    • Also called Robert de Monte Alto; Robert de Montalt; Robert Fitz Ranulph. Hereditary seneschal to the Earl of Chester.

      "Robert de Mohaut (de Monte Alto) or of Mold, cousin and heir. He was son of Ralph, dapifer or steward of Earl Hugh and his successors, which Ralph was brother of Hugh FitzNorman. He was known as 'le Blakestiward' or Sir Robert de Mohaut the Black Steward. He defeated the Welsh, who were overrunning the Palatinate, 3 September 1146, at Nantwich, and received various grants from the Earls of Chester, including Hawarden, which became the caput of the barony. In 1160 he was one of the farmers of the Earl of Chester's lands, and accounted as such up to 1162." [Complete Peerage]
