"By his wife Cecilia, and not Matilda, as Dugdale falsely conjectured, William d'Aubigné the first left issue William d'Aubigné the second, and Ralph, and Eudo, and Geoffrey, all witnesses to a charter with their father and mother made by Ralph de Raines and walter and Willim his brothers, of four bovates of land in Stathorn in Leicestershire, to the priory of Bevoir, which they held of that honour. In 1168, we have a charter of William d'Aubigné the second, setting forth the knights enfeoffed of his barony, which his father had held and he after him, of whom the first named is Ralph d'Aubigné his brother, then tenant of fifteen knight's fiefs, and again this charter is proof that their mother had named Cecilia.

"May all as well present as to come know that I Wiliam d'Aubigné, by the assent of William my son and heir, and of Matilda my wife, and Cecilia, my mother, and likewise of Ralph d'Aubigné, my brother, and my vassals, have granted and given to God and the church of St. Mary of Belvoir and to . . .
