  • ID: I01926
  • Name: William Seigneur d' AUBIGNY 1 2 3
  • Sex: M
  • ALIA: William d' /Alibini/
  • Birth: ABT 1010 in St. Martin d'Aubigny, Manche, Normandy, France 4
  • Death: AFT 1066 5
  • Note:
    William d'Aubigny, Seigneur of Aubigny (subsequently Saint-Martin d'Aubigny), Normandy; married by 1048 sister of Grimald de Plessis. [Burke's Peerage]

    ---------------------------------

    Aubigny, Alibini, etc., Earls of Arundel

    Saint-Martin d'Aubigny: Manche, arr. Coutances, cant. Periers.

    The early history of the family will be found in The Complete Peerage, surname Mowbray, new ed., vol. ix, pp. 366-7. The details of their benefactions to the abbey of Lessay as confirmed by a charter of Henry II, 1185-1188, identify St-Martin d'Aubigny with the Aubigny which was the caput of their Norman honour; thus the "ecclesiam de Folgeriis" is Feugeres 2 1/2 kil. SE of Aubigny, the "feria Sancti Christofori" mentioned in conjunction with the "forum Albinneii" is St-Christophe-d'Aubigny, a parish now united to that of St-Martin, and "Marchesis" is Marchesieux, 5 kil. NE of Aubigny. There is no trace of a feudal castle at Aubigny itself, but Gerville found nearby at Le Mesnil-Vigot the remains of a considerable castle with a well-defined motte, then known as "le chateau de St-Clair".

    The following info was provided in a post-em by Curt Hofemann, curt_hofemann AT yahoo.com:

    A few more dribs & brabs:

    Seigneur of Aubigny (Albiniacum) [Ref: CP IX:366, Holloway p20]

    (in conjunction with son Roger) benefactor of the Abbey of Lessay [Ref: CP IX:366]

    William d'Aubigny, first of the name, married the sister of Grimoult [Ref: McBride citing the Harleian Society, Vol 80, "Knights of Edward I" Vol 1 (A to E), with additions from Crispin and Macary, p6-7]

    William d'Aubigny, of St. Martin d'Aubigny, who married the sister of Grimauld de Plessis, (some reconstructions make him older brother instead) [Ref: TAF 21 May 2002] Note: the village of Saint Martin d'Aubigny is 16 km. west of St-Lo and 15 km. north of Coutances, in Normandy. The other (unrelated) Aubigny/Albini line is from St. Aubin Aubigné, a different town... Curt

    married bef 1048: [Ref: Holloway p20], names: William D'AUBIGNEY & ___ PLESSIS [Ref: CP IX:366, Holloway p20]

    Research note: As to the link to the Saint Sauvieur line, there is nothing to it - just a guess based on the names of William and Nigel occuring in both families. [Ref: TAF 21 May 2002] Would love to see an expansion/basis of this... Curt
