About Isabella DeCorbeil

In 1080, Gilbert de Corbeil, grandson of Werlac, married Isabella Lupus, daughter of Richard Avranches, a descendant of Hrollarf, son of Rognvald and brother of Rollo. Hrollarf and his family retained the wolf's head insignia and this was the insignia of the Lupus family. Any descendant of this marriage had the right to "impale" or add as a quartering the original wolf's head

as the symbol of the Lupus or Avranches family. Isabella's generation was the last to be allowed to pass on the arms to descendants though the female line.

Isabella and Gilbert's son Robert acquired the manor of Peshale and the name "de Peshale" which later became Pearsall.

12. Gilbert7 de Corbeil (Regnault6, Guillaume surnamed5 Werlac, Mauger4 de Normandii, Richard I the Fearless,3 , Guillaume I, William Longsword2, Robert (Rollo)1 Rognavaldsson) was born 1049 or 1052.

He married Isabella Lupus. Isabella was born 1061. Isabella was the daughter of Richard de Goz de Avranches and Emma de Conteville. She was a descendant of Rognvald The Wolf and his son Hrollauf, son of the slave woman. She was the daughter of Richard de Goz, de Avranches, and his wife Emma de Conteville, half-sister by the same mother (by her second husband Herlwin) of William Duke of Normandy, surnamed the Conqueror. Gilbert probably abducted her as was the custom. Family tradition tells that her parents disapproved. Gilbert was about four or five years old when his grandfather Werlac was banished from Normandy and his estates of Corbeil and Mortaigne confiscated. Since his mother was a member of the Bernician nobility, she had lands in Bernicia from her dowry. Gilbert grew up there. It is ironic that the father of his future wife was one of the conspirators who dispossessed Werlac and thus took the great wealth enjoyed by the family to that time away from their descendants.

Isabella and Gilbert met at the time of the migration to the vicinity of Stone Priory.

Their children were educated in Northumberland in "the best schools in Europe, those intended for Norsemen." (Ibid p. 152)d

Gilbert de Corbeil had the following child:
