About Letitia FitzRobert of Malpas

Letitia (born about 1100) was the daughter and co-heir of Robert fitz Hugh, base born son of Hugh "Lupus" d'Avranches, 1st Earl of Chester. Robert had two daughters, Letitia the wife of Richard Patric; and Mabilia, the wife of William Belward


From http://cybergata.com/roots/7733.htm

Robert Fitz-Hugh, whose name appears as a witness to the foundation charter of St. Werburgh's Abbey at Chester in 1093, had two daughters, Letitia and Mabilla*, who in course of time, became his heirs, and the latter of whom afterwards married William le Belward, of Malpas, son of John le Belward, who was living in the time of William Rufus, and is believed to have been one of the five knights mentioned in the Domesday as holding their lands of the Norman baron. To this, the Lady Mabilla* conveyed her moiety of the Malpas barony, and from this marriage sprang the house of Egerton.

Robert Fitz Hugh, Baron of Malpas, where he had a castle, did not have sons. During the reign of Richard I, the barony passed in right of his coheiresses by moieties, to Robert Patrick and David Belward, or le Clerk. The daughter and eventually sole heiress of the Patricks, brought this moiety into the Sutton family. On the death of William de Malpas, son of David le Clerk, without lawful issue, his illegitimate son David, possessed himself of his father's moiety, which was inherited by the posterity of his two daughters. Beatrice, one of these daughters brought a fourt part of the barony in marriage, to the Suttons, in which nearly the whole appears to have been vested during the reign of Henry VII.
