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

    BALDWIN WAKE, son and heir, made fine in 1201, together with his grandfather William du Hommet, for possession of his lands in England and Normandy, promising not to marry without the King's consent. In August 1204 he was allowed to have his English lands if he gave 4 hostages to Crown representatives; but in 1207 he came into conflict with the King, being forced to choose between England and Normandy. His lands were seized in March 1206/7 and he was ordered to leave the realm, but he seems to have been imprisoned in June following. It is not known when he was restored to royal favour but at Michaelmas 1210 he appears among the witnesses of a charter.

    He married Isabel, widow of Foubert DE DOUVRES (a), daughter of William BRIWERRE, by his wife Beatrice. He died before 20 July 1213. Isabel was living, 1224, but died before 10 June 1233. [Complete Peerage XII/2:297-8, (transcribed by Dave Utzinger)]

    (a) G. A. Moriarty, "The First House of De Douvres or De Chilham," in The New England Hist. and Geneal. Reg., vol cv, pp. 39-40. It was formerly believed that the family to which Foubert belonged took its name from Dover, but Round suggested that the name was derived from Douvres in the Bessin and the evidence which he adduced seems to be convincing.
