; per van de Pas: [quote]James Butler, 2nd Earl of Ormonde was nicknamed 'the Noble Earl' because of his royal descent, but the Irish called him 'the Chaste'. Remaining in his mother's charge until 1345 but, on 20 April 1344, his custody and marriage were granted first to the Earl of Desmond and, on 24 March 1346, to Sir John Darcy. James Butler married Elizabeth, the daughter of the latter.

Though still under sixteen years of age, in February 1347 he did fealty and had order for livery of his inheritance, including the Butlership, because the King wished for his services overseas. However, in March 1350 he was appointed Constable of Dublin Castle for life. In November 1351 he was present at the opening of the English Parliament at Winchester, but he resided chiefly in Ireland, distinguishing himself in the wars there and receiving many grants for his good services, in one of which he was styled Earl of Ormonde and Carrick.

He was several times Chief Governor of Ireland. Early in 1372 he took a force over to England to the King's service. In December 1381, after the death of the Earl of March, the Lord Lieutenant, the Earl of Ormonde was of the Council and refused the Lieutenancy. He died, aged fifty-one, in 1382 and was buried in the church of Gowran. About a year later his widow married Sir Robert de Hereford and she died 24 March 1390.[end quote]2 He was Chief Governor of Ireland.12,1

; Faris (1999, p. 59): [quote] JAMES BUTLER (or LE BOTILLER), 2nd Earl of Ormond, was born at Kilkenny on 4 Oct. 1331. He resided chiefly in Ireland, distinguishing himself in the wars there, and receiving many grants for his good services. He was several times Chief Governor of Ireland. He was married (with papal dispensation dated 15 May 1346, the parties being related in the fourth degree) to ELIZABETH DARCY, daughter of John Darcy, Knt., of Knaith, co. Lincoln (of baronial descent), probably by his second wife Joan, fourth daughter of Richard Burgh, Earl of Ulster (of Magna Carta Surety descent and descendant of Charlemagne). JAMES BUTLER, Earl of Ormond, died aged fifty-one in his castle of Knocktopher on 18 Oct. (or 6 Nov.) 1382, and was buried at Gowran. His widow was married between 28 Dec. 1383 and 30 Mar. 1384 to Robert de Hereford, Knt. She died on 24 Mar. 1389/90.

It has been surmised, as Theobald II is required to do homage to the

     "ROBERT (-before 25 Oct 1221, bur Hatfield Priory). He succeeded his brother in 1214 as Earl of Oxford, Hereditary Master Chamberlain. The Chronicle of Ralph of Coggeshall records the death in 1221 of "Robertus de Ver comes Oxoniensis"[1106]. The Annals of Dunstable record that “comes Robertus de Wer” died in 1222[1107].
     "m (after 1206) as her second husband, ISABEL de Bolebec, widow of HENRY de Nonant, daughter of HUGH de Bolebec of Whitchurch, Buckinghamshire & his wife --- (-3 Feb 1245, bur Oxford, Church of the Preaching Friars). Her two marriages are confirmed by the Testa de Nevill which includes a writ of King John dated 1212 recording that "Robertus de Ver" held "manerium de Cliston" in Devon "de dote cum Isabella uxore sua que fuit uxor Henrici de Nunant", adding that King Henry I had first granted the manor to "Rogero de Nunant antecessori suo"[1108]. Henry III King of England granted custody of "terre et heredis ipsius Roberti et filii ipsius Ysabelle" to "Ysabelle de Bolebec que fuit uxor R. de Ver quondam comitis Oxonie" dated [Nov] 1221[1109]. This was renewed by a further order dated 20 Oct 1222 under which King Henry III granted custody of "Hugonis filii et heredis Roberti de Ver, quondam comitis Oxonie" to "Ysabelle de Bolebec comitisse Oxonie" dated 19 Jun 1222[1110]. The primary source which confirms her parentage more precisely has not been identified."

1. Richard de Clare, Earl of Hertford
2. William de Forz, Earl of Albemarle
3. Geoffrey de Mandeville, Earl of Essex and Gloucester

23. William of Huntingfield, Sheriff of Norfolk and Suffolk
24. Richard de Montfichet
25. William d'Aubigny, Lord of Belvoir

Excommunicated rebels
     "In September 1215, the papal commissioners in England – Subdeacon Pandulf, Peter des Roches, Bishop of Winchester, and Simon, Abbot of Reading – excommunicated the rebels, acting on instructions earlier received from Rome. A letter sent by the commissioners from Dover on 5 September to Archbishop Langton explicitly names nine senior rebel barons (all members of the Council of Twenty-Five), and six clerics numbered among the rebel ranks:[67]
Barons

; From Find A Grave:
     BIRTH     1110, Essex, England
     DEATH     26 Dec 1194 (aged 83–84), Greater London, England
     1st Earl of Oxford, Royal Chamberlain
     Eldest son of Aubrey de Vere, Master Chamberlain under King Henry I, and Alice de Clare, grandson of Aubrey de Vere, Gilbert FitzRichard de Clare and Adeliza de Claremont. He was born about 1110, and had four brothers and four sisters.
     Aubrey was the husband of Beatrice, the daughter of Henry, the Constable of Bourbourg, the granddaughter and heiress to Manasses, the Count of Guines in France. After he became Earl of Oxford, and about 1143, he refused to live with Beatrice whose father arranged a divorce, and Aubrey lost his title of Count of Guines.
     Aubrey married a second time, to Euphemia, said to be the daughter of William de Cantilupe. They married in or before 1152, but Euphemia died before late 1153, buried at Colne Priory.
     Aubrey was married a third time, to Agnes, the daughter of Henry de Essex, Lord of Rayleigh. Aubrey was over fifty, Agnes was eleven. Within a year, Aubrey tried to reject her as his wife based on she was living with his brother and her father had been completely disgraced. He had kept her confined, not allowing her outside access, until friends of Agnes appealed to the Bishop of London all the way up to Pope Alexander III, who directed the Bishop to demand her rights be reinstated within twenty days or experience excommunication. As a result, Aubrey and Agnes had four sons and one daughter; Aubrey 2nd Earl, Ralph, Robert, Henry and Alice.
     Aubrey had a large part in the civil war between King Stephen and Matilda. He succeeded his father who was slain in a riot in London on 15 May 1141, during the civil war. After King Stephen was captured at the Battle of Lincoln, Aubrey switched loyalties to the Empress, but only until the King was freed in November, when Stephen confirmed his inheritance.
     In 1142, he supposedly joined his brother in law, Geoffrey de Mandeville, in his plot against King Stephen, Matilda granted him the position of Royal Chamberlain in 1142 for his loyalty, as well as the title of Earl or Count Aubrey. He would be awarded with his choice of four titles, Aubrey chose the Earl of Oxford. Stephen discovered the plot, Aubrey was arrested at St Albans and surrendered Canfield Castle for his freedom, and refused to acknowledge Aubrey's titles or position. After Matilda's death, Aubrey was with Stephen at the siege of Wallingford, where the king finally recognized Aubrey as the Earl of Oxford just before the end of the civil war.
     Aubrey followed the next King, Henry II, the son of Matilda, who confirmed Aubrey's grants, and helping to resist Robert de Beaumont at Suffolk in 1173. Aubrey was present at the coronation of King Richard I in 1189, Aubrey wed his eldest son of Isabel de Bolebec after paying a sum of 500 marks in 1190, and was required to help pay the king's ransom to the Emperor Henry VI in 1194.
     Aubrey was a benefactor to several religious houses, including Colne Priory, the family seat, and Hatfield Regis Priory.

possibly also had 5 knights' fees in Haughley, Essex as her maritagium: 'She was holding 5 fees of the honour of Haughley in 1206 in her widowhood, possibly representing her marriage portion (which had probably been arranged before her father's downfall). As the Haughley barony consisted of 50 knights' fees and the Rayleigh barony had consisted of about 48-58, [Sanders 120, 139], this is a very small proportion of the total. Most of it remained in the king's hands after confiscation, although in 1205 Gilbert Stanford (Sanford?) answered for 13 fees "a sixth part" of the honor of Henry de Essex and four and a half fees of the honour of Haughley [Red Book of the Exchequer, p.748].'[9]

; Per Wikipedia:
     "Aubrey de Vere, 1st Earl of Oxford (c. 1115 – 26 December 1194) was a noble involved in the succession conflict between King Stephen and Empress Matilda in the mid-twelfth century.
     "He was the son of Aubrey de Vere, master chamberlain, and Alice (died c. 1163), a daughter of Gilbert de Clare.
     "In 1136 or 1137 Aubrey de Vere married Beatrice, the daughter of Henry, Constable of Bourbourg, and the granddaughter and heiress of Manasses, Count of Guînes in the Pas de Calais. After the death of Manasses late in 1138, Aubrey travelled to Guînes, did homage to Thierry, Count of Flanders, and was made Count of Guînes by right of his wife.[1] The marriage, however, may not have been consummated, due to the poor health of Beatrice.
     "Aubrey de Vere succeeded on 15 May 1141, after his father had been slain by a mob in London[2] at a time of civil war between King Stephen and the Empress Matilda over the succession to the crown. King Stephen had been captured at the Battle of Lincoln in February 1141, so Aubrey did homage to the Empress. His brother-in-law, the Earl of Essex, appears to have negotiated the grant of an earldom to Aubrey in July 1141, which grant was confirmed by Henry fitz Empress in Normandy. The latter charter provided that Aubrey de Vere would be Earl of Cambridgeshire, with the third penny, unless that county were held by the King of Scots, in which case he was to have a choice of four other titles. In the event, de Vere took the title of Earl of Oxford.[3] Earl Geoffrey made his peace with King Stephen when the king regained his freedom late in 1141 and most likely Aubrey de Vere did as well.
     "In 1143, however, the King arrested Essex and Oxford at St. Albans. Both were forced to surrender their castles to the King to regain their liberty. The earl of Essex retaliated by rebelling against the king; it appears that Oxford did not actively or openly support his brother-in-law.
     "At some time between 1144 and 1146 the Constable of Bourbourg, arranged a divorce for his daughter Countess Beatrice with Earl Aubrey's consent, after which Oxford ceased to be Count of Guînes.[4]
     "In or before 1151 Oxford married Euphemia. King Stephen and his wife, Queen Maud, gave the manor of Ickleton, Cambridgeshire, as Euphemia's marriage portion. The marriage was short-lived; Euphemia was dead by 1154, leaving no known issue. She was buried at Colne Priory. On 3 May 1152 Queen Maud died at Oxford's seat of Castle Hedingham,[5] and in the winter of 1152–3 Oxford was with the King at the siege of Wallingford, attesting important charters in 1153 as "earl Aubrey."
     "In 1162 or 1163 Earl Aubrey took as his third wife Agnes, the daughter of Henry of Essex, lord of Rayleigh. At the time of the marriage Agnes was probably aged twelve. Soon after their marriage, Aubrey's father-in-law was accused of treason and fought (and lost) a judicial duel. By 1165 he attempted to have the marriage annulled, allegedly because Agnes had been betrothed to his brother, Geoffrey de Vere, but probably in reality because her father had been disgraced and ruined. Oxford reportedly 'kept his wife shut up and did not allow her to attend church or go out, and refused to cohabit with her', according to the letter the bishop of London wrote to the Pope about the case when the young countess appealed to the Roman Curia. The pope sided with Agnes and declared the marriage valid, but the earl continued to refuse to take her back as his wife. Agnes's friends appealed to the Bishop of London, and ultimately to Pope Alexander III, who in 1171 or 1172 directed the bishop to order Oxford to restore her to her conjugal rights or to suffer interdiction and excommunication.[6] By Agnes, Oxford eventually had four sons, Aubrey de Vere, 2nd Earl of Oxford, Ralph, Robert de Vere, 3rd Earl of Oxford, and Henry, and a daughter, Alice.[7]
     "In 1184 Oxford obtained the wardship of the person of Isabel de Bolebec, daughter of Walter de Bolebec,[8] but not the custody of her lands. In 1190 he paid 500 marks for the right to marry her to his eldest son and heir, Aubrey de Vere, later 2nd Earl of Oxford.[9]
     "Oxford served during the civil war of 1173–4, helping to repel a force under Robert de Beaumont, 3rd Earl of Leicester, which landed in Suffolk on 29 September 1173.[10] He was present on 3 September 1189 at the coronation of King Richard I.[11]
     "Oxford died 26 December 1194, and was buried at Colne Priory. His third wife survived him, and later was buried by his side.[12]
     "Oxford was a benefactor to several religious houses, including Colne Priory, and Hatfield Regis Priory. He and his wife founded a small nunnery at Castle Hedingham in Essex.

     "Vere, Aubrey de, count of Guînes and earl of Oxford (d. 1194), magnate, was the son of Aubrey (II) de Vere (d. 1141), royal chamberlain, and Alice (d. 1163?), daughter of Gilbert de Clare, and sister of Gilbert fitz Gilbert de Clare, earl of Pembroke. Among his eight siblings was William de Vere, who became bishop of Hereford in 1186. By the time of his father's death Aubrey (III) was already politically prominent. His career was remarkable for the accumulation of large numbers of estates throughout England. In 1139 he had acquired the comital title by marrying Beatrice, the heir to her grandfather, Manasses, count of Guînes in the Pas-de-Calais (who enjoyed a moiety of the lordship of Folkestone and estates in the honour of Boulogne in Suffolk). He defected to the Empress Matilda in the aftermath of the capture of Stephen at Lincoln in February 1141. In May 1141 Count Aubrey succeeded his father, who had died in a riot in London. It would seem that he was briefly reconciled to the king after Stephen's release in September 1141, for there is a reference to the king's confirmation of the lands he had from his father. In 1141 the empress had offered him for his adherence the earldom of Cambridge, or, if that was not satisfactory, a choice of four other titles: he chose Oxford. She added to these grants the castle of Colchester. At this time Earl Aubrey was closely associated with his brother-in-law, Geoffrey de Mandeville, earl of Essex, and was arrested with him in 1143, having to surrender the castle of Canfield to secure his release. He was a character of some importance in East Anglia during the latter years of Stephen's reign. There seems every reason to believe (in view of the number of appearances in his charters) that Earl Aubrey acted as an auxiliary of Geoffrey de Mandeville, until the latter's death in 1144. If so, he would have spent a period in opposition to the king. But it is equally likely that after Mandeville's death, Earl Aubrey would have returned to neutrality; something that his close family connection with the loyalist Clares would have made easy to accomplish. Between 1144 and 1146 he was divorced from his wife, thus losing his connection with Guînes. When he remarried he was clearly in King Stephen's obedience once more, for the king and queen contributed the manor of Ickleton, Cambridgeshire, to the marriage portion of the new countess, Euphemia, who had died by late 1153, and who was said on later evidence to have been the daughter of William de Cantilupe. The countess on her deathbed made a grant for the late queen's soul and that of her son, which was confirmed by the king.
     "In 1153 Earl Aubrey was with Stephen's army at the siege of Wallingford, and he attested the treaty of Westminster, which established the succession, in November 1153. With the accession of Henry II in 1154 Earl Aubrey was able to make good his claim to his comital rights in Oxfordshire, where the new king conceded him the third penny of the profits of justice in a charter of January 1156, and also allowed him succession to the chamberlainship of the exchequer which the earl's father had held. The castle of Colchester, however, was not confirmed to him. The earl attested royal charters until 1160, but thereafter disappears from the Plantagenet court for a time. He was active however on the king's behalf during the wars of 1173–4, joining the royalist army which defeated the earl of Leicester's invasion in Suffolk. He attended the king in England several times before Henry II's death in 1189, and was at the first coronation of King Richard in September of that year.
     "Earl Aubrey's later career was notable for the notorious divorce proceedings he took to rid himself of his third wife, Agnes of Essex (b. 1151, d. in or after 1206), daughter of Henry of Essex, the royal constable, whom he married early in 1163 (when she was twelve) inopportunely just before her father's disgrace and ruin. Earl Aubrey pursued his case to Rome, where it was ultimately settled in Agnes's favour in 1171 or 1172. The earl had in the meantime kept his wife under close guard in one of his castles, refusing her leave to go out even to hear mass and refusing to acknowledge her as countess of Oxford. There does seem to have been a reconciliation between the pair ultimately: Countess Agnes attested several of his later charters and consented to an alienation of a rent from her marriage portion to Colne Priory; also all the earl's four sons were born from his marriage with Agnes (including the youngest, named Henry after his disgraced grandfather). Earl Aubrey died, probably in his late seventies, possibly even his early eighties, on 26 December 1194, and was buried at Colne Priory in Essex, being survived by Countess Agnes. He left four sons: his heir, Earl Aubrey (IV) de Vere, Ralph (who died before his elder brother), Robert de Vere, who later succeeded to the earldom, and the Henry already mentioned. The chronicle of Lambert of Ardres calls him (perhaps as a pun on his surname) Aubrey Aper (‘the Boar’). This is doubtless the source of the de Vere family's livery badge, a boar's head, found on their seals as early as the later thirteenth century. Later tradition calls him Aubrey the Grim from a mistranscription of aper as Asper.
     "Earl Aubrey's significance in the politics of the anarchy and the early Angevin monarchy is by no means small: his volatility and attachment to the Mandeville earls made Essex unstable in the 1140s and threatened the king's control of London. The remarkable thing is that he was able to achieve so much on so narrow a landed base. The carta of his honour of Hedingham reveals in 1166 a barony of merely 2914 and 18 fees held in chief, and his earldom of Oxford brought no assets other than the annual third penny. The answer to this puzzle would seem to be the enormous wealth accumulated by his father as a leading royal justice. Through this, and through political favours, he followed his father's own work in accumulating a great demesne estate in Essex and Suffolk from many sources, the mechanics of which may be partly glimpsed through notes of the lost archive once at Hedingham. This tells of substantial conveyances from at least a dozen individuals, including the duke of Brittany, the earl of Hertford, the bishop of Ely, and the abbot of Bury St Edmunds. Earl Aubrey continued to patronize in lavish style his father's foundation of Colne Priory, and, in addition, confirmed gifts to his father's other foundation of Hatfield Regis. He also made modest grants to the nuns of Hedingham, whose house he perhaps founded.

; Per Genealogics:
     "Aubrey was born about 1115, the son of Aubrey de Vere, Great Chamberlain of England, and Alice de Clare. He had eight siblings, outliving all but his two youngest brothers and youngest sister. In July 1141, after the death of his father in a London riot, he was granted an earldom by Empress Matilda, and was confirmed as the first earl of Oxford by her son King Henry II of England. From his father he inherited estates in Essex, Cambridgeshire, Suffolk, Northamptonshire, Huntingdonshire and Middlesex. These were traditionally assessed at approximately 30 knights' fees.
     "He had inherited the barony of Hedingham on the death of his father in May 1141, when he was already Count of Guines by right of his wife Beatrice de Bourbourg, daughter of Henry de Bourbourg, Constable of Bourbourg, and Sibyl de Guines. In 1139 and 1154 he was appointed High Sheriff of Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire. On the annulment of his first marriage, between 1144-1146, he lost Guines. Aubrey was little involved in national political affairs after this period. About 1152 he married his second wife Eufeme, about whom nothing is recorded but who died childless in 1153-54.
     "Between 1162 and 1163 Aubrey married Agnes de Essex, daughter of Henry de Essex, lord of Rayleigh and Haughley, and probably his first wife Cecily de Valoins. They had five children, four sons and a daughter, of whom only Robert is recorded with progeny. Aubrey's attempt to divorce Agnes was a celebrated marriage case that Agnes appealed successfully to Pope Alexander III.
     "In 1153 Aubrey was present with King Stephen's army at the siege of Wallingford and attested at the Treaty of Wallingford, finally signed at Westminster. Two of his sons by Agnes, Aubrey and Robert, became earls of Oxford. The elder Aubrey died on 26 December 1194, and was buried at the family mausoleum founded by his grandfather, Colne Priory, Essex."3

3rd wife of Aubrey de Vere[5]
her maritagium included land in Stoke (CP Vol X, Oxford - p. 207n)[5]
possibly also had 5 knights' fees in Haughley, Essex as her maritagium: 'She was holding 5 fees of the honour of Haughley in 1206 in her widowhood, possibly representing her marriage portion (which had probably been arranged before her father's downfall). As the Haughley barony consisted of 50 knights' fees and the Rayleigh barony had consisted of about 48-58, [Sanders 120, 139], this is a very small proportion of the total. Most of it remained in the king's hands after confiscation, although in 1205 Gilbert Stanford (Sanford?) answered for 13 fees "a sixth part" of the honor of Henry de Essex and four and a half fees of the honour of Haughley [Red Book of the Exchequer, p.748].'[9]

; Per Wikipedia:
     "Agnes of Essex, Countess of Oxford (1151– 1212 or later) was the daughter of a royal constable Henry of Essex and his second wife, Alice.[1] At the age of three she was betrothed to Geoffrey de Vere, brother of the first Earl of Oxford, and turned over to be raised by the Veres soon thereafter. She remained in the household of the earl of Oxford about three years, then moved to Geoffrey's care. In her eleventh year Agnes rejected the match with Geoffrey and by early 1163 was married to his eldest brother Aubrey de Vere III, 1st Earl of Oxford, as his third wife.
     "In spring 1163, Agnes's father Henry was accused of treason and fought (and lost) a judicial duel. After her father's disgrace and the resulting forfeiture of his lands and offices, the earl of Oxford sought to have his marriage to Agnes annulled. On 9 May 1166, she appealed her case from the court of the bishop of London to the pope (the archbishop of Canterbury, Thomas Becket, being in exile at the time).[2] While the case was pending in Rome, the earl reportedly kept Agnes confined in one of his three castles, for which the bishop of London Gilbert Foliot reprimanded Aubrey.[2] Pope Alexander III ruled in her favor, thus establishing the canon law requirement of consent by females in betrothal and the sacrament of marriage.
     "The couple later jointly founded a Benedictine priory for nuns near their castle at Castle Hedingham, Essex around 1190. Countess Agnes long survived her husband and in 1198 paid the crown for the right to remain unmarried. She died sometime in or after 1212 and was buried in the Vere mausoleum at Colne Priory, Essex.[3]
Name Dispute
Many mistakenly have called Earl Aubrey's third wife Lucia, rather than Agnes. This mistake is based on a misreading of a single document associated with a religious house at Hedingham, Essex. A woman named Lucia was the first prioress at Castle Hedingham Priory. On her death in the early thirteenth century, an illustrated mortuary or 'bede' roll was carried to many religious houses requesting prayers for her soul. In the preface of that document Lucia is called the foundress of the priory. As the role of "founder" is generally ascribed to lay patrons and the countess presumably cooperated with her husband in the founding of the house, 18th-century scholars erroneously assumed that the prioress was Earl Aubrey's widow. Royal records disprove that assumption. [4]
Children
     "Agnes bore her husband four sons and a daughter, including two future earls of Oxford: Aubrey IV and Robert I. Her daughter Alice married 1) Ernulf de Kemesech, 2) John, constable of Chester. Agnes's son Henry appears to have become chancellor of Hereford Cathedral under his uncle, Bishop William de Vere, and later a royal clerk under King John of England.[5] Little is known of Ralph de Vere except that he may have been the second son (from the order in which he witnessed his father's charters) and died before 1214, when his younger brother Robert succeeded to the earldom on the death of Aubrey IV, 2nd earl.

; Cecily de Valoins[5] - or Cicely[5], as to her identification as a daughter of Roger de Valoins and Agnes fitz John, Rosie Bevan wrote: 'About the identity of Cecily, abstracts of charters in the PRO point to further Valognes links.
PRO E 40/3699
Grant by Agnes de Waloniis, to Gunnora de Essex', her niece and foster child, of all the land and fee which she holds of the bishopric of Ely and of Roger de Thorn, viz. Westley, Fulburn and Feversam, which William Delmaneir holds, and the land called 'the land of the small hall;' to be held by the service of two knights, which the said William will perform, and a sparrowhawk yearly. (Twelfth Century)
PRO E 40/3958
Grant by Peter, the prior, and the convent of Binham, to Gunnora de Estsexia, for her life, or until she takes the veil, of land in Westleia granted to them, in frank almoin, by Lady Agnes de Valoniis, and Robert de Valoniis, her son. Witnesses:- John, the chaplain of the countess, Robert de Ver, Geoffrey de berleia, and others (named): Camb. Twelfth century. The grant by the prior of the convent of Binham, Norfolk, which Peter de Valognes founded about 1107, points to the identification of Lady Agnes de Valognes as Agnes, sister of Payn and Eustace fitz John and widow of Roger de Valognes d. 1141 of Benington, Herts., and mother of his sons and heirs, Peter d.s.p.1158, and Robert d.1184. Because the gift is made with the assent of Robert, the charter would appear to date after the death of her eldest son in 1158 and probably after 1163 when the Essex family lost its vast fortune. Agnes was trying to provide for a younger daughter of the family. I would also suspect that the interpretation of the word 'niece' is derived from the Latin neptis, which was also used to mean granddaughter.
.................
'Taking the Valognes links into consideration, a reasonable conclusion is that Cecilia was the daughter of Roger and Agnes de Valognes. This would suggest that Gunnor has been misidentified as the daughter of Robert de Essex by Keats-Rohan in DD 451, but was actually the daughter of Henry and Cecilia de Essex, as well as the sister of Agnes, wife of Aubrey de Vere. Onomastically it is a good match - Agnes the first born daughter was named for Cecily's mother and Gunnor the second daughter was name[d for Henry's mother.'[9]

Cecily de Valognes1,2

F, #10616, d. before 1186
FatherRoger de Valognes of Bennington, co. Herts2,3 d. c 1142
MotherAgnes fitz John2 d. a 1184
ReferenceGAV24 EDV24
Last Edited14 May 2020
     Cecily de Valognes married Henry de Essex Lord of Rayleigh and Haughley, son of Robert Fitz Suein of Essex and Gunnor le Bigod.4,2,1
Cecily de Valognes died before 1186.1
     ; Cecily de Valoins[5] - or Cicely[5], as to her identification as a daughter of Roger de Valoins and Agnes fitz John, Rosie Bevan wrote: 'About the identity of Cecily, abstracts of charters in the PRO point to further Valognes links.
PRO E 40/3699
Grant by Agnes de Waloniis, to Gunnora de Essex', her niece and foster child, of all the land and fee which she holds of the bishopric of Ely and of Roger de Thorn, viz. Westley, Fulburn and Feversam, which William Delmaneir holds, and the land called 'the land of the small hall;' to be held by the service of two knights, which the said William will perform, and a sparrowhawk yearly. (Twelfth Century)
PRO E 40/3958
Grant by Peter, the prior, and the convent of Binham, to Gunnora de Estsexia, for her life, or until she takes the veil, of land in Westleia granted to them, in frank almoin, by Lady Agnes de Valoniis, and Robert de Valoniis, her son. Witnesses:- John, the chaplain of the countess, Robert de Ver, Geoffrey de berleia, and others (named): Camb. Twelfth century. The grant by the prior of the convent of Binham, Norfolk, which Peter de Valognes founded about 1107, points to the identification of Lady Agnes de Valognes as Agnes, sister of Payn and Eustace fitz John and widow of Roger de Valognes d. 1141 of Benington, Herts., and mother of his sons and heirs, Peter d.s.p.1158, and Robert d.1184. Because the gift is made with the assent of Robert, the charter would appear to date after the death of her eldest son in 1158 and probably after 1163 when the Essex family lost its vast fortune. Agnes was trying to provide for a younger daughter of the family. I would also suspect that the interpretation of the word 'niece' is derived from the Latin neptis, which was also used to mean granddaughter.
.................
'Taking the Valognes links into consideration, a reasonable conclusion is that Cecilia was the daughter of Roger and Agnes de Valognes. This would suggest that Gunnor has been misidentified as the daughter of Robert de Essex by Keats-Rohan in DD 451, but was actually the daughter of Henry and Cecilia de Essex, as well as the sister of Agnes, wife of Aubrey de Vere. Onomastically it is a good match - Agnes the first born daughter was named for Cecily's mother and Gunnor the second daughter was name[d for Henry's mother.'[9]

re: her husband, Henry of Essex:

of Raleigh and Haughley, co. Essex

supporter of King Stephen:
'...H. de Essex' ...', witness to Stephen's confirmation of gift by William de Warenne

'...the King's constable....'
' He forfeited his vast estates in 1163, when he was defeated in single combat by Robert de Montfort, who had accused him of treason...'
