Mystery shrouds the identity of Herbastus, apparently of Danish origin, but unlikely to have been a son of King Harald II bluetooth as usually suggested. He married Cyrid (perhaps of Danish or Swedish royal descent). Herbastus probably had the following children. However, it is possible the list was produced in the past by someone assuming all persons in that era noted as being "de Crepon" were siblings, as otherwise it is remarkable that so many siblings should have had such "illustrious" descendants:
[HERB301] Herbastus de Crepon m. Cyrid . [FZOS321] Herfast de Crepon m. ? . [HERB312] Senfrie de Crepon m. [BERD322] Seigneur Thorold de Pont-Audemer . [HERB312] Sibell de Crepon m. [TMON311] Hugh de Montgomery . [HERB313] Avelina de Crepon m2. [BOLE351] Osbern de Bolebec, Lord of Longueville . [HERB314] Avelina de Crepon m2. [BERD321] Seigneur Thorold de Pont-Audemer . [HERB316] Gunora de Crepon m. [NORM291] Duke Richard I of Normandy
[HERB301] Herbastus de Crepon (born c.906), Forster de Arques, perhaps married Cyrid.
