  Research Notes:

The Book of Lacock records that “Walterus de Saresburia” married “Sibillam de Cadurcia”. The date of her marriage can be estimated very approximately from the likely birth date of her son William. Bracton lists a claim by "[Willelmus Comes] Sarr et Ela [uxor eius]" against "Paganum de Chawtesteford in comitatu Gloucestrie" dated 1218, recording that "Patricius de Chawrtes antecessor eiusdem Pagani" gave a manor (unnamed) "[in maritagium] --- Sibilla sua" from whom it descended to "Patricio filio suo et de ipse Patricio --- [patri ipsius] Ele et de ipso Willelmo predicte Ele". 1


He [Walter of Salisbury] married Sibyl, daughter of Patrick DE CHAOURCES [Chaworth], by Maud, daughter of Ernulf DE HESDIN; which Sibyl had as her marriage-portion 15 fees of the old feoffment and one newly made. She died before her husband and was buried near the quire in Bradenstoke. He took the habit of a canon there, died in 1147, and was buried in the same grave as his wife. 2
