About Malahulc / Haldrick Eysteinsson

Malahulc (erroneously called Malahule, Malahue or similar) is mentioned by historian Orderic Vitalis as the paternal uncle of Rollo (Ganger-Rolf). He could be the father of Robert and Hugo described below, but there is great uncertainty, since primary sources are not identified.

If Rollo's ancestry is as described by Snorre, this would make him the brother of Ragnvald Mørejarl, but no direct mention of this relationship exists.

Norman historian André Davy (Les Barons du Cotentin, Marigny: Editions Eurocibles, 2009, p. 55) lists among his children Richard de Cotentin (ancestor of the barons of Saint-Sauveur), Hugues de Cavalcamp and Ralph de Bayeux.

1. HUGUES de Calvacamp, son of --- . He is named only in the Acta Archiepiscorum Rothomagensium which names his son "Radulfo…filio Hugonis de Calvacamp"[2843].

Guillaume of Jumièges names [his great-grandson] “Rogerius Toenites de stirpe Malahulcii qui Rollonis ducis patruus fuerat”[2844], which suggests that Malahulc was the ancestor of Hugues de Calvacamp, Hugues´s wife, or the wife of Raoul [I] de Tosny. m ---. The name of Hugues's wife is not known. Guillaume of Jumièges names [his great-grandson] “Rogerius Toenites de stirpe Malahulcii qui Rollonis ducis patruus fuerat”[2845], which suggests that Malahulc was the ancestor of Hugues de Calvacamp, Hugues´s wife, or the wife of Raoul [I] de Tosny. Hugues & his wife had two children:

a) RAOUL [I] (-after 1 May 991).
