FALAISE

[FALA301] Fulbert (born c.978), “the tanner of Falais” [though this could be a misinterpretation of the facts at a later date], a pellparius/pellitarius [=a pelterer] of Falaise from the pays of Liege, married Doda/Duxia. Fulbert died 1017

[FALA319] Herleva (born c.1003, daughter of Fulbert) had an illicit relationship with [NORM321] DUKE ROBERT II (see NORMANDY DUKEDOM), by whom she had William the Conqueror. Afterwards Herleva married [CONT311] Vicomte Herluin (see CONTEVILLE).

[FALA314] Beatrice (daughter of Fulbert) married (c.1001) [NORY411] Robert de Brionne (see HASTINGS EU FEUDAL LORDSHIP). Note that the dating of Herleva and Beatrice seem to be inconsistent.

[GRAY321] Lord Reynald de Falais (son of Fulbert), Lord of Croy/Croix, is dealt with under GRAY.

FALAISE (2)

[FALZ341] William de Falaise (not necessarily related to "Fulbert the tanner"), held the Manor of Worspring (at 1086). He married [BURC369] Geva (widow of [MART361] Martin, see MARTIN, daughter & heiress of Serlo de Burci, see BLAGDON). Geva was still living in 1113, when she acquired Candey Island (off the Pembrokeshire coast, near Tenby).

[FALZ352] Emma de Falaise (daughter of William) married 1. William FitzHumphrey; then 2. (c.1100) [CURY351] William I de Curcy (see CURCY).
