Ralph d'Aubigne

( - before Michaelmas 1192)
     Ralph d'Aubigne was born in England. He was the son of William D'Aubigne (Brito I) and Cecily Bigod.
     Sibyl de Valognes married thirdly Ralph d'Aubigne in 1181 or 1182.
     Ralph died before Michaelmas 1192.

Ralph D'Aubigne

     Ralph D'Aubigne was the son of Patriarch D'Aubigne.
In 1095, a Ralph d'Aubigne was a witness to a deed of gift to the abbey of Mont St Michel, Brittany, appending his seal bearing an escutcheon - d'azur a trois mondes surmontis d'une d'or'. This Ralph, by name, chronology, blazon, and the inheritance of Aubigne by William's grandson, was probably the elder brother of William, later of Belvoir (Brito 1), for Kerviler also indicates that there was on the escutcheon "un lambel [label] en chef', in later heraldry at least, the cadency mark of an eldest son during the lifetime of his father (this Ralph's father has not been identified). William 1 it seems, as a second son in search of fortune, joined the forces of Henry 1 as a knight of the Breton contingent under the orders of Helie, Count of Le Mans. He so distinguished himself at the battle of Tinchebrai (27 Sept. 1106) against the forces of Henry's brother Robert that the resulting victory for Henry was said to be largely of his doing". It was possibly this action that brought the favour of Henry and the marriage with Cecily, the heiress of Belvoir, though Adeliza, her mother, was apparently still mistress of Belvoir in 1130, owing tax of £188 for the fee. Even so, references to the collection of appreciable amounts of tax from William (Brito) and his men occur at this date too, so William was then obviously holding a sizeable fee, if not Belvoir.

William D'Aubigne

( - between 1166 and 1167)
      William d'Aubigny, 1st Earl of Arundel (c. 1109October 12, 1176) was son of a senior William d'Aubigny and Maud le Bigod.
The younger William was an important member of Henry I of England's household. After Henry's death he married the widow Queen consort Adeliza, and became lord of Arundel in her right. He was loyal to Stephen of England, who made him Earl of Arundel (more precisely, Earl of Sussex). In 1143 he was also mentioned as Earl of Lincoln in two charters confirming a donation of land around Arundel to the abbey of Affligem in Brabant (representing his wife Adeliza), with William's brother Olivier present.
In 1153 he helped arrange the truce between Stephen and Henry Plantagenet, known as the Treaty of Wallingford, which brought and end to The Anarchy. When the latter ascended the throne as Henry II, he confirmed William's earldom and gave him direct possession of Arundel Castle (instead of the possession in right of his wife he had previously had). He remained loyal to the king during the 1173 revolt of Henry the Young King, and helped defeat the rebellion.
He and Adeliza were parents to William d'Aubigny, 2nd Earl of Arundel and grandparents to William d'Aubigny, 3rd Earl of Arundel. William D'Aubigne was the son of William D'Aubigne (Brito I) and Cecily Bigod.
William D'Aubigne married Maude de St Liz. Chris Nash on the Gen-Medieval mailing list corrected Matilda de Senlis, showing her father was Robert fitz Richard de Clare /Robert de Clare.
     William died between 1166 and 1167.

William D'Aubigne (Brito I)

      He became 3rd Lord of Belvoir.
According to Levot 10 (whose facts and assumptions seem not always to be reliable - a Montsorel escutcheon acquired by the family 100 years later!), the gift by Guillaume Boterat witnessed by Ralph d'Aubigne in 1095 was made on the eve of their departure on a crusade, a popular pastime of the nobility of western Europe in that period, and no indication of his return has been found. While there are many Breton charters extant naming members of the Aubigne family, because of the lack of relationship details or dates on available copies of the documents the next definite sighting found of a Lord of Aubigne is in 1196 when Ralph II was using a seal with the undifferenced ancient escutcheon of Aubigne 11. Fig. 1. [It is not clear from the presentation by de Courcy whether the numbers 1196 & 1200 are dates or numbers of seals in a series, but as Dom Lobineaull also quotes the use by William of the same six bezant seal with the date AD. 1200, and with a picture of the seal, it seems safe to assume that de Courcy's other figure, 1196, is also a date]. It is probable that the Aubigne lordship, on the death of his elder brother Ralph, reverted to William (Brito I) who then passed it to his younger son Ralph 1, and so to Ralph II. William D'Aubigne (Brito I) was born in France. The Breton Lords of Belvoir and the Daubeney family of Ingleby, Lincolnshire, and South Petherton, Somerset, came from the same family of Breton landowners in the small town of Aubigne now St. Aubin d'Aubigne a few kilometres north of Rennes, Brittany, on route 776.. William D'Aubigne (Brito I) was also known as de Albini in records. He was the son of Patriarch D'Aubigne. William D'Aubigne (Brito I) was also known as William D'Aubigne in records.
William D'Aubigne (Brito I) married Cecily Bigod, daughter of Roger Bigod Earl of Norfolk and Adeliza de Tosny.
William 1 it seems, as a second son in search of fortune, joined the forces of Henry 1 as a knight of the Breton contingent under the orders of Helie, Count of Le Mans. He so distinguished himself at the battle of Tinchebrai (27 Sept. 1106) against the forces of Henry's brother Robert that the resulting victory for Henry was said to be largely of his doing". It was possibly this action that brought the favour of Henry and the marriage with Cecily, the heiress of Belvoir, though Adeliza, her mother, was apparently still mistress of Belvoir in 1130, owing tax of £ 188 for the fee`. Even so, references to the collection of appreciable amounts of tax from William (Brito) and his men occur at this date too, so William was then obviously holding a sizeable fee, if not Belvoir..
