Sibylla DE LACY
- Married (1): Before 1125
- Married (2): After 1138
The date of her first marriage is estimated from the dating of her older daughter’s first marriage to “before [Dec 1137/May 1138]”. “Sibilla de Lacy” notified her bailiffs and foresters that she had donated “land of Leghe near the church of St Michael” to “my uncle Walter abbot of Gloucester”, for the souls of “myself and my husband Payne Fitz-john”, by charter dated to [1130/39]. "Rogo filio Milonis Gloec et Cecilie uxori sue filie Pag fil Johis" the lands of her father, including land which "Pag dedit Sibille uxoris sue in dote", by charter dated to [Dec 1137/May 1138]. Roger Bishop of Salisbury instructed "Sibille q fuit uxor Pag fil Johis" to restore property which her husband had granted to "Rogo fil Milon Gloec cum Cecilia filia tua p-mogenita" by charter dated 1138.
Her second marriage is confirmed by two charters of St. Guthlac’s priory, Hereford: in the first, “Sybil de Laceo” donated land at “Parva Frome” in Herefordshire, while in the second Sibylla “domina de Lodel” donated further land in the same place “ex proprio jure hereditare mee” with the consent of “domini mei Gozonis de Dinan”. It is assumed that Sibylla survived for at least two years after her second marriage as her second husband is recorded as having had two children. No source has been identified which confirms that Sibylla was their mother, although the naming of the younger child after her is indicative. 1
Sibylla marrie Payn FITZ JOHN of Ewyas, son of John FITZ RICHARD, before 1125. (Payn FITZ JOHN was born before 1100 and died on 10 Jul 1137.)
Sibylla also married Joscelin DE DINAN of Lambourn, Knt., son of Geoffroy I DE DINAN and Radegonde dite Oriel, after 1138. (Joscelin DE DINAN was born in Dinan, Ille-et-Vilaine, Bretagne, France and died in 1167 in Lambourn, Hungerford, Berkshire, England.)
