Abreda de Lacy was married to Robert de Lissours and they had a daughter also named Albreda. Albreda de Lissours married, 1st to Richard Fitz Eustace and 2nd to William Fitz Godric. When Robert de Lacy, last male of his line, died in 1193, Albreda de Lacy handed over the family estates to her grandson, Roger Fitz Eustace who assumed the name de Lacy.
Roger de Lacy appears to have been a man of power and influence as well as a benefactor to the Church. Pontefract remained in the hands of his successors until the beginning of the fourteenth century, when the male line came to an end. The estates of the Lacy family pass to Alice, daughter of Henry de Lacy and wife of Thomas, Earl of Lancaster.
