    EARLDOM of CORNWALL (I) 1141 to 1175

    Reynold de Dunstanville, one of the 14 illegitimate children of Henry I, was the son of Sybil, daughter of Sir Robert Corbet, of Alcester, co. Warwick, and having m. ?Mabel, daughter and (in her issue) heir of William Fitz Richard, a man of huge estates in Cornwall, was created about Apr 1141, Earl of Cornwall, probably by the Empress Maud, but the title was fully recognised subsequently by King Stephen. He was a witness to the compromise between Stephen and Henry, 1153. Sheriff of Devon, 1173-75. He was in command, ex parte Regis, Oct 1173, against the rebellious Barons. He d. spm legit, at Chertsey, Surrey, 1 July 1175, and was buried in the Abbey of Reading, when the Earldom reverted to the Crown. [Complete Peerage, III:429 as corrected by XIV:207]

    NOTE: I assume that the surname Dunstanville comes from the fact that Reynold was born in Denestanville near the Pays de Caux region of Seine-Inferieure, Normandy (now Seine-Maritime, Haute (Upper) Normandy). The Corbet family was from somewhere in the Pays de Caux region, perhaps Denestanville? Lewis Loyd has determined that the Dunstanville name probably came from Denestanville.
