The Fundationis et Fundatorum Historia of Ford Abbey names "Robertum…de Courtnay" as son of "Reginaldo de Courtenay"and "vicecomitissa domina Hawisia uxore sua" [described earlier in the same paragraph as his father´s second wife], although the source then conflates him with his nephew Robert de Courtenay, ancestor of the earls of Devon (see above), by stating that "dictus Robertus de Courtnay dictorum Reginaldi et Hawisić filius et hćres legitimus" obtained "totum honorem de Okehampton jure hćreditario...castellum Exonić...totius comitatus Devonić". The 1174/75 Pipe Roll records "Robto de Curtenai" in the fee of "Regin fil Ursi" (father of his first wife, which helps to date their marriage) in Northamptonshire.

"Robertus de Curtenei" donated revenue from "molendino…de Kokermuth" to St Bees, with the advice of "uxoris mee Aaliz de Rumeleie", to St Bees by undated charter, witnessed by "…Willelmo de Curtenei…". Bracton records a claim, dated 1231, by "Johannes de Neovilla" against "Willelmum priorem de Cuwyc" for "ecclesiam de Alfinctona…aduocacionem", the defendant stating that "Hawisia de Curtenay…matris ipsius Roberti" granted the advocacy of the church to "Henricum de Curtenay […quondam] in ligia viduitate sua" who donated it to "ecclesie de Cuwyk", while the claimant stated that "Robertus de Curtenay quondam dominus feodi illius" gave "manerium de Alfinctona in maritagium cum filia sua ipsi Johanni" and that he gave it to "Johannem de Curtenay" who relinquished it.
