No published source that I have gives parents for Ives/Ivo. World Connect/rootsweb was the source of Gatinais/Anjou as parents, and I have seen references in soc.genealogy.medieval as "of Anjou" which fits with his mother. The book "Origins of Some Anglo-Norman Families" does give a reliable account of his origins in Cristot, Calvados,Normandy, although that is not where he was necessarily born, and he may have held other lands than just Cristot.
Ives married Lady Judith DE LENS of Boulogne, daughter of Lambert DE BOULOGNE Comte de Lens and Adélahide (Adèle) DE NORMANDIE Countess of Champagne, after 1076. (Lady Judith DE LENS of Boulogne was born in 1054 in Lens, Artois/Pas-de-Calais, France and died after 1086 in Walthamstow, West Ham, Essex, England.)
Ives also married Lucia of Mercia, daughter of Thorold (Turold) of Bucknall, Sheriff of Lincolnshire and Alvarissa MALET, after 1086. (Lucia of Mercia was born about 1070 in Crowland & Spalding, Lincolnshire, England and died in 1141.)
