• Background Information. 141
Reynold de Dunstanville
, one of the 14 illegitimate children of Henry I, was the son of Sybil, daughter of Sir Robert Corbet, of Alcester, Warwick. He married Mabel, daughter and (in her issue) heir of William Fitz Richard, a man of huge estates in Cornwall, and Reynold was created about Apr 1141, Earl of Cornwall, probably by the Empress Maud,. This title was fully recognized subsequently by King Stephen. He was a witness to the compromise between Stephen and Henry, 1153. He was the sheriff of Devon, 1173-75. He was in command, ex parte Regis, Oct 1173, against the rebellious Barons. He died without legitimate male heirs, at Chertsey, Surrey, 1 July 1175, and was buried in the Abbey of Reading, when the Earldom reverted to the Crown.
