  General Notes:

HENRY de Tracy of Barnstaple (-[1164/65]). "William de Tracy" donated property to Mont Saint-Michel on becoming a monk there by charter dated 1110, signed by "…Guillelmi de Traceio, Rohes[ie] uxoris sue, Turgisi filii sui, Henrici filii sui, Gieve sororis sue". "Henricus de Traci…cum filio meo Olivero" donated property to Barnstaple Priory by charter 1146. The 1164/65 Pipe Roll records "Oliverus de Traci" owing ".D. m p parte sua de Honore de Barnestapl" in Devonshire, maybe indicating the recent death of his father.

m firstly HAWISE, daughter of ---. Her marriage is confirmed by an undated charter which confirms that her grandson "domini Henrici de Tracy" requested a daily mass at Pilton St James, for the souls of "Henrici de Traci avi sui et Oliveri patris sui et Hawysić avć suć".

m secondly (after [1130/35]) as her second husband, CECILY de Rumilly, widow of WILLIAM FitzRanulf Meschin, daughter and heiress of ROBERT de Rumilly [Romilly] of Skipton & his wife ---. Domesday Descendants notes that Cecily de Rumilly married as her second husband "Henry de Tracy of Barnstaple", without citing the corresponding primary source, but adds that "there is no evidence to suggest that she was the mother of Henry de Tracy´s heir Oliver".

Henry & his first wife had one child: Oliver.

Henry married Hawise.

Henry next married Cecily de Rumilly, daughter of Robert de Rumilly and Cecily, after 1130-1135.1
