[Sir Bernard Burke, Dormant, Abeyant, Forfeited, and Extinct Peerages, Burke's Peerage, Ltd., London, 1883, p. 3, Albini, Earls of Arundel]NOTE: "His lordship left by Adeliza, his wife, widow of King Henry I, four sons and three daughters, theeldest of whom, Alice, m.

The eldest son, William de Albini, 2nd earl, had a grant from the crown, 23rd Henry II [1177-78], of the Earldomof Sussex, and in the 1st of Richard I [1189-90], had a confirmation from thatprince of the castle and honour of Arundel, as also of the Tertium Denarium ofthe county of Sussex. He d. in 1196 and was s. by his son, William de Albini, 3rd earl...[who] m. Maud, dau. and heiress of James de St. Hillary." [Sir Bernard Burke, Dormant, Abeyant, Forfeited, and Extinct Peerages, Burke's Peerage, Ltd., London, 1883, p. 3, Albini, Earls of Arundel]All other sources that I've found say that the William who m. Maud de St. Hillary was the son of William, the 1st Earl, and Adeliza. I have, thus, compressed this pedigree by omitting theintervening William who Burke styles 2nd earl.
