I found the following record just now in the helpful online A2A Catalogue (http://www.catalogue.nationalarchives.gov.uk/search.asp):

DL 25/2299

Agreement (chirograph) between Patrick de Chaworth (Chauz) and Hawise de London, his wife, and Henry de Tracy, concerning the manor of East Garston, Berkshire and the advowson of the church. If the said Patrick have no heirs by the said Hawise, the manor and advowson to revert to the heris of Hawise. If Hawise die before she have heirs by the said Patrick, the manor and advowson, which they have granted to Eve de Tracy for life, shall revert at the death of the said Eve to Patrick, for life, and at his death to the heirs of Hawise.

This document was apparently created at the time Patrick de Chaworth married Hawise de London, the half-sister of Henry de Tracy. This would have been on or before before 19 Dec. 1243, when Patrick and Hawise were known to have been married. The document also shows that Hawise's mother, Eve Fitz Warin, wife of Oliver de Tracy (died 1210) and Thomas de London (died before 1221) went by the name, Eve de Tracy, in the 1240's. This does not preclude the possibility that Eve Fitz Warin married (3rd) Thomas Mauduit (died 1244).

Date and place of birth have also been (erroneously?) reported to be 1170 at Stanway, Gloucestershire, England.

research shows that Warin de Bassingbourne (died 1229) of Bassingbourne and Meldreth, co. Cambridge was married before 1228 to Eve de Tracy, daughter of Oliver de Tracy, baron of Barnstaple, Devon, by his wife, Eve, probably one of the daughters and co-heiresses of Matthew de Torrington. Eve's identity and parentage are proved by suits published in the Curia Regis Rolls. There is no question which Tracy family she belongs to as she had the manor of Morebath, Devonshire given to her in marriage by her brother, Henry de Tracy. In 1265, her son, Sir Warine de Bassingbourne presented James de St. Victore, clerk, as rector of Morebath, Devon, proving that Eve was his mother [Reference: Rev. F.C. Hingeston-Randolph, Registers of Walter Bronescombe and Peter Quivil, Bishops of Exeter, published 1889, pg. 156]. In addition to the son and heir, Warin, Warin Sr. and Eve de Tracy also had a daughter, Emma (died before 1276), who married Sir Lawrence de Seymour, ancestor of the Lords Saint Maur. Eve de Tracy, wife of Warin de Bassingbourne, was kin to the Chaworth family, by virtue of her mother, Eva's second marriage to Thomas de London. Eve de Tracy's half-sister was Hawise de London, who married Patrick de Chaworth. The parentage of Eva, and her relationship to the main Tracy family shown above, has not been traced. She could have been the widow of Oliver de Tracy. The king ordered the sheriff of Berkshire to "take into the king’s hands" the lands of "Fulk fitz Warin and Eva de Tracy and her sister on account of the son and heir of Thomas de London, who they detain from the king", dated to [1218/19][173]. This document suggests that Eva was closely related to Fulk FitzWarin [III], maybe his sister. Her first marriage is confirmed by an order to the sheriff of Devon to take "the daughter and heiress of Thomas of London [if] found in his bailiwick" and "if she has been abducted out of the bailiwick" to confiscate the lands of "Eva de Tracy her mother", dated to [1218/19][174]. "Eva de Tracy" paid a fine for "having a weekly market…at her manor of Bovey", dated 23 Oct 1219[175]. "William Crassus the first-born" paid a fine to marry "the daughter and heiress of Thomas de London", dated to [Dec] 1219[176]. "Eva de Tracy" made a fine for marrying "Hawise her daughter…without licence", dated [Jun] 1222[177]. The Pipe Roll 1223 records “Eva de Tracy...quia maritavit Hawisam filiam suam sine licencia R. que fuit de donatione sue” owing in “Nova Oblata” in Devon[178]. “Paganus de Cadurcis filius et hæres dominæ Hawisiæ de Londonia” donated land to Whiteland, Carmarthenshire, for the souls of “dominorum Thomæ de Londonia, Patricii de Cadurcis, Will. et Mauricii de Londonia, Warini de Bassingburne, dominæ Evæ de Tracy, Aleys et Gundre defunctorum”, by charter dated May 1270, witnessed by “dominis Patricio et Hernico militibus, fratribus nostris”[179].

i) OLIVER de Tracy of Barnstaple (-after 1203)

No primary source has yet been identified which confirms this supposed first marriage. However, if Eva was his known wife, and she had children by her first marriage who had not reached the age of majority by [1218/19] (see below), it is unlikely that she was the only wife of Oliver who was already old enough in 1146 to suscribe a charter with his father.] m [secondly] [as her second husband,] EVA, widow of THOMAS de London, daughter of [FULK FitzWarin [II] & his wife Hawise de Dinan] (-after [Jun] 1222).

The parentage of Eva, and her relationship to the main Tracy family shown above, has not been traced. She could have been the widow of Oliver de Tracy.

Comment by Douglas Richardson:

Elsewhere, I note that you have identified Hawise de London's mother, Eve, as a possible daughter of Matthew de Torrington. This allegation is doubtless derived from the usually reliable work, English Baronies, by Sanders. Sanders showed that Eve's son by her 1st marriage, Henry de Tracy, had a one fifth share of the Torrington estates. On this basis, good people such as Mr. Weber have postulated that Henry de Tracy's mother was a Torrington heiress. However, this is a rare instance of where a person bought his interest and did not inherit it, which fact Sanders overlooked. As such, there is no descent whatsoever from the Torrington family. Rather, Eve's maritagium appears to have been an estate in Westbury, Wiltshire which she held of the Fitz Warn family. As such, she was almost certainly the daughter of Fulk Fitz Warin, of Whittington, Shropshire, by his wife, Hawise de Dinan. The given name Eve ran in the Fitz Warin family.
