  Research Notes:

Ingulph's Chronicle of the Abbey of Croyland names "Simon, Waldev and Matilda" as the children of Simon Earl of Huntingdon and his wife Matilda, commenting that they "are still young and in their infancy."

After his father died, he was passed over as earl in favour of his stepfather. However, he was restored as Earl of Huntingdon and Northampton [before 1141] by Stephen King of England for whom he fought at Lincoln in Feb 1141. A manuscript narrating the foundation of St Andrew’s Priory, Northampton records that “Simon de Seynlyz junior” founded “abbatiam beatæ Mariæ de Pratis juxta Northampton”. A charter of King Edward III confirmed the donations to the Abbey of De la Pre, founded by “Simon comes de Norhamtona”, for the soul of “Gervasii Paynel fratris mei”, by undated charter.

Robert of Torigny records the death in 1153 of "Symone comite Huntedoniæ". The Annals of Tewkesbury record that “comes de Norhamptone” died in 1153. 2

  Marriage Information:

Simon married Isabelle DE BEAUMONT-MEULAN, daughter of Robert I DE BEAUMONT-LE-ROGER, Earl of Leicester, and Amicie DE MONTFORT-GAËL, Countess of Leicester, about 1137. (Isabel DE BEAMONT-MEULAN was born in Leicestershire, England and died after May 1188.)
