[HUBE331] Ralph FitzHubert (son of [RYES331] Lord Hubert I, see RYE). At the Domesday Survey, Ralph son of Hubert held lands as tenant-in-chief of the king in Derbys, Leics, Lincs, Norfolk, Notts, Staffs and Suffolk. A later successor was a descendant of his, Odo FitzRalf, who was mentioned in the Pipe Rolls (1131-35).
[HUBE342] Matilda ([born c.1060], daughter of Ralph) married 1. [SALI341] Edward de Salisbury (see below); then 2. (c.1087-92) --- of Salisbury.
EDWARD DE SALISBURY
Walter le Ewrus [=the fortunate] (born at Rosmar/Rosmare/Roumare, c.1033, son of Robert say some sources), Earl of Rosmar. Walter also considered to be a fictitious person, and therefore Edward's father is unknown, though his mother was the wealthy Wulfryn de Creswell. "le Ewrus" was converted to d'Evreux by later writers.
[SALI341] Edward the elder (born c.1060, son of Walter le Ewrus), of Salisbury, a prominent thegn under King Edward the Confessor, was a sheriff in Wiltshire (by February 1080-81). He was the richest tenant-in-chief at the Domesday Survey, holding land of the king in Bucks, Dorset, Hants, Herts, Middlesex, Oxon, Somerset, Surrey and Wilts. The bulk of his lands came to him through Wulfwynn of Cornwall, probably his mother. He married (c.1082) [HUBE342] Matilda FitzHubert (daughter of Ralph FitzHubert, see above). Edward died c.1087-92, and afterwards Matilda married 2. --- de Salisbury (see SALISBURY (SALISBURY) EARLDOM). He is thought to have built Ludgershall Castle, later lost to the Crown.
[SALI351] Edward the younger succeeded his father, and married Adelicia de Raimes (possibly grand-daughter of Roger de Rames, who had holdings as tenant-in-chief at the Domesday Survey (1086), for example in Suffolk).
