  General Notes:

OLIVER de Tracy of Barnstaple (-after 1203). "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. The Red Book of the Exchequer refers to "Oliver de Tracy xvii l x s" in Devonshire in [1167/68]. The Red Book of the Exchequer records enfeoffments in the duchy of Normandy in [1172], "Oliverus de Tracieio" with one knight "de vicecomitatu de Cerenciis" and four knights in his own service. The 1176/77 Pipe Roll names "Oliverus de Traci…pro parte sua de honore de Berdestapl" in Devonshire. The Red Book of the Exchequer, listing scutage payments in [1194/95], names "Olyver de Tracy" among those granted delay in payment "per brevia" in Devonshire. The Feet of Fines records an agreement 28 Jan 1196 settling a claim by "Will de Breosa" against "Oliver de Traci" for "medietate honoris de Bordestapl", tracing the alienations made by "predicto Olivero vel Henrico patre suo". "…Will de Traceio, Oliv de Traceio" both paid rent on land in Normandy, dated 1198. "Oliver de Traci" paid a fine for "heritanda baroñ Willi de Traci" in Devonshire, dated [1199/1200]. The Rotulus Cancellarii records "Oliverus de Traci" owing in Devonshire, dated [27 May 1201/26 May 1202]. "Lucia de Moon […terre de Moon]…Will de Traceio…versus Oliv de Traceio" all paid rent in "Ballia Constancien" in Normandy, dated 1203.

[m firstly ---. No primary source has yet been identified which confirms this supposed first marriage. However, if Eva was his known wife, and she had children by her first marriage who had not reached the age of majority by [1218/19], it is unlikely that she was the only wife of Oliver who was already old enough in 1146 to suscribe a charter with his father.]

m [secondly] [as her second husband,] EVA, widow of THOMAS de London, daughter of [FULK FitzWarin [II] & his wife Hawise de Dinan] (-after [Jun] 1222). The Testa de Nevill includes a list of landholdings, dated 1219, which includes "Eva de Trascey" holding land "in Esgarestona…in hundredo de Launburn" in Berkshire and "Bovy" in Devonshire. The parentage of Eva, and her relationship to the main Tracy family shown above, has not been traced. She could have been the widow of Oliver de Tracy. The king ordered the sheriff of Berkshire to "take into the king´s hands" the lands of "Fulk fitz Warin and Eva de Tracy and her sister on account of the son and heir of Thomas de London, who they detain from the king", dated to [1218/19]. This document suggests that Eva was closely related to Fulk FitzWarin [III], maybe his sister. Her first marriage is confirmed by an order to the sheriff of Devon to take "the daughter and heiress of Thomas of London [if] found in his bailiwick" and "if she has been abducted out of the bailiwick" to confiscate the lands of "Eva de Tracy her mother", dated to [1218/19]. "Eva de Tracy" paid a fine for "having a weekly market…at her manor of Bovey", dated 23 Oct 1219. "William Crassus the first-born" paid a fine to marry "the daughter and heiress of Thomas de London", dated to [Dec] 1219. "Eva de Tracy" made a fine for marrying "Hawise her daughter…without licence", dated [Jun] 1222. The Pipe Roll 1223 records "Eva de Tracy...quia maritavit Hawisam filiam suam sine licencia R. que fuit de donatione sue" owing in "Nova Oblata" in Devon. "Paganus de Cadurcis filius et hæres dominæ Hawisiæ de Londonia" donated land to Whiteland, Carmarthenshire, for the souls of "dominorum Thomæ de Londonia, Patricii de Cadurcis, Will. et Mauricii de Londonia, Warini de Bassingburne, dominæ Evæ de Tracy, Aleys et Gundre defunctorum", by charter dated May 1270, witnessed by "dominis Patricio et Hernico militibus, fratribus nostris".

Oliver & his second wife had one child: Henry. 4


Oliver married Eve FitzWarin, daughter of Fulk [II] FitzWarin and Hawise de Dinan.1 (Eve FitzWarin was born about 1179 and died after Jun 1222.)
