Re: MEDIEVAL MORVAL/DAMAREL/GIDLEIGH COODES; DESCENDANTS OF DE ALBEMARLE, VIVYAN, PROUZ/PROUS/PROWSE/PRIDEAUX; MOELES & VAN KEPPEL
Background: Several Earls of Damarell, Damarel, D'Aumerle, Albemarle, Albermarle, D'Aumale or De Albemarle, are said to descend from ODO OF CHAMPAGNE [COUNT OF AUMALE IN NORMANDY]who married Adeliza, sister of William I, and acquired the title of Count of Aumale in Normandy and Earl of Albemarle and Holdernesse; and William de Albemarle, Baron of Fougeres, Bretagne, who obtained grants at the Conquest (Morice, Hist...DESCENDANTS:POLE, DEVON; J.R. Planché Eudes, or Odo de Champagne from The Conqueror and His Companions (Tinsley Brothers, 1874).A descendant of this family is William Le Gros (WILLELMUS DE ALBAMARA, b 1135, d. ll79-1189), Earl of Albemarle, who married Hawise of Aumale Countess of Albemarle (1179-1214), and led the Flemings in invasion of Ireland (Ref. Source:HISTORY OF THE NORMAN KINGS: King Stephen; History of the Normans, pg. 299 -).William le Gros also fought at the battle of the Standard in 1138 after which sources state that Stephen made him the 'Earl of York' for his part in the defeat of David I of Scotland. (Note: Stephen de Albemarle/Aumale was son of the Conqueror's half sister; brother of Judith and Earl Waltheof's widow.)
