  • ID: I24418
  • Name: Maud d' AUBIGNY 1 2
  • Sex: F
  • Birth: ABT 1178 in Arundel, Sussex, England
  • Death: 6 FEB 1215/16 in Chapter House, Lewes Priory, Sussex, England 1
  • Note:
    He [William de Warenne] married, 1stly, Maud (m). [Complete Peerage XII/1:500-03, (transcribed by Dave Utzinger)]

    (m) She is alleged to have been daughter of an Earl of Arundel, to have d. 6 Feb 1215/6 and to have been buried in the chapter-house of Lewes Priory. The date 6 Feb. (no year) as the date of death of a Maud, Countess de Warenne, is confirmed by an Obit in the Beauchief Abbey Register.

    Note: Based on the above, I have placed her as daughter of William d'Aubigny, Earl of Arundel during the right time frame for Maud. This agreees with the analysis by John Ravilious on SGM, given below:

    Dear Douglas, et al.,

    The chronology I show for the period concerning the likely Earl of Arundel to father Maud, wife of William de Warenne appears as follows:

    1. William D'Aubigny, Earl of Arundel, was born 1138 or later (the son of William D'Aubigny and Adeliza of Louvain, dowager of Henry I of England). He was styled Earl of Arundel from 1176/7 acc. to CP.

    2. William married Maud de Saint Hilary, 1173 or soon thereafter. Maud (daughter of James de Saint Hilary, of Dalling, Norfolk & c. by his wife Aveline) was the widow of Roger de Clare, Earl of Hertford (d. 1173) and the mother of the young 4th Earl of Hertford, Richard de Clare, and his siblings.

    3. William D'Aubigny and Maud de Saint Hilary are (previously) known to have had a son William, who succeeded his father as Earl of Arundel, and was a supporter of King John in 1215 together with William de Warenne (previously husband of Maud whom you have identified). They also had a daughter Agnes, identified by Todd in , SGM, 21 May 2002.

    Given the foregoing, it would appear that a daughter Maud could likely have been born to William D'Aubigny and Maud de Saint Hilary as early as 1174, but possibly well into the 1180's. William de Warenne was born in 1165 or later.

    Maud D'Aubigny, eldest daughter of William D'Aubigny (d. ca. 1221) and Mabel of Chester, and eldest granddaughter of William D'Aubigny and Maud de Saint Hilary, was coheiress (in her issue) to her brother Hugh, Earl of Arundel (d. 1243). Her son Robert de Tateshal succeeded to Buckenham, Norfolk as part of the Arundel inheritance (CP Vol. I - Arundel, p. 239n).

    It is then most likely that Maud D'Aubigny, wife of this William de Warenne, was the daughter of the above William D'Aubigny and Maud de Saint Hilary.

    Best regards - and great find.
