    WILLIAM DE PERCY, son and heir [of Alan de Percy]. In February 1136 King Stephen confirmed to Whitby Abbey gifts made by him, his father, and his grandfather; and he attended the King's Court at Easter. In 1138 he was among the Yorkshire Barons who fought for Stephen at the battle of the Standard. He witnessed the confirmation-charters of Henry II to Nostell Priory ante July 1157, and to Whitby Abbey. In 1166 he made a return of 28 fees of old feoffment, and a fraction over 8 fees of new feoffment; and he held 4 fees of the Bishop of Durham in Yorks. He also held 1/2 knight's fee of the honor of Richmond. From the terms of a fine made in 1218 between his grandson Richard de Percy and his great-grandson William it appears that he had an inheritance in Normandy. He was the founder of Sallay Abbey, 6 January 1147/8, on a site given by him, and to which he gave several lands of the Percy fee in Craven; and he was probably the founder of Stainfield Priory, Lincs. He was a benefactor of Byland and Fountains Abbeys, and of Markby and Slxle Priories, Lincs; and he gave the church of Topcliffe to St. Peter's, York, for the work of repair and building.

    He married, 1stly, before 1136, Alice DE TONBRIDGE, who was living in 1148; and, 2ndly, circa 1166, Sibyl DE VALOGNES, widow of Robert DE Ros (of Helmsley). He was living in the year ending at Michaelmas 1170, and probably in that beginning at Michaelmas 1174, and he died s.p.m.s., before Easter 1175. He was buried at Fountains Abbey. His widow, who had dower in Leconfield and Nafferton, married, 3rdly, circa 1182, Ralph D'AUBIGNY. He died before Michaelmas 1192. She was living in 1212; and was buried at Nun Appleton PrIory.
