Adeliza of Chester b: 1088
Richard FitzGilbert - Lord of Clare b:
1084-1090 & Adeliza of Chester b: 1088-1094 in
Hertford - She was taken prisoner by the Welsh, who killed her husband,
Richard, in battle in 1136. She was rescued by Miles of Glouchester.
Ranulf Le Meschin - Earl of Chester &
Lord Ranulf came to England with Wiliam "the Conquerer"
and received the city of Carlisle, becoming lord of that district. His
land holdings were greatly increased as a result of his marriage to the
heiress LUCY. He supported KING HENRY I in 1106 and led the van in the
Batle of Tinchebrai. He was also loyal to HENRY in the struggle of 1119.
Upon the death of his mother's nephew, Richard of Avaranches (RIN 3104)
in 1119 in the tragedy of the White Ship, Randulf succeded to the Earldom
of Chester. His career as Earl of Chester appears to have been uneventful,
save that in 1123 he was sent over with Robert - EARL OF GLOUCESTER to
secure the saftey of Normandy, then threatened by FULK V, COUNT OF ANJOU.
