  General Notes:

RICHARD FitzPons (-[1127/29]). "Ricardus filius Puncii" donated "ecclesiam de Lecha" to Great Malvern monastery, Worcestershire, for the soul of "uxoris meć Mathildis et liberorum meorum…", by undated charter, witnessed by "Simon et Osbernus fratres mei…". "…Ricardo filio Poncii…" witnessed the charter dated 1121 under which Henry I King of England confirmed the grant of "heredibus suis Herefordiam [parvam et] Ullingeswicam" to "Waltero de Gloec" by the bishop of Hereford. The charter dated to [10 Apr/29 May] 1121 which records the arrangements for the marriage of "Miloni de Gloec" and "Sibilia filia Beorndi de Novo Mercato" refers to land held by "Ric fil Pontii". A charter dated to [1127] records that "Ricard Pontii filii" granted the manor of "Lechia" to "Mathildi uxori mee in matrimoniu" in exchange for her original marriage portion, the manor of Ullingswick in Herefordshire, which he gave to "Helie Giff in mat-monu cum filia mea Berta". Richard presumably died before [1129] as he is not named in the [1129/30] Pipe Roll. Henry I King of England confirmed a donation to Llanthony priory which "Ricardus filius Pontii" had made with the consent of "Hugonis filii Pontii", by charter dated [1130].

m MATILDA, daughter of [WALTER of Gloucester & his wife Berthe ---] (-after [1127]). A charter dated to [1127] records that "Ricard Pontii filii" granted the manor of "Lechia" to "Mathildi uxori mee in matrimoniu" in exchange for her original marriage portion, the manor of Ullingswick in Herefordshire, which he gave to "Helie Giff in mat-monu cum filia mea Berta". Round indicates that this charter means that Matilda must have been the daughter of Walter of Gloucester, noting that Ullingswick was recorded in Domesday Book as belonging to the church of Hereford, and also that King Henry I confirmed its grant and that of Little Hereford by the bishop of Hereford to Walter of Gloucester by another charter. The fact that Matilda named two of her children after her supposed parents also indicates that this parentage is probably correct (although the name Walter was already used in the FitzPons family before Richard´s marriage). "Ricardus filius Puncii" donated "ecclesiam de Lecha" to Great Malvern monastery, Worcestershire, for the soul of "uxoris meć Mathildis et liberorum meorum…", by undated charter, witnessed by "Simon et Osbernus fratres mei…".

Richard & his wife had four children: Simon, Roger, Walter and Bertha. 1


Richard married Matilda of Gloucester, daughter of Walter of Gloucester High Sheriff of Gloucestershire and Berthe.1 (Matilda of Gloucester died after 1127.)
