Henry I gave the honour of Montgomery to Baldwin de Boulers on his marriage to Sibyl de Falaise. Sibyl was some kind of relation, probably cousin, of Henry I, but not niece as is interpreted from the latin, (this was mentioned last year and is discussed by Doug Richardson in the archives).

The IPM of Vitalis Engayne in 1248 (CIPM 1: 166) says for Suffolk "Badmundefeld, a moiety of the manor (extent given) held of the honour on Mungumeri without service, because King Henry, the king's great-great grandfather, gave the manor in free marriage to Baldwin de Bulers, ancestor of the said Vitalis, with Sibyl de Falaise his niece."

The division is reiterated in the IPM of William de Cantilupo in 1253 (CIPM 1 : 318) Suffolk. "Badmundefield manor (extent given). King Henry I gave the manor to Baldwin de Boulers in free marriage with Sibyl de Faleisse, wherefore no service has ever been done to the king for the same. "

The gift in free marriage is specifically mentioned because no services were due to the king as a condition of tenure..
Presumably under customary inheritance, Vitalis Engayne and Roger Gernet, being heirs of the full blood as descendants of Sibyl, took precedence over issue of Baldwin de Bouler's second marriage. Evidently Roger Gernet sold his moiety to William de Cantilupe who became his representative. It is quite possible that William de Cantilupe had an interest, either by marriage or descent, as was often the case when an inheritance was sold to another party. The pedigrees given in the plea rolls would only pertain to the principals - other siblings would not enter into it.



Baldwin married Sibyl de Falaise, daughter of Guillaume de Falaise and Geva de Burci.141
