounds of consanguinity.

    From Wikipedia:

    Gundred or Gundreda (Latin: Gundrada) (died 27 May 1085) was the Flemish-born wife of an early Norman baron, William de Warenne, 1st Earl of Surrey. She and her husband established Lewes Priory in Sussex.

    Gundred was almost certainly born in Flanders, and was a sister of Gerbod the Fleming, 1st Earl of Chester. She is explicitly so called by Orderic Vitalis, as well as the chronicle of Hyde Abbey. She was also sister of Frederick of Oosterzele-Scheldewindeke, who was killed c. 1070 by Hereward the Wake. Legends based in part on late Lewes priory cartulary suggested Gundred was a daughter of William the Conqueror by his spouse Matilda of Flanders, but this is not accepted by most modern historians. The early-19th-century writer Thomas Stapleton had argued she was a daughter of Matilda, born prior to her marriage to Duke William. This sparked a debate consisting of a series of published papers culminating with those of Edmond Chester Waters and Edward Augustus Freeman who argued the theories could not be supported. Regardless, some genealogical and historical sources continue to make the assertion that she was the Conqueror's daughter.

    Gundred married before 1070 William de Warenne, 1st Earl of Surrey (d. 20 June 1088), who rebuilt Lewes Castle, making it his chief residence. Sometime between 1078 and 1082, Gundrada and her husband set out for Rome visiting monasteries along the way. In Burgundy they were unable to go any further due to a war between Henry IV and Pope Gregory VII. They visited Cluny Abbey and were impressed with the monks and their dedication. William and Gundred decided to found a Cluniac priory on their own lands in England. They sent to Hugh the abbot of Cluny for monks to come to England at their monastery. Hugh was reluctant yet eventually sent several monks including Lazlo who became the first abbot. The house they founded was Lewes Priory, dedicated to St. Pancras. Gundred died in childbirth 27 May 1085 at Castle Acre, Norfolk, one of her husband's estates, and was buried at the Chapter house of Lewes Priory. He was later buried beside her.

    2. William II de Warenne was born about 1071; died on 11 May 1138; was buried in Lewes Priory, Sussex, England.
