Robert DE GRANDMESNIL

  • Born: Bef 1060
  • Died: 1 Jun 1136

   Research Notes:

Orderic Vitalis names "Rodbertum, Guillelmum, Hugonem, Ivonem, Albericum" as the sons of "Hugo de Grentemaisnilio" and his wife "Adelidem filiam Ivonis comitis de Bellomonte". Considering that Robert's younger brother Guillaume was considered of marriageable age before [1081], it is unlikely that Robert was born later than [1060], although this would mean that he was probably in his fifties at the time of his first marriage (considering the estimated birth date range of his first wife) which seems surprising. "…Rotberti de Grentemaisnillo, Ivonis de Grentemaisnillo…" witnessed the charter dated Sep 1093 under which William II King of England donated property to Lincoln cathedral. "…Robert de Grentone-Maisnil…" witnessed the undated charter under which Robert III Duke of Normandy donated property to Saint-Etienne de Caen. "Robert de Grantemsnil et Robert de sancto Serenico" confirmed donations of property to the abbey of Saint-Evroul made by "their progenitors Hugh and Robert de Grentemesnil" by charter dated to [1127/28]. Orderic Vitalis records that Robert de Grantmesnil died "Kal Jun" 38 years after his father and was buried at Ouche "cum duabus uxoribus suis: Agnete et Emma".
