  • Note:
    Robert Giffard (younger brother of Gerard Gifford, of Fonthill); married ?, sister and sole heir of Gilbert de Warenne, thus acquiring large estates in Devon centered on Weare (which in consequence became known as Weare Giffard). [Burke's Peerage]

    Paul Davis, in his post to SGM, seems to confirm that this Robert (the one identified by Burke's Peerage] is the same as the Robert identified as an ancestor of Mathew Gifford b. 1269 by many sources on World Connect. The two Roberts come to be born about the same time. Burke's seems to indicate that their Robert is in someway descended (directly?) from Osbern de Bolebec, which this Robert is (indirectly through several daughters), and (according to Paul Davis) took the name of his maternal grandmother.
