JOSCELIN de Louvain, [illegitimate] son of GODEFROI V "le Barbu" Duke of Lower Lotharingia, Comte de Louvain & [his mistress ---] (-1180). His parentage is confirmed by a manuscript genealogy of the Percy family which names “Matildem et Agnetem” as the daughters and heiresses of “Willielmus de Percy”, adding that Agnes married “Goselino Lovayn fratri Ducis Brabantiæ”[813]. It appears likely that he was illegitimate. If it is correct that he married after 1154, he would have been rather old at that date to have been born from Duke Godefroi´s first marriage. On the other hand, Duke Godefroi´s second wife was probably too old to have given birth to children after her marriage with the duke. Joscelin accompanied his half-sister Adelisa to England when she married King Henry I in 1121. He was granted the honour of Petworth, Sussex by Queen Adelisa before 1151.

m (after 1154) AGNES de Percy, daughter & co-heiress of WILLIAM de Percy & his first wife Alice de Tonbridge (-[end 1202/13 Oct 1204]). A manuscript genealogy of the Percy family names “Matildem et Agnetem” as the daughters and heiresses of “Willielmus de Percy”, adding that Agnes married “Goselino Lovayn fratri Ducis Brabantiæ”[814]. “Mathildis de Percy comitissa de Warwic, filia Willielmi de Perci” donated property to Sawley abbey, for the souls of “…patris mei Willielmi de Percy et Adalidis de Tunbrige matris meæ et Alani de Percy fratris mei et Agnetis sororis meæ”, by undated charter[815]. “Agnes de Percy” confirmed donations of property by “Matildis comitissa de Warwicke soror mea” to Sawley abbey, for the souls of “Jocelini quondam sponsi mei et Willielmi de Percy patris mei et Adelidis de Tunebrigge matris meæ”, by undated charter, witnessed by “…W. de Percy…”[816]. “Agnes de Percy” made a grant to the hospital of St Peter, York, after the death of “sponsi mei Jocelini de Luvain”, by charter dated to [1182/85][817].

Joscelin & his wife had seven children (who assumed the name “Percy” from their mother):

1. HENRY de Percy (-before Nov 1198, bur Saint-Lo, Rouen). A manuscript genealogy of the Percy family names “Henricum et Ricardum fratrem eius” as the children of “Goselino Lovayn fratri Ducis Brabantiæ” & his wife[818]. m ([1180]) as her first husband, ISABEL de Brus, daughter of ADAM de Brus of Skelton, Yorkshire & his wife Jueta de Archis ([1168/70]-after 1230). A charter dated to [1190/96] notified that “Adam de Brus” granted property to “Henrico de Perci et Isabelle filie mee uxori sue” on their marriage[819]. This suggests that Isabel must have been only eleven years old at the most at the time of her marriage, assuming that her father´s dates of marriage and death are correctly stated above. “Juetta de Arches” granted property to “Isabelle de Brus filie mee” by charter dated to 1192[820]. The primary source which confirms her second marriage has not yet been identified. She married secondly Sir Roger Mauduit. Henry de Percy & his wife had two children:

a) WILLIAM de Percy ([1196/98]-shortly before 28 Jul 1245, probably bur Salley Abbey, his heart bur at Sandown Hospital with his first wife). A manuscript genealogy of the Percy family names “Willielmum” as son of “Henricum”, adding that he was born during the lifetime of his paternal grandmother[821]. The Percy inheritance was split between him and his uncle Richard de Percy.

- see below.

b) HENRY de Percy of Heyshott ([1196/98]-). The primary source which confirms his parentage has not yet been identified.

2. RICHARD de Percy (-1244). A manuscript genealogy of the Percy family names “Henricum et Ricardum fratrem eius” as the children of “Goselino Lovayn fratri Ducis Brabantiæ” & his wife[822]. The Percy inheritance was split between him and his nephew William de Percy (his nephew, son of his older brother William). Richard received those parts in the hands of his mother, but on his death this moiety reverted to William. He was one of the 25 Barons who enforced the provisions of Magna Carta 1215. “Ricardus de Percy” confirmed the donation of Topcliffe church to York Cathedral by “Willielmi de Percy avi mei”, by charter dated 13 Apr 1226, witnessed by “…Henrico de Percy…”[823]. m firstly ALICE, daughter of ---. m secondly as her first husband, AGNES de Neville, daughter of GEOFFREY de Neville of Raby in Northumberland (-[16 Jun 1285/20 Jul 1293]). The primary source which confirms her parentage and two marriages has not yet been identified. She married secondly (before 12 Nov 1251) John Deincourt, son of Oliver Deincourt. Richard had one [illegitimate] son by [an unknown mistress]:

a) Sir HENRY [de Percy]. Probably illegitimate, as he did not inherit his father’s moiety of the Percy barony. He may have been “…Henrico de Percy…” who witnessed the charter dated 13 Apr 1226 under which “Ricardus de Percy” confirmed the donation of Topcliffe church to York Cathedral by “Willielmi de Percy avi mei”[824]. He was granted the manor of Settle by his father. Living 1267. m ---. The name of Sir Henry´s wife is not known. Sir Henry & his wife had one child:
