ROBERT d'Ivry, son of --- (-[before 1050]). If the speculation about the parentage of his wife is correct as discussed below, Robert must have died before [1050/1060] (the precise date depends on the dating of a donation to Ouche made by Albreda´s supposed second husband, about which there is some doubt, see below) as his wife´s son by her supposed second marriage died in [1070 or 1080] when he was a young adult.

m as her first husband, ALBREDA, daughter of ---. Chibnall speculates that she may have been Albreda, [illegitimate] daughter of Hugues d'Ivry Bishop of Bayeux & his [wife/mistress ---], which may have provided her grandson with a claim to Ivry by inheritance[1375], assuming that her supposed illegitimacy presented no obstacle. This parentage is shown in Europäische Stammtafeln[1376] but it is not known whether this is based on a specific primary source or on Chibnall´s speculation. She married [secondly] ([1050] or [1060]) Albert de Cravent: Orderic Vitalis who records that “Radulfus tiro filius Alberti de Crevento” attacked “Guitmundum monachum...Manlia venientem in valle Guidonis” who returned on foot to Pacy and begged “Albertum” to protect him from “filium sibi”, on which “Alberada uxor eius” burst into tears, adding in a later passage that Raoul repented before he died, after which Albert in 1070 donated “medietatem decimæ de Ulmeio” to Ouche Saint-Evroul[1377]. There must be some doubt about the date of this event because Orderic Vitalis records Geoffroy Bishop of Chartres in the dating clause, although in another passage he records the appointment of Bishop Geoffroy in 1077[1378]. Le Prévost suggests that the donation should be redated to 1080[1379].

Robert & his wife had [three] children:

a) ROBERT d'Ivry . The primary source which confirms his parentage has not yet been identified. m HILDEBURGE de Gallardon, daughter of HERVE Seigneur de Gallardon & his wife Beatrix --- (-3 Jun [1116 or after], bur Pontoise Saint-Martin). The Vita Dominæ Hildeburgis names “Hildiburgis…de nobili prosapia in pago Carnotensi Castro Galardone exorta”, her parents “pater…Herveus Castri Galardonis dominus…genetrix…Beatrix”, and her husband “Roberto Ibriensi”, adding that she refused to remarry after her husband died[1380]. "Femina Hildeburgis de nobili prosapia in pago Carnotensi castro Galardone exorta" donated property to the abbey of Saint-Martin de Pontoise by charter dated during the reign of Philippe I King of France which names "pater…Hervæus Castri Galardonis…dominus…genitrix…Beatrix" and specifies that she married "Roberto Ibriensi" by whom she had three sons "primus Ascelinus cognomento Goellus, secundus Willelmus…milites…tertius Robertus clericus"[1381]. "Hildeburgis mater Goelli de Ibriaco" donated property to the abbey of Saint-Martin de Pontoise with the consent of "Goellus…uxoremque suam Isabel filiosque suos Willelmum atque Robertum" by charter dated [1116][1382]. The former document records the death of "Hildeburgis sanctimonialis…III Non Iun" and her burial "in ecclesia S Martini Pontisariensis". The Vita Dominæ Hildeburgis records the death “III Non Iun” of “Hildiburgis Sanctimonialis” and her burial “in ecclesia beati Martini Pontisariensis”[1383]. Robert & his wife had three children:

i) ASCELIN Goël (-after [1116]). The Vita Dominæ Hildeburgis names “primus Ascelinus cognominatus Goellus, secundus Wiltinus…[miles], tertius Roberti clericali ordine” as the three children of “Roberto Ibriensi” and his wife “Hildiburgis”[1384]. "Primus Ascelinus cognomento Goellus, secundus Willelms…milites…tertius Robertus clericus" are named as the three sons of "Roberto Ibriensi" & his wife under their mother's charter donating property to the abbey of Saint-Martin de Pontoise[1385]. Guillaume de Jumièges records that "Goellus de Breherii-valle" seized the castle of Ivry-la-Bataille (Eure) from Guillaume de Breteuil and surrendered it to Robert [III] Duke of Normandy[1386]. Orderic Vitalis records that, two years after the death of King William I [1089], “Ascelinus cognomento Goellus” captured “arcem Ibreii” from “Guillelmo Bretoliensi domino suo” and surrendered it to Duke Robert who resold it to Guillaume de Breteuil for “MD libras”, triggering a lengthy war[1387]. The same source records that, during the course of the war, “Guillelmum Bretoliensem” was captured and imprisoned, after which he agreed to the marriage of “Isabel filiam suam” to “Goello” as part of the peace agreement, dated to [1092][1388]. The resulting war with Guillaume ended with the latter's capture and agreement to Ascelin's marriage to his daughter[1389]. Another untraced family connection of Ascelin is indicated by a charter dated 1066 under which "Richardus Herluini filius, comitis Galerani Mellenti nepos" [vicomte de Meulan] donated property to Coulombs[1390], and a note in the cartulary of Coulombs, following this charter, which records that "Richardus" became a monk "cum filiis [Jordanum et Robertum]" at Coulombs where "habuerunt quemdam cognatum Ascelinum cognomento Goellum", and a second note that "Ascelinus Goellus" was the heir after the death of Richard´s sons Jourdain and Robert[1391]. "Hildeburgis mater Goelli de Ibriaco" donated property to the abbey of Saint-Martin de Pontoise with the consent of "Goellus…uxoremque suam Isabel filiosque suos Willelmum atque Robertum" by charter dated [1116][1392]. m ([1092]) ISABEL de Breteuil, [illegitimate] daughter of GUILLAUME de Breteuil & [his mistress ---] (-after [1116]). Orderic Vitalis records that “Guillelmum Bretoliensem” agreed to the marriage of “Isabel filiam suam” to “Goello” as part of the peace agreement between them, dated to [1092][1393]. The Vita Dominæ Hildeburgis names “Elisabeth” as wife of “Goellus”[1394]. She must have been illegitimate as the chronicler says in another passage that her father's marriage was childless[1395], unless she was born from an earlier otherwise unrecorded marriage of her father. The charter recording the donation of "femina Hildeburgis…" to the abbey of Saint-Martin de Pontoise (see above) names "Elisabeth" as wife of her son "Ascelinus…Goellus" and their sons "Robertus et Willelmus"[1396]. "Hildeburgis mater Goelli de Ibriaco" donated property to the abbey of Saint-Martin de Pontoise with the consent of "Goellus…uxoremque suam Isabel filiosque suos Willelmum atque Robertum" by charter dated [1116][1397]. Ascelin & his wife had [five or more] children:

(a) ROBERT d'Ivry'(-after 1118). The Vita Dominæ Hildeburgis names “Robertus et Wiltinus” as sons of “Goellus” and his wife “Elisabeth”[1398]. The charter recording the donation of "femina Hildeburgis…" to the abbey of Saint-Martin de Pontoise (see above) names "Elisabeth" as wife of her son "Ascelinus…Goellus" and their sons "Robertus et Willelmus"[1399]. "Hildeburgis mater Goelli de Ibriaco" donated property to the abbey of Saint-Martin de Pontoise with the consent of "Goellus…uxoremque suam Isabel filiosque suos Willelmum atque Robertum" by charter dated [1116][1400]. "Robert son of Ascelin Goël" joined the rebellion against Henry I King of England in 1118, but rejoined the king who committed the castle of Ivry to him to guarantee his loyalty[1401]. m ---, daughter of ---. Raoul "le Rouge" de Pont-Echanfray was brother-in-law of Robert Goël, according to Orderic Vitalis[1402].

(b) GUILLAUME "Lovel" d'Ivry (-after 1153). The Vita Dominæ Hildeburgis names “Robertus et Wiltinus” as sons of “Goellus” and his wife “Elisabeth”[1403]. The charter recording the donation of "femina Hildeburgis…" to the abbey of Saint-Martin de Pontoise (see above) names "Elisabeth" as wife of her son "Ascelinus…Goellus" and their sons "Robertus et Willelmus"[1404]. "Hildeburgis mater Goelli de Ibriaco" donated property to the abbey of Saint-Martin de Pontoise with the consent of "Goellus…uxoremque suam Isabel filiosque suos Willelmum atque Robertum" by charter dated [1116][1405]. Son of Ascelin according to Orderic Vitalis, who specifies that he inherited the castle of Ivry after the death of his brother Robert and records his marriage[1406]. He rebelled against Henry I King of England in Sep 1123, with his brothers-in-law Waléran de Meulan, Hugues de Montfort and Hugues de Châteauneuf[1407]. Robert of Torigny records "discordia inter Symonem comitem Ebroicensem" and "filios Ascelini Goelli, scilicet et Willermum Lupellum et Rogerium Balbosum" in 1153[1408]. m ([1120]) MATHILDE de Beaumont, daughter of ROBERT de Beaumont-le-Roger Comte de Meulan, Earl of Leicester & his wife Elisabeth de Vermandois [Capet]. Orderic Vitalis records Waleran Comte de Meulan having three sisters (whom he does not name), one of whom he married to "Guillaume Lovel son of Ascelin"[1409]. The primary source which confirms her name has not yet been identified.

(c) brothers . Orderic Vitalis records that they were given as hostages to Henry I King of England to guarantee the good conduct of their brother Robert[1410].

(d) ROGER "Balbosus" (-after 1153). Robert of Torigny records "discordia inter Symonem comitem Ebroicensem" and "filios Ascelini Goelli, scilicet et Willermum Lupellum et Rogerium Balbosum" in 1153[1411].

Ascelin had [two] illegitimate children by an unknown mistress:

(e) ROBERT (-after [1116]). "Roberti Bastardi Rufi filii eiusdem Goelli, Gauterii de Sparnone fratris eiusdem Roberti" subscribed the charter dated [1116] under which "Hildeburgis mater Goelli de Ibriaco" donated property to the abbey of Saint-Martin de Pontoise[1412].

(f) [GAUTHIER (-after [1116]). "Roberti Bastardi Rufi filii eiusdem Goelli, Gauterii de Sparnone fratris eiusdem Roberti" subscribed the charter dated [1116] under which "Hildeburgis mater Goelli de Ibriaco" donated property to the abbey of Saint-Martin de Pontoise[1413]. It is assumed that Gauthier was also the son of Ascelin Goël, although the wording of this charter does not exclude the possibility that he was the uterine brother of Robert.]

ii) GUILLAUME Goël . The Vita Dominæ Hildeburgis names “primus Ascelinus cognominatus Goellus, secundus Wiltinus…[miles], tertius Roberti clericali ordine” as the three children of “Roberto Ibriensi” and his wife “Hildiburgis”[1414]. "Primus Ascelinus cognomento Goellus, secundus Willelms…milites…tertius Robertus clericus" are named as the three sons of "Roberto Ibriensi" & his wife under their mother's charter donating property to the abbey of Saint-Martin de Pontoise[1415]. He was tried by Guillaume de Breteuil for having "done an injury to a certain woman at Pacy", providing the pretext for his brother's attack on Ivry[1416].

iii) ROBERT . The Vita Dominæ Hildeburgis names “primus Ascelinus cognominatus Goellus, secundus Wiltinus…[miles], tertius Roberti clericali ordine” as the three children of “Roberto Ibriensi” and his wife “Hildiburgis”[1417]. "Primus Ascelinus cognomento Goellus, secundus Willelms…milites…tertius Robertus clericus" are named as the three sons of "Roberto Ibriensi" & his wife under their mother's charter donating property to the abbey of Saint-Martin de Pontoise[1418].

b) [ROGER d'Ivry (-after 24 Apr 1089). No information has so far been found on the parentage of Roger, but presumably he was closely connected to Robert d'Ivry, husband of Aubrée. Seigneur d'Ivry. Pincerna of William I King of England. He founded the abbey of Ivry-la-Balluis[1419]. An undated manuscript records that “Robertus de Oili” built "castellum Oxonii” in 1072 and that "Robertus de Oili et Rogerus de Iveri" built the church of St George in Oxford castle in 1074[1420]. Domesday Book records land held by “Roger d´Ivry” in Bucklebury, Eagle, Blewbury and Gainfield Hundreds in Berkshire, land in Ixhill, Mursley and Rowley Hundreds in Buckinghamshire, and "Robert d´Oilly and Roger d´Ivry" holding Stowe in Buckinghamshire from the bishop of Bayeux in Buckinghamshire and Arncott from the abbot of Abingdon St Mary in Oxfordshire, "Roger d´Ivry" other properties in Oxfordshire[1421]. His parentage has not yet been ascertained, but from a chronological point of view he could have been the son of Guillaume d´Ivry. The joint activities with Robert de Oilly suggest a family relationship. He held Cottisford from his father-in-law in 1086 in Domesday Book[1422].] m ADELINE de Grantmesnil, daughter of HUGUES de Grantmesnil & his wife Adelisa [Aelis] de Beaumont-sur-Oise (-[1110/11]). Orderic Vitalis names “Adelinam et Hadvisam, Rochesiam et Mathildem et Agnetem” as the daughters of “Hugo de Grentemaisnilio” and his wife “Adelidem filiam Ivonis comitis de Bellomonte”, adding that Adeline married “Rogerio de Ibreio”[1423]. Domesday Book records “the wife of Roger d´Ivry” holding land in Islip, Kiddington and Oddington in Oxfordshire[1424]. The Chronicle of Abingdon records that "nobilis...matrona Athelina de Hiuerio" donated land "apud...Faineote" to Abingdon in [1110/11] and that “filia eiusdem Adeliz” later confirmed the donation[1425]. She died soon after making grants to Abingdon Abbey in [1110/11][1426]. Roger & his wife had one child:

i) ADELISE d'Ivry (-after [Jun] 1133). Daughter and heiress of Roger d'Ivry and Adelina de Grantmesnil, she is named in her mother's grants to Abingdon Abbey in [1110/11]. The Chronicle of Abingdon records that "nobilis...matrona Athelina de Hiuerio" donated land "apud...Faineote" to Abingdon in [1110/11] and that “filia eiusdem Adeliz” later confirmed the donation[1427]. King Henry I confirmed the donation of "the manor of Rowington in Warwickshire" to Reading St Mary made by “Adelicia de Evereio”, by charter dated [Jun] 1133[1428].

c) [HUGUES d´Ivry (-after 1085). Domesday Book records “Hugh d´Ivry” holding Ambrosden from the king in Oxfordshire[1430]. No information has so far been found on the parentage of Hugues, but presumably he was closely connected to Robert d'Ivry, husband of Aubrée.]
