He [Roald Lestrange] married Maud, daughter of Ralph, son of HERLEWIN, or DE HUNSTANTON, by Helewise, daughter of Hugh DE PLAIZ, of Bernham, Suffolk. He died before, and probably some time before, 1158. 2
Her marriage is confirmed by the charter dated to [1157/60] in which her son "Johannes Extraneus" donated land to Castle Acre priory, for the souls of "patris mei Rollandi et Matildĉ matris meĉ et Hamonis fratris mei". Her parentage is also suggested by the charter dated to [before 1174] in which her son "Johannes cognomento Le Strange" donated "villa de Egeffel", held by "Radulfus de Hunestaneston
et filius eius Simon post eum, deinde frater ipsius Reginaldus le Brun" of whom "ego
legitimus heres iure hereditario successi". 3
Matilda married Rhiwallon (Roland) LE STRANGE. (Rhiwallon (Roland) LE STRANGE died before 1158 in Hunstanton, Norfolk, England.)
