  • Gilbert De NEVILLE
  • Born: ABT 1050, Neville, Seine-Inferieure, Normandy, France
  • Notes: held in the year 1086 carucates (area of land that could be cultivated by an eight-ox plough team throughout a single year) at Waltcot, Lincolnshire and Yawthorpe, together with others in that part of England by 1115-18; kinship is plausible but has not been provern with son Geoffrey. (Burke's Peerage]. A reported Companion in arms to William the Conqueror, and by some genealogists, Admiral of the fleet of William the Conqueror. An uncle of Gilbert, Foulk d'Anjou furnished 40 ships for the fleet. Evidently there is some evidence from one of Alan's charters granting some land to Kirkstead Abbey was given in the presence of the bishop of Lincoln and witnessed by Alan's brother Gilbert and his son Geoffrey. Source: B.L., Cotton Mss., Verpasian EXVIII, f. 159v, Gilbert is identified as his brother by Alan in Harley Charters 58 H4. There is evidently a witness list of one of Gilberts charters that names his two sons William and Walter and includes Alan, son of Ernise.
