About Fulk II "Brunin" FitzWarin, Lord of Whittington and Alveston

http://our-royal-titled-noble-and-commoner-ancestors.com/, based upon work by Douglas Richardson, adds a generation and places this Fulk as the son of Warin FitzWarin and his wife Miletta Whittington, thus making him the grandson of Fulk "le Brun" and Eva.

However, the dates do not seem to allow for another generation to be inserted. We have this man's borth as 1138 and his wife Hawise born 1147. Birthdates we have for Warin and Miletta are 1130 and 1148, respectively, which would put them too young to have been Fulk's parents. The dates currently for Fulk "le Brun" is 1110. Without firmer evidence, it appears that Fulk 'le Brun" is more likely to have been the father of both Warin and Fulk II.

I suspect the confusion comes from the fact that Fulk (1110-1171) "le Brun" FitzWarin's mother was Melette (aka Maud) Peverel.

Birth: unknown Alveston Gloucestershire, England

Death: 1197 Alveston Gloucestershire, England

Fulk Fitzwarin also known as Brunin. He was the son of a man also named Fulk Fitzwarin.

He was raised by his future father in law Joscelin de Dinan.

Fulk married Hawise, daughter of Joscelin de Dinan and Sybil Talbot, sometime around 1160 and is traditionally stated to have made a claim upon Ludlow, which was allowed. The Shropshire Pipe Roll of 1177 shows that he had been amerced forty merks by Henry II for forest trespass. About 1180, he successfully disputed the right of Shrewsbury Abbey to the advowson of Alberbury. Ten years later he was fined 100l. for his wife's share of an inheritance and through her probably acquired and interest in several Wiltshire manors. On 6 Nov 1194, he was named as attorney for his wife in a suit of mort d'ancestre on account of the lands in the same county; and was fined ten merks to be excused transfretation to Normandy. In 1195, he is entered as owing forty merks for the castle of Whittington adjudged to him in curia regis. The fine remained unliquidated in 1201. He died in 1197. The next year, his widow paid thirty merks that she might not be obliged to remarry. Her name constantly appears as a litigant down to 1226. Fulk and Hawise was the parents of Fulk whom the legend of Robin Hood was inspired and a daughter Eve who married Thomas de Londres

Romance of Fouke le Fitz Waryn

The biography of Fulk III survives in a French prose "ancestral romance", extant in a miscellaneous manuscript containing English, French and Latin texts, which is based on a lost verse romance. A 16th century summary of a Middle English version has also been preserved. The work is part of the Matter of England.[4] According to the tale, as a young boy, Fulk was sent to the court of King Henry II, where he grew up with the future King John. John became his enemy after a childhood quarrel during a game of chess. As an adult, Fulk was stripped of his family's holdings, and took to the woods as an outlaw. The story may in fact also have confused aspects of the lives of two Fulk FitzWarins, Fulk I (d.1171) and Fulk II (d.1197), father and son. The romance of Fulk FitzWarin has been noted for its parallels to the Robin Hood legend. <refIntroduction to Fouke le Fitz Waryn, edited by Stephen Knight and Thomas H. Ohlgren, originally published in Robin Hood and Other Outlaw Tales, Kalamazoo, Michigan: Medieval Institute Publications, 1997.</ref> It is also similar to that of other medieval outlaws such as Eustace the Monk and Hereward the Wake.

Fulk Fitzwarin II is depicted in the stained glass window at St Laurence Church, Ludlow. -------------------- http://familytreemaker.genealogy.com/users/f/i/n/Jacqueli-C-Finley/PDFGENE3.pdf
