About Ribald FitzEudes, Lord Middleham and Spennithrone

Ribald was the 1st Norman Lord of Middleham and Spennithorne in Yorkshire. His brother, Alan Rufus, son-in-law of William the Conqueror, gave him these estates which, after the Norman Conquest, were left waste, and in that condition granted to Ghilpatric the Dane, Earl of Brittany by William the Conqueror, whose home and camp had been upon an eminence overlooking Middleham in Yorkshire.

He gave to God and St. Mary's at York and the Abbott Gosfried, in perpetual alms for Beatrix's soul, and 5 carucates of land in Burniston for Earl Alan's soul.

He became a monk in the Abbey at St. Mary's after Beatrice's death.
