  General Notes:

ORM (-after 1094). "…Orm filius Ketell…" witnessed the charter dated 1094 under which "Rogerus comes Pictavencis" donated land "iuxta Lanecastrum…" to the church of St Martin (of the church of St Mary, Lancaster), for the souls of "Rogeri Scroberić patris sui, matrisque suć Mabilić cometissć". The chronology does not appear ideal for the witness of this charter to have been the son of Ketel son of Eldred, assuming that Ketel's mother was the daughter of Ivo Taillebois.] same person as…? ORM . This co-identity is assumed by Farrer. The connection with the church of Workington, held by Ketel supposed father of Orm and by Gospatrick his son, suggests that the hypothesis may be correct. The chronology, however, is not ideal, given Orm's mention in 1094 and his supposed son's death after 1174.

m firstly GUNHILDA, daughter of GOSPATRICK Earl of Northumberland & his wife ---. The Cronicon Cumbrić records that "Waldevus filius comitis Cospatricii" enfeoffed "Ormo Ketelli" with property and "Gurwelda sorore sua".

m secondly EBREA, daughter of ---. "Gospatricius filius Orm" donated "villam de Salterge…" to St Bees by undated charter (dated to before 1158), witnessed by "…Roberto filio Orm, Micaele fratre eius…Elgiva uxore ipsius Gospatricii, Ebrea matre eius…Thoma filio Gospatricii, Adam, Roberto fratribus eius".

Orm & his second wife, Ebrea, had four children: Gospatrick, Robert, Michael and Roger. 1

Orm married Gunhilda.1

Orm next married Ebrea de Trivers, daughter of Robert de Trivers and Unknown.1
