  General Notes:

BERNARD [III] de Saint-Valéry, son of RENAUD [I] de Saint-Valéry & his wife --- (-[17 Sep] 1191). Henry Duke of Normandy confirmed a donation to Fontevraud abbey by "Raginaldus de Santo Walerico…sive filius eius Bernardus" to Fontevraud abbey, in the presence of "patris mei et mea fratrisque mei Willelmi" and with the consent of "Bernardus eius filius", by charter dated to [Sep 1151/Jan 1153] witnessed by "…Mathilde amita mea Fontis Ebraudi abbatissa". Pope Alexander III wrote to Henri Archbishop of Reims 29 Mar 1154 to enforce reparations from "vicedominus Pinciniaco, Bern. de S. Walerico et Gualterius Tyrellus" for the damage which they had caused to the abbey of Saint-Pierre de Selincourt. "…Bernardo de Sancto Walerico…" subscribed the charter dated to [1155/58] under which Henry II King of England confirmed the foundation of the monastery of Westwood, belonging to Fontevraud, by "Osbertus filius Hugonis et Eustachia de Say mater sua". The date of this charter coincides with the journey to Jerusalem of Bernard´s father, and suggests that the latter had delegated control over his lands to his son during his absence. The cartulary of Cercamp includes a charter of Bernard de Saint-Valéry which recalls the pilgrimage of "pater meus" to Jerusalem". Henry II King of England confirmed the donations of "molendina de Hortona et de Suttona et…de Chentona…Toicheham" to Berteaucourt abbey by "Bernardus de Sancto Valarico…et…Raginaldus filius ipsius" by charter dated [1156 or 1172/73], witnessed by "Bernardo de Sancto Valarico…". "Bernardus de sancto Walerico" donated the manor of "Wulgariscote" to Godstow nunnery, Oxfordshire, with the consent of "uxoris meĉ Avoridis et filiorum meorum Reginaldi, Bernardi et Thomĉ", confirmed by Henry II King of England, by undated charter. The Red Book of the Exchequer refers to "Bernardus de Sancto Valerico 1 l per Hugonem de Sancto Germano" in Oxfordshire in [1171/72]. "Bern de Sancto Walerico" subscribed the charter dated to [May 1175/Mar 1182] under which Henry II King of England confirmed possessions of the abbey of Saint-Valéry. "…Bernardo de Sancto Walerico…" subscribed the charter dated Feb 1187 under which Henry II King of England granted duty exemptions to the Cistercians of Dunes. "…Bernardo de Sancto Walerico…" subscribed the charter dated 11 Mar 1186 under which "M…regina Angl, soror Philippi regis Franc" renounced her rights over Gisors. [The necrology of the church of Eu records the death "17 Sep" of "Bernardus de Sancto Walerico" and his donation of "x marchas argenti" to the church. It is not known to which Bernard this entry refers.]

m firstly MATHILDE, daughter of ---(-[1151]). "Bernardus de sancto Walerico" donated property to Stodely Nunnery, Oxfordshire, for the souls of "Matildis uxoris meĉ…et pro meipso et uxore mea Alanora et pro liberis meis" by undated charter. Domesday Descendants states that she "died around 1151" but does not cite the corresponding primary source.

m secondly ANORA [Avoris], daughter of --- (-after 1194). "Bernardus de sancto Walerico" donated the manor of "Wulgariscote" to Godstow nunnery, Oxfordshire, with the consent of "uxoris meĉ Avoridis et filiorum meorum Reginaldi, Bernardi et Thomĉ", confirmed by Henry II King of England, by undated charter. Her marriage is confirmed by the undated charter under which her son "Thomas de sancto Walerico" confirmed the donation by "Bernardus bonĉ memoriĉ pater meus" made to Godstow nunnery in Oxfordshire with the consent of Henry II King of England, for the souls of "Edelĉ uxoris meĉ et Bernardi patris meĉ et Anorĉ matris meĉ".

The 1194/95 Pipe Roll records "Anora de Sancto Walerico…pro habenda rationabili dote sua de terra que fuit Bernardo de Sancto Walerico viri sui in Anglia et Norm" in London & Middlesex.
