Some corrections and additions to the Complete Peerage: Volume 3: Honour of Clare

CLARE (honour of)

Volume 3, page 243:
RICHARD FITZGILBERT, styled also DE CLARE, Lord of Clare, &c., [d. 1136] ... He m. Adeliz, sister of Ranulph "des Gernons," EARL OF CHESTER. ... His widow was rescued from the Welsh by Miles of Gloucester.

C. W. Foster suggested - as a conjecture - that Adeliz might have remarried to Robert de Condet (d. 10 October, perhaps 1140) [The Registrum Antiqissimum of the Cathedral Church of Lincoln, vol. 1 (Lincoln Record Society vol. 27, 1931), p. 289]. This suggestion is accepted by K. S. B. Keats-Rohan [Domesday Descendants, p. 425].

[This problem and related ones were discussed in February 2004 by Jim Weber, Todd Farmerie, Rosie Bevan, Tim Powys-Lybbe, Peter Stewart and John Ravilious.
