About William d'Aubigny, 3rd Earl of Arundel

[Pictured: Arundel Castle]

Sir William V "the Crusader" d'Aubigny, 3rd Earl of Arundel & Sussex, was born about 1173 in Arundel, Sussex, England and died on crusades, before 30 Mar 1221, in Cainell By Rome, Latium, Italy, the date news of his death reached England. He was buried in Wymondham Priory, Norfolk, England.

Note from Curator Pam Wilson: The d'Aubigny family tree is very complicated and there are at least two distinct lineages (Lords of Arundel and of Belvoir) in which the predominant male name is William. Please be very careful to make sure that you have the correct match if your merge two William d"Aubigny's together. The William d'Aubigny of Belvoir, a cousin to this man, is often spelled as d'Albini.

This William was the son of William IV d'Aubigny (2nd Earl of Arundel and Sussex) and Matilda/Maud de Saint-Hilaire de Harcouet.

Circa 1196, William married Mabel de Meschines of Chester, Cheshire, England, who was born about 1173, the daughter of Earl of Chester Hugh of Kevelioc de Meschines and Bertrade de Montfort.

They had seven known children:

  • Maud/Mabel d'Aubigny b abt 1196, d 1238-1242. md Robert de Tattershall bef 1222, son of Walter de Tattershall and Iseult Pantulf.
  • William d'Aubigny VI, 4th Earl of Sussex and Arundel, b abt 1198, d bef 7 Aug 1224 (prob unmarried; no heirs).
  • Cicely d'Aubigny b abt 1200, Arundel, Sussex, England; md Roger de Mohaut.
  • Isabel d'Aubigny b abt 1203, Arundel, Sussex, England, d bef 1240. She md Sir John Fitz Alan, Lord of Clun and Oswestry, abt 1215, son of William Fitz Alan and Miss de Lacy.

  • Colette d'Aubigny b. 1211 - d. bef. 7 May 1243

He succeeded to the title of Earl of Sussex on 24 December 1193.

He succeeded to the title of 3rd Earl of Arundel [E., c. 1138] on 24 December 1193.

On 15 May 1213 he witnessed the concession by King John of the Kingdom to the Pope.

He was with King John at Runnymeade 15 Jun 1215, but when King John abandoned Winchester the following June, d'Aubigny abandoned him in favor of Louis VIII of France.

On 14 June 1216 he joined Prince Louis (later Louis VIII of France) after King John abandoned Winchester.

On 14 July 1217 he returned to King John's allegiance after the Royalist victory at Lincoln (consistently taking the winning side).

In late 1217, King Henry II restored his forfeited possessions and appointed him Justiciar of England. In 1218, he embarked on the Fifth Crusade, was present at the taking of Damietta in Nov 1219, but died in Italy on his journey home.

His sons, William and Hugh, successively Earls of Arundel and Sussex, both died without heirs, and upon Hugh's death, the earldom of Sussex reverted to the Crown while the earldom of Arundel passed to John FitzAlan, son of William's daughter Isabel, who inherited jure matris the castle and honour of Arundel in 1243, by which, according to the admission of 1433, he was held to have become de jure 6th Earl of Arundel.
