  General Notes:

GAUTHIER[II] Tirell , son of GAUDRY [I] [de Corbeil] & his wife Aremburge --- (-[Jerusalem] before [1140]). An undated charter, dated to 1092 as explained above, records the donation of "ecclesiam...sancti Dyonisii de Bunduslo" to Longpont by "Fredericus, Gaudrici filius et Isembardus cognomento Paganus, filius Anselli de Stampis", with the consent of "parentis isti: Aremburgis mater eiusdem Frederici et fratres eiusdem Frederici…Gaufredus et Bego…et Gautherius Tyrellus et Mathildis soror eorum". A charter dated [5 Apr/24 Sep] 1097 records that "Dnus Hugo" went to "Corbolium castrum" where "alios parentes filios Herenburgis neptis sue...unus Fredericus...alius Gaufredus, tertius Walterius et quartus Bego...cum matre eorum Herenburge et sororibus suis filiabus eiusdem Herenburgis" confirmed his donation to Saint-Martin-des-Champs, witnessed by "Odo comes Corboili, Fredericus filius Balduini Belvacensis, Godolricus vicecomes...". Châtelain de Poix, châtelain de Pontoise: Orderic Vitalis records that "Gualterio Tirello…de Francia miles…Picis et Pontisariæ oppidanus" accidentally shot William II King of England with an arrow [in Aug 1100] after which he fled to France, and died many years later in Jerusalem. The Chronique de Normandie, based on le Roman de Rou, suggests that "un chevalier leur cousin…Gaultier Tirel" was responsible for the death of William II King of England in 1100. Suger's Vita Ludovici records that "Galterio Tirello" was accused of killing King William but adds that he later swore that he was never in that part of the forest with the king. A charter dated 23 Oct 1118 records "Gualterii Tirelli" donated property to the priory which he founded in his castle of Poix, with the consent of "uxore sua Adelicia et Hugone filio eius". A charter dated to [1140] records that "Galterius Tyrellus" donated property to Notre-Dame de Longpont on leaving for Jerusalem, that "Gaufredus de Edera, frater ipsius Galterii" withheld it, but that it was restored on his return by "Ada uxor sua cognomento Machaina et filius eorum Galterius Tyrellus".

m ADELISA de Clare , daughter of RICHARD FitzGilbert Lord of Clare & his wife Rohese Giffard of Buckingham (-[1125/35] or after, bur Conflans Sainte-Honorine). She is called "Adelidem filiam Ricardi de…prosapia Gifardorum" by Orderic Vitalis, who also records her marriage. Her identification as the daughter of Richard de Clare was first made by Round. A charter dated 23 Oct 1118 records "Gualterii Tirelli" donated property to the priory which he founded in his castle of Poix, with the consent of "uxore sua Adelicia et Hugone filio eius". "Adelissa [mater Gauterii filii Gauterii Tirelli]" donated property to the abbey of Saint-Martin de Pontoise by charter dated [1125/35] which states that the donation was made after the death of her son and the latter was buried at the abbey. The same charter also records a later donation by "Gauterius Tirellus pater memorati Gauterii iuvenis" witnessed by "Ada uxore Hugonis Tirelli, Gauterius Tirelli et Hugonis filii eius". The 1130 Pipe Roll records "Adeliz uxor Walti Tirelli" in Essex in relation to "eisde plac de La Wingeha". Her place of burial is confirmed by the charter dated 9 Jun 1147 under which [her son and grandson] "Hugo Tirellus et Gualterius filius eius" donated "decimam...apud Spieias" to Conflans Sainte Honorine, for the soul of "matrie sue que apud Conflentum sanctimonialis fuit et ibi quiescit".

Gauthier [II] & his wife had two children. 1

Gauthier married Adelisa FitzRichard de Clare, daughter of Richard de Brionne Lord of Clare and Tonbridge and Rohese Giffard.
