Fledaldus Senescal

Son Of Alan Seneschal (Dapifer) of Dol and Margaret of Scotland

Father Of Alan FitzFlaald Dol

Brother Of Fledaldus "Flaald" FitzAlan Dapifer of Senescal of Dol

Birth Date 1046

Death Date 1084

Birth Location Dol De Bretagne, Ille Et Vilaine, France

Death Location Dol, Brittany, France

Flaad or Fleance, after his father's death, sought protection of Griffith ap Llewllyn, Prince of North Wales, and abused his confidence by winning the affections of his daughter, the Princess Gwenta, who, after a private marriage, though history fails to record one, gave birth to a son, whom all legends agree in naming Alan, but she and her lover were put to death by her irate father.

Flaald or Fleald; living 1080; active on the Welsh border c1101. [Burke'sPeerage] .....................................

The traditional account of the descent of the family of Stewart from Banquo, Thane of Lochaber, and through him from the ancient kings of Scotland, is now generally discredited. The research of recent years makes it more certain that the Stewarts or Stuarts are of Breton origin, descended from a family which held the office of Senescal or Steward of Dol, under the Counts of Dol and Dinan, in Brittany (to whom it is supposed they were related) in the eleventh century. In the Chartulary of the Abbey of St. Florent we find in 1080 and again in 1086 ' Alauus Senescallus ' or ' Alanus Dapifer Dolensis,' witnessing grants of laud to the Abbey, of which he was himself a benefactor, as is proved by a deed (ante 1080), to which his brother Fledaldus consents, granting to the Abbey a site for a church. From another deed it appears he had a third brother Rivallon, who entered into religion as a monk at Mezuoit. Alan the Senescal engaged in the crusade of 1097, and died apparently without issue. The lands and office of Senescal of Dol reverted to Fledaldus or Flaald, who had a son:? [

Flaad had come to the favorable notice of King Henry I of England.
