About William 'the Crusader' d'Aubigny, 3rd Earl of Arundel

Pictured: Arundel Castle

William d'Aubigny was born about 1165 in Arundel, Sussex, England and died before 30 Mar 1221 in Cainell By Rome, Latium, Italy . He was the son of William d'Aubigny (Earl of Arundel and Sussex) and Maud de Saint Hilary.

William married Mabel de Meschines of Chester, Cheshire, England. Mabel was born about 1173, the daughter of Earl of Chester Hugh of Kevelioc de Meschines and Bertrade de Montfort.

William - When his father died he was in ward to King Henry II and, in 1194, he was in the army of Richard I in Normandy. Already a wealthy man at the time of the accession of John to the throne, he received several additional grants of great value. In 1201, when the Barons refused to follow their Sovereign into France, King John demanded that their castles should be given up to him as security for their allegiance, beginning with William d'Albini; and therewith Belvoir Castle, instead of which d'Albini gave him his son, William, as a hostage.


William d'Albini was one of the King's foremost financial officers. Before 1200 he had been custodian sheriff, a sort of tax collector and treasurer combined. After 1200 King John appointed him one of the justices or "exchequers" of the Jews. As such he kept a record of all royal debts to Jews, and of payments made to them. Possibly such an official settled disputes connected with money-lending operations. The Jews were a powerful source of revenue, which the King desired to protect to his own interest. From Michaelmas 1210 to mid-Lent of 1211, William and five other Barons were in charge of customs duties on dyes and grain. In 1213 we find him involved in a baronial investigation committee, which sought to unearth evidence of alleged embezzlements charged to certain sheriffs.

Children:

i. Nicole d'Albiny was born about 1210 in Arundel, Sussex, England and died in 1240 in Dudley Castle, Staffordshire, England . Nicole married Baron Roger Dudley de Somery about 1225 in Sussex, England. Baron Roger was born about 1208, lived in Dinas Powls, Wales. He was the son of Ralph de Somery and Margaret Fitzgilbert. He died before 26 Aug 1273 in Staffordshire, England . -------------------- Note from Pam Wilson: The d'Aubigny family tree is very complicated since there are at least two distinct lineages (Lords of Arundel and of Belvoir) in which the predominant male name is William. I've been trying to sort these out on Geni. Please be very careful to make sure that you have the correct match if your merge two William d"Aubigny's together.

-------------------- A favorite of King John, he is stated to have "consistently taken the winning side", first being with the King at Runnymeade 15 Jun 1215, abandoning him in favor of Louis VIII of France when King John abandoned Winchester the following June, then returning to King John's allegiance after the Royalist victory at Lincoln in July 1217. Shortly afterwards, he was appointed Justiciar, the young King, Henry III, having restored to him his forfeited possessions. He embarked on the Crusade of 1218, and was present at the taking of Damietta in Nov 1219, but died shortly before 30 March 1221 in Cainell, near Rome. His sons, William and Hugh, successively Earls of Arundel and Sussex, both died s.p., and upon the death of the younger son, Hugh, his four sisters were found to be his coheirs. The earldom of Sussex reverted to the Crown.
