Warwick and Leicester answered for the scutage of Hugh; in 1164-65 Hugh paid 38 2. 6. in Lincolnshire; and in 1166 he answered for 10 1/8 knights' fees from Bourne, Lincs, his wife's inheritance. In 1168 he founded the Abbey of Longues and made numerous gifts thereto for the souls of his father and mother, of Baldwin FitzGilbert and his daughter Emma, Hugh's wife, and for the salvation of his children Baldwin and Geoffrey and the others. He also gave Wilsford, Lincs, to the Abbey of Le Bec.

    He married Emma, daughter and coheir of Baldwin FiTZGILBERT, or DE CLARE, by Adeline, daughter of Richard DE ROLLOS. She was dead in 1168. He died probably between Michaelmas 1175 and Michaelmas 1176. [Complete Peerage XII/2:295-6, (transcribed by Dave Utzinger)]

    Seigneur of Negreville in Normandy, France, and, in 1168, founder of Longues Abbey. Hugh was with King Stephen at Stamford in 1142, and was with the Earl of Chester at Devizes and Roger Wake in 1153 when he witnessed the charter for the Earl of Henry, Duke of Normandy.

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

    From Northamptonshire Families, p. 315:
    "In 1166 he made the return for the barony of Bourne, and at this time he was also holding single knights' fees under Humphrey de Bohun, the Earl of Gloucester and Earl Simon of Northampton and probably held of Robert of Stafford and of the Earl of Chester as well. In Normandy his lands lay at Negreville and St. Hilaire de Petitville in the Contentin peninsula...and at Longues in the Bessin, whilst to these must be added his inheritance in Guernsey. This rich baron founded in 1168 a Benedictine abbey at Longues near Bayeux, which he endowed from his Norman lands, one Roger Wac being witness to his foundation charter."
