An undated manuscript relating to Cokersand Abbey, Lancashire records that "Ivo Tailbot genuit Elthredum" [Dugdale Monasticon VI.2, Cokersand Abbey, Lancashire VI, p. 909]. This statement is presumably incorrect as other sources indicate that Ivo Taillebois had no sons. Eldred may have married, ---, daughter of Ivo Taillebois & his second wife Lucía. Domesday Descendants suggests that the Cokersand Abbey manuscript is incorrect and that it was the wife of Eldred who was the daughter of Ivo Taillebois, adding that their grandson William de Lancaster held the barony of Kendal which was previously held by Ivo Taillebois [Domesday Descendants, p. 539].
