9 Robert, Count of Mortain, in the Avranches, a younger son of Herleva, mother of the Conqueror, by her husband Herlwine de Conteville. He took part in the battle of Hastings, and had assigned to him (with other immense possessions in various parts of the kingdom) the manor of Pevensey, where he, with the Duke and the army had first set foot in England. He was also made official Earl of Cornwall, of which county nearly the whole was given to him. For conspiring, in 1088, with his brother Odo, Bishop of Bayeux, to depose William Rufus, he was banished and his vast domains forfeited. He died in 1090, and was buried in the abbey of Grestain, founded by his father, and which he

himself had endowed with lands in England. His wife was Matilda, daughter of Roger de Montgomery, and sister of Roger the Poictevin, the Yorkshire tenant in capite, by whom he had, with three daughters, an only son, William, second Earl of Cornwall and Count of Mortain, to whom his lands, or the greater part of them, were restored. The oft mentioned Nigel (Fossard) and Richard (de Surdeval) were holding here between them nearly all the Count's manors in Yorkshire. (Yorks. Arch. and Top. Journal, IV., 127 and V., 314, 322.)
