"Two of Adam de Aldithley's grandsons were said to have married Saxon heiresses. His elder son, Lydulph, had a son, Adam, to whom a Saxon thane gave his only daughter and heir, Mabella, in marriage, and it was thus that he acquired in his wife's right, the Manors of Stanleigh and Balterley in Staffordshire.

"Two of Adam de Aldithley's grandsons were said to have married Saxon heiresses.... The younger son of Adam de Aldithley, named Adam, had a son, William, to whom another Saxon thane gave his only daughter, Joan [Stanley], and with her as a marriage portion, the Manor of Talk on the Hill in Staffordshire. Later, Adam, the son of Lydulph, exchanged his Manor of Stanleigh and half the Manor of Balterley, with his cousin, William (the son of his uncle, Adam), for the Manor of Talk on the Hill. William, then being possessed of the Manor of Stanleigh, adopted the surname 'de Stanleigh', and became the ancestor of the Stanleys, while his cousin, Adam de Aldithley, was the ancestor of the Audleys of Heleigh in Staffordshire.

"In fact, however, Lydulph (or Liulf), styled 'de Aldithley', was born circa 1115 - some years after the Conquest. His younger brother Adam was born circa 1125. The Manor of Aldithley (Audley) is not situated in Normandy, but is near Newcastle-under-Lyme in Staffordshire (as are the Manors of Balterley and Talk on the Hill). These three Manors did not come into the possession of the Audleys until early in the 12th century when they were held by socage, i.e. military service, from the De Verdun family. There is no evidence to support the story that these Manors were acquired through marriage to Saxon heiresses, and the Manor of Stanleigh did not come into the possession of the Audleys until late in the 12th century when it was the gift of their Overlord, Bertram de Verdun, before he left England for the Crusades in 1190."

Research Notes: Child - Adam de Aldithley of Stanlegh

From http://cybergata.com/roots/8089.htm :

~Cokayne's Complete Peerage, 2nd Edition, (Stanley), Vol. XIIA, p. 246, Adam de Stanley, of Stanley, in Leek Staffordshire, which he held from Liulf de Audley, and was living during the reign of Stephen.

Background Information.
The Stanleys who succeeded to Hooton are known to be a younger branch of the houseof Audley, descended from Adam de Stanlegh, brother of Lydulph (or Lyulph) de Audley, who assumed the local name of a township in Staffordshire, afterwards granted to his son William.
~Ormerod's History of Cheshire, Vol. II, pg. 411 713

~Cokayne's Complete Peerage says it is possible, but that there is no evidence to support any blood relationship between the the Audley or Stanley families. Most likely the Stanleys were tenants of the Audleys.

Excerpted from The House of Stanley from the 12th Century

"Adam de Aldithley played a prominent part in the retinue of Bertram de Verdun and acted as his Deputy when Bertram was Sheriff of Warwickshire and Leicestershire from 1168 to 1183. He succeeded Bertram as Sheriff of these two counties in 1184 and 1185, and acted as his Deputy in Cheshire in 1186. In 1190 Bertram de Verdun accompanied King Richard I to the Crusades in the Holy Land. Before leaving England, he granted to Adam de Aldithley the additional Manor of Stanleigh in Staffordshire, as a mark of his special favour. Bertram did not return to England, dying in Juppa in 1192. He was succeeded to his estates in England by his son, Nicholas de Verdun. Some time later, Adam de Aldithley took the opportunity to rearrange his estates by exchanging his new Manor of Stanleigh, and half of the Manor of Balterley, with his cousin William, the son of his uncle, Adam (later styled 'de Stanleigh') for William's Manor of Talk on the Hill (which adjoined Aldithley). His cousin, William, being possessed of the Manor of Stanleigh then adopted the surname of 'de Stanleigh', being the first member of the family appearing in records using a surname when he witnessed a Charter in 1203, and again in 1217 and 1223 as 'William de Stanle'. Thus William was the first Ancestor of the Stanley family.

"The Manor of Stanleigh (Stanley) is situated about five miles from Leek in Staffordshire. At the time of the Great Survey in 1086, it was part of the larger Manor of Endor (which later became part of the De Verdun estates). It did not come into the possession of the De Aldithley family until late in the 12th century, when it was gift to Adam de Aldithley from his Overlord, Bertram de Verdun before the latter left with Richard 1 for the Crusades in 1190.

"Both Aldithley and Stanleigh were Saxon place names - the former meaning a meadow belonging to And (a Saxon female name), and the latter meaning a meadow or clearing which was craggy or stony. Because of this, Sir Anthony Wagner, Garter King of Arms, suggested in his book English Ancestry, that the Audleys and Stanleys were probably of Saxon stock. Mr L. G. Pine, former editor of Burke's Peerage, held a similar view. Surnames, however, first appeared in Europe in the 11th century and were not introduced into England until the arrival of the Normans. They were still rare at the time of the Conquest and only the more important barons possessed them at the time of the Great Survey in 1086. These surnames were generally derived from their estates in Normandy. It was not until the 12th century that the minor barons and knights adopted surnames and it is therefore unlikely that the early Aldithleys or Stanleys possessed a surname during their actual lifetime. These were probably added later by their descendants as a means of identification of an ancestor."

Adam de Aldithley was probably given the name Adam Stanleigh posthumously after his son William acquired the Manor of Stanley.

Research Notes: Husband - Warin Domfront de Alençon Lord de Nogent

From http://cybergata.com/roots/1829.htm :
-Turton's "Plantaganet Ancestry", shows Warin and Melisinde as parents of GEOFFREY II, VC DE CHATEAUDUN.

-Stuart's "Royalty For Commoners (249:31), calls him Warin de Belleme (de Domfront), Seigneur de Domfront and son of WILLIAM & MATILDA. Stuart, however shows different parents for GEOFFREY.

-Turton's "Plantaganet Ancestry", has two individuals 0n p.179 - Warine d'Alcenon and Guerin de Domfort, which are apparently, in fact, the same. Stuart is infering that Turton is in error in making him the father of GEOFFREY II [ called GEOFFREY I by Turton], VC DE CATEAUDUN. Both Stuart and Turton agree that he was father of Adeline.

Research Notes: Husband - Gudrød "the Hunter" Halfdansson King of Vestfold [Semi-legendary]

From Wikipedia - Gudrød the Hunter :

Gudrød the Hunter (Old Norse : Guðr veiðikonungr, Norwegian: Gudrød Veidekonge) was a semi-legendary king in south-east Norway , during the early Viking Age . He is mentioned in the skaldic poem Ynglingatal . Snorri Sturluson elaborates on Gudrød's story in Heimskringla , written c. 1230; however, this is not considered to be a historical account by modern historians. The following account is taken from Heimskringla.
Gudrød was the son of Halfdan the Mild of the House of Yngling and Liv Dagsdotter of Vestmar . He married Alfhild, a daughter of Alfarin the king of Alfheim (Bohuslän ), which was the name of the area between Glomma and Göta älv , and inherited half the province of Vingulmark . They had a son, Olaf Gudrødsson .

When Alfhild died, Gudrød sent his warriors to Agder and its king, Harald, to propose a marriage with his daughter Åsa . However, Harald Granraude declined, so Gudrød decided to take his daughter by force.

They arrived at night. When Harald realised that he was being attacked, he assembled his men and fought well, but died together with his son Gyrd. Gudrød carried away Åsa and married her. He raped her and she gave him a son named Halfdan who would be called Halfdan the Black .

In the fall, when Halfdan was a year old, Gudrød was having at a feast in Stiflesund . He was very drunk and in the evening, as he was walking on the gangway to leave the ship, an assassin thrust a spear through Gudrød, killing him. Gudrød's men instantly killed the assassin, who turned out to be Åsa's page-boy. Åsa admitted that the page-boy had acted on her behalf.


Research Notes: Child - Olaf Geirstad-Alf Gudrødsson King of Jutland and Vestfold [Legendary]

Legendary Norwegian king, of the House of Yngling.

From Wikipedia - Olaf Geirstad-Alf :

Olaf Gudrødsson, or as he was named after his death Olaf Geirstad-Alf, was a legendary Norwegian king of the House of Yngling from the Ynglinga saga . He was the son of Gudrød the Hunter and the brother of Halfdan the Black . Gudrød and Olaf conquered a large part of Raumarike .

Gudrød died when Olaf was twenty years old and he and Halfdan divided their kingdom between them. Olaf took the southern part and resided in Geirstad. They only inherited Vestfold because Alfgeir took Vingulmark for himself and made his son Gandalf Alfgeirsson its king.

The Ynglinga saga relates that Olaf was a skillful man and a great warrior. He was also handsome, big and strong. He was the father of Ragnvald the Mountain-High .

During the reigns of Olaf and Halfdan the Black, Värmland started to pay tribute to the Swedish king Erik Anundsson instead.

He died of illness. Tjodolf of Hvin sang about him:
Long while this branch of Odin's stem
Was the stout prop of Norway's realm;
Long while King Olaf with just pride
Ruled over Westfold far and wide.
At length by cruel gout oppressed,
The good King Olaf sank to rest:
His body now lies under ground,
Buried at Geirstad, in the mound.

After his death, he was worshipped as an elf , and was called the Geirstad-alf (the "elf of Geirstad").

A hypothesis identifies Geirstad with Gjerstad near Gokstad, and his burial with the Gokstad Ship .
