bullet  Information about this person:

• Background Information. 947
In the Wilshire Domesday, one Humphrey de Lisle (or Humfridus de Insula) is recorded as holding of the King a Fief of not less than twenty-seven Manors. Humphrey de L'Isle was in attendance at Hastings in Jan 1091, of King William II who was about to embark for Normandy. [Monasticon, viii, 1299; ii.] This Humphrey appears to have left a daughter and sole heiress called Adelina de Insula. The husband of Adelina de Insula was Reginald de Dunstanville, whose marriage to so wealthy an heiress bespeaks some Court influence.
