Dear Newsgroup ~

Various posts have been made in the past regarding the parentage of Clarice de Auberville (living 1250), second wife of Sir Fulk Fitz Warin (II) (living 1255), of Whittington, Shropshire. This couple is in the ancestry of many newsgroup posters, by way of their numerous Tregoz, Grandison, and la Warre descendants. I went through my copy of Paget's Baronage of England tonight and found his account of the Auberville family. Paget clearly identifies Clarice de Auberville as the daughter and heiress of Robert de Auberville (died c. 1230), of Iden and Isham, Sussex, by his wife, Clarice. Robert de Auberville is in turn identified as a younger brother of Hugh de Auberville, grandfather of Joan de Auberville, wife of Henry de Sandwich, Knt. (living 1248), and Nicholas de Criol, Knt. (died 1272), about whom I posted earlier this week.

Here is what Paget says about Robert de Auberville:

"Robert [de Auberville], with Hugh his brother, he witnessed a charter of John de Eu to the Monks of Robertsbridge. (Mon. Ang. II.921a n 10). Lord of Iden and Isham, Sussex, jure uxoris, of which he had livery, 21st July 1205 (Cl. 7 Joh. m 20). Fought in Ireland, 1210 (Rot. de Prestito 12 John). He attended the king at the siege of Bytham Castle, 1221 (Cl. 5 Hen. 3. m 15d). Constable of Hastings Castle, 8th Aug. 1225 (Cl. 9 Hen. 3. m 9). Warden of the Sea ports from Portsmouth to Sandwich, 17th March 1228 (Pat. 12 Hen. 3. m 5). He died before 18th March 1230, when John de Gatesden was appointed Constable of Hastings in his place (Pat. 14 Hen. 3. m 5). He married Clarice. They had issue, Clarice d'Auberville, daughter and heir, of Iden and Isham. She married Fulk Fitz Warine (III) as his 2nd wife. They were both living 1250 (Rot. Fin. 34 Hen. 3. m 2). They had issue, Mabel Fitz Warin, daughter and heiress to her mother. She married as his 1st wife, John Lord Tregoz, of Ewyas, etc." [Reference: Gerald Paget, Baronage of England (1957), 11: 1-2].

Besides the above, I've located two other records pertaining to Robert de Auberville and his wife, Clarice, in Report on the MSS of Lord de L'isle & Dudley 1 (Hist. MSS Comm. 77) (1925), as copied below:

pg. 71 1219, June 23. - Fine between William, abbot of Robertsbridge, and Robert de Aubervill and Clarice his wife [Sussex Fines ap. Sussex Record Soc. II., pg. 40].

pg. 97 [c. 1240]. - Charter of Herbert de Burghersse granting the land in Egelinton [Eglinton in Ewhurst, Sussex], which he held of the lady Clarice, who was the wife of Robert de Auberville, to Gervase, son of Andrew, who paid for the charter 22 marks. Witnesses: Robert de Glotingeham, Alan of Robertsbridge, Walter de Burgersse, William de Sokenersse and 8 others. Seal: oval, 1 inch; a gem, stork in its nest; SIGILL. HERBERTI CL'ICI.

For evidence that Mabel Fitz Warin was heiress of her mother, Clarice de Auberville, I find that Mabel and her husband, Sir John Tregoz, were granted free warren of Iden and I[s]ham, Sussex 11 June 1271 [Reference: Moor, Knights of Edward I 5 (H.S.P. 84) (1932) (1932): 43]. As shown above, Paget indicates that these properties belonged to Clarice de Auberville's father, Robert de Auberville (died c. 1230), who held them in right of his wife, Clarice.

Robert married Clarice.193
