No primary source has been identified which confirms that Matilda was the daughter of Theobald de Valoignes. However, the following charter indicates close connections between the Walter, Valoignes and Glanville families which appear best explained if Matilda was the sister of Bertha, wife of Ranulf de Glanville. “Herveus Walterus” donated “feodum meum in Wyngefeild...in Sikebroc...in Istede...” to Butley priory, Suffolk, for the souls of “meæ et Matildis sponsæ meæ et filiorum nostrorum...Ranulfi de Glanvil et Bertæ sponsæ et filiorum suorum”, by undated charter, witnessed by “Willielmo de Albervilla, Willielmo de Valoniis, Roberto de Valoniis...Willelmo de Glanvilla clerico et filiis meis Huberto, Waltero et Rogero et Hamone”. 1
Matilda married Hervé WALTER, son of Herveus. (Hervé WALTER died between 1171 and 1192.)
