  Research Notes:

William of Tyre refers to Rotrou's marriage with the sister of Earl Patrick after the marriage of his daughter Philippa. Philippa’s marriage is dated to [1120]. The chronology of Hawise’s children suggests their births after [1135/40] at the earliest. If that is correct, Hawise would presumably have been an infant if she had married soon after [1120]. It appears more likely that the marriage took place in the early 1130s, which would place Hawise’s birth in [1120], which would suggest that she was one of her parents’ older children. The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines refers to the first wife of "comitem de Brana Robertum domnum" as "matrem…comitis Rotroldi de Pertico, natam de Salesberia". Robert of Torigny records that "uxorem…suam [comitis Perticensis Rotrodi]" was later given by "Ludovicus rex Francorum" [to] "Roberto fratri suo".

The necrology of Chartres cathedral records the death "Id Jan" of "Amicia comitissa Perticensis mater Rotrodi militis", although if this entry correctly refers to Hawise it is surprising that there is no reference which would indicate her second marriage. 1

  Marriage Information:

Hawise married Cte Routrou II DU PERCHE, son of Cte Geoffroy II DU PERCHE et Mortagne and Beatrix (Béatrice) DE MONTDIDIER, before 1127. (Routrou II DU PERCHE was born after 1070 and died between 20 Jan 1144 and 23 Apr 1144.)

  Marriage Information:

Hawise also married Robert "le Grand" DE FRANCE, Seigneur de Dreux, son of Louis VI "le Gros" CAPET, King of France, and Adélaide DU MAURIENNE, about 1144. (Robert "le Grand" DE FRANCE was born in 1124-1126 in Reims, Champagne-Ardenne, France, died on 12 Oct 1188 in Braine, Aisne, Picardy, France and was buried in église abbatiale de Saint-Ived, Braine, Aisne, Picardy, France.)
