ALICE de Berkeley (-after 1190). [daughter of Roger III de Berkeley and wife, name unknown] The Complete Peerage records her parentage and marriage, adding that the manor of Slimbridge was her dowry (no corresponding source cited)[966].

Alice was really not the half-sister of her mother-in-law, Prioress Eva of Bristol. This was a mistake I do not know how to undo.

Alice de Berkeley was first daughter, but not heir or co-heir, of her husband Maurice's dispossed predecessor, Roger de Berkeley, fuedal Lord of Dursley.

Alice died at an "extreame old age."
