Name: James de ST. HILARY , of Dalling, Sir 1 2 3 4 5

SAINT-HILAIRE, DE SANCTO HILARIO.
Saint-Hilaire-du-Harcouet: Manche, arr. Mortain.
Documentary proof that James de Sancto Hilario took his name from this place has been given in 'Early Yorkshire Charters', vol. v, pp. 86-7. James was the son of Harculf de St. James, taking his name from St. James-de-Beuvron (arr. Avranches) nearby. Gerville described the remains of the castle at St-Hilaire in 1827.

According to most reconstructions, the James de St. Hillary in question, father of Maud, is not this son of Peter, but rather Peter's brother James, another son of Harscoit de Saint-James.
