     Sir William Fitzwilliam was born before 1275. He was the son of Sir William FitzThomas and Agnes Metham.
     Sir William Fitzwilliam married Maud Unknown (Fitzwilliam).
     Sir William Fitzwilliam married secondly Isabel Deincourt. John Ravilious wrote: it has been all but proven that the daughters of Sir William (e.g., Margaret, wife of Henry de Pierrepont, and Joan, wife of Sir Brian de Thornhill) were his issue by Isabel Deincourt, his (apparent) 2nd wife. Based largely on her will dated 25 July 1348, it also appeared that Sir John FitzWilliam, eldest surviving son and heir of Sir William, was her son as well [she made a bequest to "Johanni filio meo", among others], but I recall there had remained a doubt in some corners.
An otherwise obscure record concerning lands in Dalton juxta Thribergh, Yorks. serves to cement the relationship. In Isabel's will she calls John her son; in this demise by John FitzWilliam dated 29 May 1348 - obviously during Isabel Deincourt's lifetime - she is called "Isabella, the grantor's mother".
' 1348. Demise by John son of Sir William, Knt. Knt.,
29 May. Knt., to Robt. Loveday of Dalton of one messuage 1 1/2 oxgang, a plot called Molde Riddyng', and half an assart called the Newebrekk', which as appears by inspection of the grantors court rolls of Dalton, the said Robt. holds by demise of Isabella, the grantor's mother, for her life for 24s. 6d. rent; for 40 years after her death at the same rent.
Witnesses: - Sir Thos. Clarell, Ralf de Rerisby, John del Hill of Dalton, Adam Gamell, Wm. Mauger, Ric. son of Nicholas de Ravenfeld, John de Blida, clerk.
Sprotburgh, Thursday, Ascension Day, 1348. [B. 86.]' [1]
The Deincourt ancestry of the later FitzWilliams of Sprotborough, and of the descendants of the FitzWilliam daughters, is certain. The matter of the maternal ancestry of Isabel Deincourt (possibly not via de Mohun) still deserves further study.
     Lord of Emley and Sprotborough; at inquest 9 Edw II (1315). He was summoned for military service in 1327.
     William died before 1342. He was living on 11 Apr 1340 when he was declared too old and infirm to serve and his son John was to serve in his stead. He was buried before 1342 in Sprotborough. His will asked to be buried in the chapel of St Tyhomas the Martyr at Sprotborough.
