The 1130 Pipe Roll records "Normano de Verduim" exempted in Staffordshire and "pro terra patris sui" in Leicestershire[635]. “…Normannus de Verdune…” witnessed the undated charter under which "Enisanus et Ernaldus filius meus" donated "ecclesiam S. Ulfadi de Stanes" to Kenilworth[636].

m LESCELINE de Clinton, daughter of GEOFFREY de Clinton & his wife Lesceline ---.

It is not known whether William’s brother "Bertrannum" was the same person as Bertram de Verdun, son of Norman de Verdun.

Botulfi de Culfo” to Leeston, on the request of “Matildis uxoris meæ”, as donated by “Willielmus de Valeines pater predictæ uxoris meæ”, by undated charter, sealed by “sigilllo Wydonis patris mei”[642].

"William Tollemache and Alice his wife" paid a fee for "having a pone" for their claim against "Guy de Verdun and Alice his wife" relating to land "in Kettleburgh" in Suffolk, dated 18 Jan 1219[644]. Bracton records a claim, dated 1225, by "Willelmus Talesmasche et Alicia uxor eius" against "Widonem de Verdun et Aliciam uxorem eius" for a fine "in Hecham", the defendant claiming that "Robertus de Cokefeldia frater…Sabina […antecessor Willelmi et Alicia]" had granted the land "in maritagium Willelmo de Valeines cum Alicia sorore sua", that it passed to "Ade […filium Roberti filii Umfridi] filii predicte Sabine"[645]. Guy & his wife had one child: (1) WILLIAM de Verdun (-after 1210). The Complete Peerage states that "William de Verdon and his wife Maud, sister of Isabel, wife of Osbert de Wachesham" are named in a lawsuit concerning land at Cransford, Suffolk, dated 1205/06, but does not cite the primary source[646]. The Red Book of the Exchequer records "Willelmus de Verdum" holding a fourth part of one knight’s fee "in Culfho" in Lancashire in [1210/12][647]. “Willielmus de Verdune” confirmed the donation of “ecclesiæ S.

Her precise parentage is not known, but both the chronology and the name of her son suggest that Alice was probably the daughter of Norman de Verdun. m [as his second wife,] IVO Pantulf, son of [ROBERT Pantulf & his wife ---] (-after [1175/76]).]
