sons of HUGH, the Domesday tenant and suggests that though unproven,
Robert is, by far, the most likely of the 5 brothers to have been the
grandfather of PETRONILLA DE GRANDMESNIL (RIN 860) Petronilla was
the heiress of the Norman Grandmesnil estates and Robert was the son
who inherited these estates from his father. (Todd Farmerie, however,
tempers this fact with the observation that Robert ended up being
deprived of his lands, which could then have been regranted to one of his
line or any of the others' familiies.) It now appears that Hugh's brother,
William is the most likely candidate for Petronilla's grandfather.
Robert married 1) AGNES of BAYEUX, 2) Emma d'Estouteville, 3) Lucy
FitzCana. The identity of any children that each wife may have borne is
not known. Oderic says that Robert had a dau, Agnes, who m. Robert de
Moulins, but otherwise, he gives no information as to his children.
