d) son . The 1130 Pipe Roll suggests that Humphrey’s father must have been another son of Roger d’Aubigny, as it records "Alan de Linc" returning for the dowry he gave to "Unfr de Albin cum filia sua" in Lincolnshire[134]. m ---. One child:

i) HUMPHREY de Albini (-before 1129). “Willielmus de Albeneio pincerna regis” donated “decimam de villa...Elham” to Rochester, for the souls of “...fratris mei Nigelli et nepotis mei Hunfridi”, by undated charter[135]. m --- de Lincoln, daughter of ALAN of Lincoln & his wife ---.

The phrasing of the sentence which describes those for whose souls this donation is made is the same as in the undated charter under which “Willielmus de Albeneio pincerna regis” donated “decimam de villa...Elham” to Rochester (see above)[138]. This suggests that one document has been copied from the other. The possibility that the documentation is in some way flawed cannot therefore be excluded. If the lists are authentic in both documents, Ansgot must have been another brother of William de Albini. In that case, he may have been the same person as the father of Samson de Albini who is shown below. m ---. “Ansgotus camerarius regis” donated “decimam...in hameletto...Modingham...in parochiis de Eltham et Chisilhersta” to Rochester, for the souls of “...uxoris mee et fratris mei Nigelli et nepotis mei Humfredi”, by undated charter[139].]

There is some connection between this family and that one mentioned in the following excerpt from

Ch. 5 No. 2 The Charter of Ralf Hanselin (Anselin) TO HIS LORD HENRY, KING OF ENGLAND, RAD ANSEL, HEALTH AND FAITHFUL SERVICE: KNOW YE THAT IN THE TIME OF KING HENRY YOUR GRANDFATHER I HAD THE FOLLOWING KNIGHTS OF THE OLD FEOFFMENT: ...

13. —Roger Bussard held one-twelfth of one fee of the purchase of the Bishop Robert Bloet, whose mother he married, which I hold of you in chief of that land, the Bishop disseized the this same land. Ralf fil Hugh Crumwell holds.

Note.—This is a well-known family settled in Lincolnshire and Leicestershire at the time of Domesday, tenants of Robert Todeni, lord of Belvoir, and, indeed, the progenitors of the House of Albini, one member of which succeeded to the inheritance of Belvoir by marriage with a co-heir of Robert Todeni. They acquired the name of Bosco Rohardi (here abbreviated) from their residence at the place, part of the Honour of St. Sauveur in the Cotentin, the hereditary possession of the family. (See the author's history of the House of Arundel.)

In the Anniversaria of Belvoir Priory is to be found the name of Helias Borrohard. He is probably identical with Helias de Albini, whose charter, attested by Audierno, his brother, is to be found in f. 120-b of that MS. (Harl MSS. 2044.)

Wm. fil Hugh disseized 100 solidates of land which I gave to my son of my own demesne.
