  General Notes:

ESILIA, daughter of --- (-after 1086). "Robertus Malet" founded Eye priory, for the souls of "patris mei Willelmi Malet et matris meć Hesilić" who became a nun there, by undated charter dated to the reign of William I King of England. Domesday Book records "Robert Malet´s mother" holding land from Robert Malet in Suffolk. [same person as…? ESILIA, daughter of GILBERT Crispin & his wife Gunnora ---. The De nobili genere Crispinorum names "Emmam, Petri de Condeto genetricem, atque Esiliam, matrem Willelmi Malet" as the two daughters of "Gislebertus…Crispini cognomen" and his wife. However, the wife of her supposed son Guillaume Malet is recorded in a later primary source with the same name so it is possible that the De nobili genere confuses Guillaume´s mother with his wife.] Simeon of Durham records that "Willelmo Malet qui tunc vicecomitatum gerebat cum sua coniuge et duobus liberis" were made prisoner by the Danes after the capture of the city of York by King William´s forces, dated to 1069. 1
