HAWISE, daughter of ---. "Robertus de Laceio" founded Pontefract Priory, for the soul of "Hylberti patris mei et Hawisiæ matris meæ", by undated charter. "Hilbertus de Laceio…cum Hadrude uxore mea" donated property to the Holy Trinity of the Mount, Rouen, for the souls of "…filiique mei Hugonis" who is buried there, by charter dated to [1088/94]. It is not known whether "Hadrude" was a mistranscription for Hawise, or whether Ilbert had two wives with these names. A manuscript history of the Lacy family records that "Ilberto de Lacy…uxor eius" was buried "ad sinistrum cornu altaris [sancti Benedicti]" (which appears from the context to refer to Pontefract Priory). The Liber Vitæ of Durham names "Ilbertus de Laceio, Hathewis sua uxor, Rodbertus et Hugo filii eorum".
