  General Notes:

GUILLAUME d'Arques (-[1090]). Guillaume de Jumièges records that "Gunnor" had "excepta Sainfria...duas sorores Wewam et Avelinam", adding that "tertia...sororum Gunnoris comitissæ" [Aveline, from the context] married "Osberno de Bolebec", by whom she had "Galterium Giffardum primum et Godefridum patrem Willelmi de Archis". "Guillelmus et Gislebertus filii Godefredi Archarum vicecomitis" donated land in Montvilla to Sainte-Trinité de Rouen dated 1059. Vicomte d'Arques. Lord of Folkestone. A charter dated 1080 relates that "Gozelinus vicecomes de Archis…cum coniuge sua et filiis" founded Sainte-Trinité de Rouen and donated property, and that "Willelmus de Archis heres defuncti…avi sui Gozelini" confirmed the donation. [Orderic Vitalis records "Edgarus Adelinus et Robertus Belesmensis atque Guillelmus de Archis monachus Molismensis" as the advisers of Robert [III] Duke of Normandy, dated to [1089]. It is possible that the third named person was Guillaume Vicomte d´Arques but no other record has been found that he became a monk at Molesme in Burgundy before he died.]

m BEATRIX Malet, daughter of GUILLAUME [I] Malet & his wife Esilia [Crespin]. "Beatrix soror Roberti Malet" donated property to Eye priory, for the souls of "fratrum meorum Roberti Maleth et Gilberti Malet", by undated charter. Brown indicates that Beatrix donated Redlingfield to Eye by undated charter which confirms her as husband of "William vicomte of Arques". "Willielmus de Abrincis miles dominus de Folkestan" confirmed donations to Folkestone priory, including the donations made by "Beatrix post mortem domini sui Willielmi de Archis" of "terram dotis suæ de Newenton" by undated charter.

Guillaume & his wife had two children: Mathilde and Emma. 1

Guillaume married Beatrix Malet, daughter of Guillaume [I] Malet and Esilia, before 1086.1
