About 2nd wife of Gospatric

Earl Gospatrick & [his wife] had three children: Ethelreda, Gunhilda, Matilda

  • http://fmg.ac/Projects/MedLands/SCOTTISH%20NOBILITY.htm#GospatrickD... " A memorandum dated to [1275] records that "Earl Cospatryk formerly earl of Dunbar in Scotland had a brother Dolfin earl of Northumbarland…both…bastards", that they had "a legitimate brother Waldeve and a legitimate sister Etheldreda…of one father and one mother"[1409].  No other information has been found to identify Ethelreda’s mother more precisely.  Her marriage to the heir to the Scottish throne does suggest that she must have been legitimate.  However, that suggestion appears inconsistent with her sharing the same mother as Gospatrick’s son Waltheof, in relation to whom there do seem to be indications of his illegitimacy whatever is stated in the [1275] memorandum. "

From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Waltheof_of_Allerdale

The account of Waltheof and his family in Cumbrian monastic cartularies (St Bees and Wetheral), says that he gave land in Allerdale to his three sisters, Octreda, Gunhilda and Maud.[1]
