About Adeliza (Adélaïs, Athelaise) (Alice) NN

First wife of, and mother of the children of:

Geoffrey de Mandeville (11th century)

alternate death dates: 1068 or 1085


From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Geoffrey de Mandeville (d. c. 1100) was Constable of the Tower of London. His surname comes from the town of (Thil-)Manneville (Magnavilla, Mannevilla)[1] or Magna Villa near Valognes in Manche on the Cotentin Peninsula.[2]

An important Domesday tenant-in-chief, de Mandeville was one of the great magnates of the reign of William the Conqueror. William granted him large estates, primarily in Essex, but in ten other shires as well. He served as sheriff in London and Middlesex, and perhaps also in Essex, and in Hertfordshire.

He married firstly Athelaise (Adeliza), by whom he had a son William, and a daughter Beatrix (Beatrice), and possibly others. He married secondly Lescelina, by whom he had no children. About 1085 he and Lescelina founded Hurley as a cell of Westminster.

His lands were inherited by his son William de Mandeville. His daughter Beatrix (Beatrice) was the wife of Geoffrey, whom some have speculated was a natural son of Eustache II, count of Boulogne.
