[RICHARD . No direct proof has been found that Richard was the son of Ranulf. However, this parentage is inferred from a document which records that the abbot of Mont Saint-Michel had wrongfully sold property to “Ranulf the moneyer”, that it was inherited by “Gualeran son of Ranulf” who sold it back to the abbey, that it was claimed by “John of Richard” who “some fifteen years…later” seized the property, and that judgment in the ensuing dispute was awarded to the abbey. In addition, Richard´s son is named “Johannes nepos Walerami” (presumably Waleran, son of Ranulf, see above) in his capacity as holder of the manor of Elsenham, Essex in Domesday Book, although this phrase does not exclude the possibility that the relationship was through a sister of Waleran and that Richard was her husband.] m ---.
