Aubrey's third wife, whom he married in 1162 or 1163 was Agnes, daughter of Henry de Essex, Lord of Rayleigh and Haughley, by his wife Cicely. This child, who was born in 1151 or 1152, the Earl tried to repudiate within a year. She appealed from the Bishop of London's court to Rome, and in 1171 or 1172 Alexander III directed the Bishop to order him to take his wife back. She was living with him in 1191, and survived her husband. Aubrey died 26 December 1194, and was buried at Colne. Agnes was buried by his side.
