    From: Todd A. Farmerie (taf2 AT po.cwru.edu)
    Subject: Robert de Torigny and the family of Gunnor, Duchess of Normandy
    Newsgroups: soc.genealogy.medieval
    Date: 1996/12/03

    The only known brother of Gunnor was Arfast/Herfast, of whom we gain what little insight we have from a trial of heretics conducted by Robert II. Arfast testified that he had pretended to join the sect, all the better to denounce them when the time arose. He later donated lands to the monastery of St. Pere, to which he retired. He had at least two sons: Osbern, who was steward to the later Dukes, and was murdered by William de Montgomery while defending the young Duke William; and Ranulf, known from charters. Osbern maried a niece of Richard I (the daughter of his half-brother) and by her was the father of the Conquest baron William Fitz Osbern.

    Note: William de Montgomery was great grandson of Senfria "not' de Crepon.
