  General Notes:

CECILY (-1207). A manuscript narrating the foundation of Lilleshall Abbey, Shropshire records that "Rogerus comes Hereford" married "vicecomes Paganus…filiam". King Stephen confirmed to "Rogo filio Milonis Gloec et Cecilie uxori sue filie Pag fil Johis" the lands of her father by charter dated to [Dec 1137/May 1138]. Heiress of Swanscombe, Kent. The primary source which confirms her second marriage has not yet been identified. "Walter de Maine" confirmed the donation of land in Perriton to Bruton by undated charter witnessed by "Cecilia comitissa uxore mea…". "Walterus de Meduana" confirmed to King Henry II that he held "in capite...xx milites" in Kent which "Galfridus Tallebot" had held on the death of King Henry I, dated 1166. The Red Book of the Exchequer, listing scutage payments in [1190/91], records "comitissa Hereford quæ fuit uxor Walteri de Meduana" paying "xiv l x s de scutagio militum de veteri feffamento xxix milites" in Kent. Bracton records a claim in 1232 made by "Warinus de Monte Canisio" against "Adam de Kailly et Mabiliam uxorem eius...Isabellam de Friuilla...Matillidem Giffard" for land "in Luddeduna" inherited from "Cecilia [...comitissa] antecess sua...quia obiit sine herede de se descendit...Agneti...sorori et heredi et quia ipse Willelmus obiit sine herede...de se descendit...isti Warino...fratri et heredi suo", and that the defendants replied that "Cecilia comitissa" had given the land, which "Willelmus de Pictavia...virum suum" held for one knight's fee, to "Ricardo Giffard patri predictarum Mabilie et Isabelle...Osbertus filius Ricardi" and that "mortuo predicto Willelmo" Cecilia had married "Walterum de Meinne".
