Seems some doubt as to whether Robert d Insula?s wife was the daughter or widow of Richard de Cormeilles.
As for the supposed marriage of a Robert de Insula to Beatrice de Cormeilles, daughter of Robert the chamberlain - the only reason that anyone thought such a marriage had taken place was a garbled account from the late 13th century stating that a Robert de Insula had lands in Wilbraham in
marriage with a daughter of Niel, Robert's son. But contemporary evidence shows that it was Ralph the dapifer who was given land in Wilbraham with his wife. Chronologically, it seems likely that this wife was a daughter of Robert.
