About Mathilde (Maud) de l'Aigle


[After Robert de Mowbray's imprisonment for his role in a rebellion,] Mowbray's wife, Matilda, was granted an annulment of her marriage by Pope Paschal II and sometime after 1107, she became the wife of Nigel d'Aubigny, who was also granted the lands in Montbray forfeited by her former husband. The couple remained childless and in 1118 d’Aubigny divorced Matilda and married Gundred de Gournay, daughter of Gerard de Gournay and Edith de Warenne. They had a son, Roger, who inherited the estates originally forfeited by Robert Mowbray. On receiving his inheritance Roger changed his name to Mowbray at the instruction of Henry I. Thus the name Mowbray was continued, but with no blood line from Robert de Mowbray.

From Medlands:

MATHILDE de Laigle (-[after Oct 1155][2789]). Orderic Vitalis names “Gislebertum Aquilensem et Engenulfum et Mathildem et alios plures filios et filias” as the children of “Richerium de Aquila Engenulfi filium” and his wife, adding that Mathilde married “Roberto de Molbraio comiti Nordanhumbrorum”[2790]. Her second marriage took place with the dispensation of Pope Paschal II, granted although her first husband was still living[2791]. The 1130 Pipe Roll records "Mathildi de Aqila" in Dorsetshire and exempted in Staffordshire[2792].
