  • Notes 
    • Also called Ranulfo Dapifero, Ranulf Montalt, Ralph de Mohaut. Seneschal of Cheshire.

      Ormerod on him, abstracted by Nancy López:

      Hugo de Mara was the Norman grantee of the Cheshire possession of the barons of Montalt. Hugo de Mara, also called Hugo fitz Norman, was the brother of Ranulph Montalt. Hugo de Mara's and his brother Randulph's name first appear in charters that were grants of land to St. Werburgh. Randulph names appears as Randulfus Dapifer.

      The possessions of Hugh de Mara, and the office of Dapifer or Seneschal of the earldom of Cheshire, were united in the next generation in Robert de Montalt. By Dugdale and other authorities, Robert is stated to be the son of Ralph, brother of Hugh de Mara or Hugh Fitz Norman. Robert takes the name of his castle of Montalt or Monte Alto.

      Randulfo made grants to the Werberg's Abbey, 1093, which was founded by Earl Hugh Lupus, of whom he was Dapifer or Seneschal.
