  • Notes 
    • "Fulk de Orreby, son of Sir Philip the Justiciar by his 2nd wife, must have succeeded to his father's estates, because his widowed mother had dower by his assignment. [...] He was a knight by 1238. He held sundry offices in the Palatinate--e.g., in 1249 he was keeper of Chester Abbey during a vacancy, and in 1251 keeper of the Forest and escheator in Cheshire. At Michaelmas 1259 he was appointed Justiciar, and retained office until his death, 23 Aug. 1261. He is said to have married Philippe, 'daughter and heir of John Strange of Dalby,' and to have acquired with her Dalby and other lands in Lincolnshire. His widow was named Sibyl." [Complete Peerage X:170]

      CP's footnote (h) on the same page, regarding the issue of whether he married a Philippe Strange:

      "According to the old pedigrees. The tradition derives support from seals used by John Orreby [1st Lord Orreby] and his grandson. [...] Fulk was holding Dalby of the Earl of Chester in 1242-3; Gilbert de Langton appears to have held it in 1212."
