• Background Information. 160
Sir William de Tracy was the father of Rohese who married Henry de Chamernon of Ilfracombe, Devonshire. Sir William was the son of William de Tracy, lord of Bradninch, Devon. Rohese was the heir to Clistwick, Devon (Clyst St. George or Clist Champernowne), a manor previously the martagium of Sir William de Tracy's wife. The lord of Bradnich held Clyst St. George of the Pomeroy family, so Sir. William Tracy's wife was likely the daughter of Henry de Pomeroy, lord of Berry Pomeroy, Devon, by Rohese. Rohese was the sister of Reginald Fitz Roy, Earl of Cornwall, bastard son of King Henry I. Earl Reginald had several half-siblings by his mother, Sibyl Corbet's marriage to Herbert Fitz Herbert. Since Sir William Tracy is the grandson of Herny I, it isn't likely for Rohese, his wife, to also be the granddaughter of Henry I.

1. JORDAN de CHAMBERNUN. Seigneur de Cambernon and Maisoncelles in Normandy, France. In 1146 Jordan de Campo Ernulfi was first witness of a confirming charter of Henry de Tracy, then Baron of Barnstaple to the Priory of St. Mary Magdalene, Barnstaple, Devonshire. He appears to have died by 1166, when his sons Jordan and Henry were in possession of his lands.

JORDAN de CHAMBERNUN married, as her first husband, Mabel, daughter of Robert, son of Robert, Earl of Gloucester, and Hawise, daughter of Baldwin de Redvers, 1st Earl of Devon. Mabel married 2ndly, William de Soliers. As Mabel de Soliers, she confirmed in c1193-1204 a gift charter of the manors of Fleet and Ibberton, Dorsetshire from her mother, Hawise, to her son, Richard de Chambernun. (Charters of the Redvers Family, 11, 146; DCNQ, 18: 3-7, 81-84, 108-112, 319-320) Children:

2. Jordan de Chambernun, m. Emma de Soligny.
3. Richard de Chambernun.
4. Henry de Chambernun, m. Rose de Tracy.


4. HENRY de CHAMBERNUN. Henry is named as brother of Jordan de Chambernun in the Cartulary of Montebourg. In 1166 he was in possession of the family estates under the Honours of Barnstaple and Okehampton. He was lord of 1 fee under the Honour of Gloucester in 1201-1212 (Red Book of the Exchequer, p. 154) and in 1211-1212 (Red Book, p. 607). Henry appears to have died in 1211 or 1212, for Rose de Campo Ernulfi is also shown as holding 1 fee, probably the same, under Gloucester in 1210-1212 (Red Book, p. 559).

HENRY de CHAMBERNUN was married to Rose (or Rohese), living 1237, apparently daughter and heiress of Sir William de Tracy. Rose married 2ndly Robert de Sechevill (or Sacchville), died c1218, of Braunton, Cowley, Dunsford & Rewe, Devonshire. Rose was heiress to Clistwick, Devonshire (later Clist St. George or Clist Champernowne), this manor being previously the maritagium of Sir William de Tracy's wife. In 1237 Rose was holding as dower from her late husband the manor of Rewe (Book of Fees, p. 612).
