Adelisa DE VERE

Robert DE ESSEX, Lord of Rayleigh

  • Married:
  • Died: Between 1132 and 1140

  Research Notes:

Domesday Descendants demonstrates convincingly that the husband of Adelisa de Vere is unlikely to have been Robert FitzSwein, who was survived by his widow Gunnor. It suggests that he was the older son of Robert FitzSwein who must have died soon after succeeding his father. 1

  Marriage Information:

Robert married Adelisa DE VERE, daughter of Aubrey II DE VERE, Sheriff of London, and Adelisa DE CLARE. (Adelisa DE VERE was born about 1105 and died after 1185 in Abbey Walden, Saffron Walden, Norfolk, England.)
