Some corrections and additions to the Complete Peerage: Volume 7: Lincoln (PROPOSED CORRECTIONS)

Volume 7, page 670:
He [William de Roumare (d. 1151)] m. Agnes, 4th da. of Stephen, COUNT OF AUMALE. ... His widow m. Piers DE BRUS.(k)
Note k:
Bowles, Lacock Abbey, p. 77 (from T. Stapleton).

According to K.S.B. Keats-Rohan, Agnes of Aumale married firstly Adam I de Brus of Skelton (d.1143), and secondly William de Roumare [Domesday Descendants, p. 267, 354 (2002), citing Ruth Blakeley, Yorkshire Archaeological Journal, vol. 73, pp. 19-28 (2001)].

[This discrepancy was pointed out by Rosie Bevan in June 2002, and further discussed by Henry Sutliff and Cris Nash in June and July.]

Volume 7, page 672:
GILBERT DE GANT or GAUNT, s. and h. of Walter DE GANT, by Maud, da. of Stephen, COUNT OF BRITTANY, was b. circa 1120, at Bridlington, and bap. there.

A charter of Walter de Gant, his wife and his heir (ego Walterus et uxor mea et haeres meus) for Bardney Abbey must be dated between 1114 and 1120, as it refers to Ralph, Archbishop of Canterbury, and Walter's lord, Richard [Earl of Chester] [Monasticon Anglicanum, vol. 1, pp. 628, 629]. If Gilbert is the heir referred to, he must have been born rather earlier than 1120.

Volume 7, page 690:
His [John de la Pole's, Earl of Lincoln (d.1487)] widow Margaret was living in 1493 or later.(c)
Note c:
In a bill addressed to Cardinal Morton as Chancellor (1493-1500) Margaret, widow of John, Earl of Lincoln, claimed a rent of £20 from the manor of Bromholm, settled on her at her marriage (Early Chanc. Proc., bdle. 212, no. 18).

Douglas Richardson, in May 2002, posted evidence that Margaret was still living in 1524, when she was mentioned in her father's will [citing H.A. Napier, Historical Notices of the Parishes of Swyncombe and Ewelme in the County of Oxford, p. 155 (1858)].
