On the other hand, a claim, dated 1222, recorded by Bracton, was made by "Matillis de Curteney" against "Robertum de Curtenay" concerning "manerium de Ocumptona", "Robertus" claiming that the land was "hereditas Matillidis de Aueregnes" who had "duas filias…Hawisiam matrem suam primogenitam […filia Gaufridi de Crimes primi viri Matillidis de Auerenches] et…Matillidem", the claimant Matilda replying that she had the land in question "ex dono Roberti filii Regis patris eiusdem Matillidis et secundi viri predicte Matillidis de Auerenches".
If this second source is correct, Robert´s wife was MATHILDE d´Avranches, widow of GEOFFROY de Crimes, daughter of ROBERT d´Avranches & his wife [Hawise de Dol]. At first sight, the second source, as a direct quote from a lawsuit, appears the more reliable report. However, it presents a problem of chronology. The marriage of the mother of Robert de Courtenay, Hawise, is dated to 1178 or before, which would place her birth in [1160/65] assuming that she married in adolescence which would have been usual at the time. However, if this is correct, the second marriage of Hawise´s mother with Robert FitzEdith would be dated to [1165/70], which seems late for the son of King Henry I. It is likely that there is some inaccuracy in this source, from which it is possible that a generation has been missed.
