WILLIAM LOVEL (Lupellus), brotherand heir [of Waleran d'Ivry, who gave his English lands to William and died about 1177]. He joined the rebellion of his brother-in-law Waleran, Count of Meulan, in 1123, and took part in the unsuccessful attempt to relieve the castle ofVatteville in March 1124, but shortly after escaped from the battle of Bourgthéroulde, where the rebels were defeated. Later in the same year he made his peace with the King, and thereafter received considerable grants of land in England. A writ of Geoffrey, Duke of Normandy, is addressed to him between 1144 and 1150, and in 1150-1151 he witnessed at Rouen the charter of Henry, Duke of Normandy, for the town of Rouen. In 1153 his lands in Normandy and, those of his brother, Roger le Bègue, were overrun, and laid waste by Simon de Montfort, Count of Evreux. At some time before 1162 he, with his wife and son Waleran, gave to the abbey of Haute-Bruyère three modii of meal from the mills of his castle of Ivry.

He married Maud, daughter of Robert, and sister of Waleran, COUNT OF MEULAN, and sister also of Robert, EARL OF LEICESTER. He was living in 1166, butdead in 1170. His widow was living in 1189. [Complete Peerage VIII:211-2, XIV:454, (transcribed by Dave Utzinger)]
