    • Also called Audrey, etc. VCH Warwickshire ("Parishes: Morton Morrell", pp. 118-122) says her mother was "daughter and coheir of Robert Peverel," but this is sourced only to Dugdale.

      Ray Phair, post to soc.genealogy.medieval, 7 Jun 2002:

      Cris Nash and earlier Dick Ledyard asked who was the father of Aubreye (Albreda) de Harcourt (d. 1205), wife of William Trussebut?

      There are at least three versions:

      A) Bridges claimed her father was Aubrey ('Albricius') de Harcourt [1], without providing any evidence. So far, no record of his existence has been found. Clay accepted this version, rather than the next one, because it was presented earlier [2].

      B) Baker (according to Clay) and Eyton said her father was Rollo de Harcourt, without providing any evidence [2,3]. So far, no record of his existence has been found. Farrer and Sanders accepted this version; Clay dismissed it as without proof [4,2].

      C) Crouch, in a very brief note, proposed that her father was Ivo de Harcourt, a younger son of Robert fitz Anschetil, lord of Harcourt [5]. Ivo, who appeared possibly as early as c.1140, was alive in 1166, but may have died later that year [5,6].

      By two charters Aubreye gave land in "Brandestona" to Nuneaton priory, Warwickshire [2]. Clay has identified this location as Braunston, Northamptonshire, where Aubreye and her descendants are known to have held land; Round had earlier implied this was the location of her gift [2,7]. Crouch, on the other hand, thought it was Braunstone, Leicestershire; although based on more tentative evidence, it does provides a link to the family of Ivo de Harcourt. A descendant of Ivo's heir did later hold land there [8], but Crouch's version needs further study.
