[OILL221] Ralph I d'Oilly (eldest son of Ralph), married (c.1066-67) Ealdgyth (daughter of Wigod of Wallingford).

[OILL232] Matilda (daughter of Ralph I), married (c.1084) Miles Crispin (tenant-in-chief at Wotone [later Wootton Basset], Wilts).

[OILL231] Robert II d'Oilly married [GRST232] Edith of Greystoke (former mistress of King Henry I, and daughter of Forne, see GREYSTOKE above). At the Domesday Survey, Robert held land as tenant-in-chief to the King, in Beds, Berks, Bucks (where he himself held High Wycombe from his wife's fief), Gloucs, Herts, Northants, Oxon and Warks. Robert was at one time Sheriff of Warks, Oxon and (perhaps) Berks, and Constable of Oxford Castle. From this it may be assumed that the d'Oilly family were successive Lords of the Manor of High Wycombe.
