    EARLDOM OF WILTSHIRE (III)

    EARLDOM OF SALISBURY (II)

    WILLIAM (of SALISBURY, styled also FITZPATRICK), EARL OF WILTSHIRE, styled always EARL OF SALISBURY, son and heir by 2nd wife, received the 3rd penny of Wilts in 1168. He remained loyal during the rebellion of the King's sons, 1173-74. In 1177 the Earl was one of those for whom the King provided a ship, for the crossing to Normandy in his train. He was sheriff of Wilts 1189-90 and 1191-96. At Richard's Coronation, 3 September 1189, he bore the sceptre with the dove; and he appears to have been in close attendance upon the King until he left Dover for Normandy, 12 December. In 1190-91 he served personally in Wales. From Lent to the Close of Easter 1194 he was sheriff of Dorset and Somerset. On Richard's return from captivity, he attended the Great Council at Nottingham in March, and at the King's 2nd Coronation at Winchester, 17 April, he was one of the 4 earls carrying the canopy. In the summer of 1194 he was fighting in Normandy.

    He married Eleanor, widow of Gilbert CRESPIN, lord of TILLIÈRES (died on crusade, 1190), relict of William PAYNEL of Hambye (died 1184), and daughter of Robert DE VITRÉ, by Emma, daughter of Alan DE DINAN. He died (? in Normandy) 1196, and was buried at Bradenstoke. His widow married, 4thly, Gilbert DE MALESMAINS, who in 1198, and later, was holding in her right both her inheritance and her dower. In 1205 he appears to have adhered to France, while the Countess was permitted peaceful enjoyment of her lands in England. She died between 31 May 1232 and 12 August 1233, and was buried in the Abbey of Mondaye, near Bayeux, of which she was a benefactress. [Complete Peerage XI:378-9, (transcribed by Dave Utzinger)]
