[TIRR281] Eccard (son of [SENS271] Count Childebrand, see SENS COUNTY), Count of Autun and in the Vexin.
[TIRR291] Nivelon II , Count of Vexin and Auxerre, and in the Vexin.
[TIRR301] Terric, chevalier, too young to bear arms at his father's death.
[TIRR311] Waleran, Count in the Vexin, and of Pontoise, Chaumont, Plantes and Meulan, hereditary Standard Bearer of France, married [FLAN304] Adelgarde (daughter of Count Arnulf, see FLANDERS COUNTY). Waleran died 965.
[TIRR321] Walter I Tirrell (born at Tirel, c.925), Count in the Vexin and of Amiens, married (c.948) [DREX322] Eve (born 922, daughter & heiress of Count Landry of Dreux, see DREUX COUNTY). Walter died 995, and Eve died 1016.
[TIRR331] Ralf Tirrell (born at Foix, c.950, 4th son of Walter), Sire de Tirel, de Pois and de Guernanville, married --- (daughter of --- Seigneur de Guernanville). He later became Chatelain of Pontoise, Seigneur de Guernanville and Vicomte d'Amiens.
[TIRR341] Fulk Tirrell (born at Tirel, c.975, 2nd son of Ralf), Seigneur de Guernanville and Dean d'Evreux. He married [NXXX312] Orielde (see NORMANDY DUKEDOM).
According to "The Battle Abbey Roll. With Some Account of the Norman Lineages" (the Duchess of Cleveland, 1889), Fulk "espoused the noble lady Orielda", the author's source presumably being "The ecclesiastical history of England and Normandy" (Ordericus Vitalis), wherein Vitalis wrote "According to the custom of that period, he [Fulk] had a noble partner,- whose name was Orielde, who bore him a numerous offspring." So Fulk may not even have actually taken Orielde to be his wife. Finally, according to "Further genealogical notes on the Tyrrell-Terrell family of Virginia and its English and Norman-French progenitors" (Edwin H. Terrell, San Antonio, Texas, 1909), Fulk "married Orielda, who was a daughter of Richard I., the third Duke of Normandy". Terrell did not quote a specific source for this statement, but it does seem reasonable.
