Keats-Rohan's, "Domesday Descendants" says:
"Gaufrid Haget was the son of Bertram I Haget and brother of Bertram II, both of whom he had succeeded by c.1165/71. Married Alice, daughter of William of Friston, by whom he had issue Geoffrey (d.v.p.), Ralph, abbot of Fountains (1170-90), Agnes wife of Alan fitz Brien of Bedale, Gundreda, Alice, wife of Jordan de St. Mary, Lucy, wife of Peter fitz Toret."
A discussion of gifts by Gundreda Haget and others to Fountains abbey, ends with the statement (re: Add. MS. 18276, f. 228d) that,
'At an earlier date Matthew de Brame had released to Geoffrey Haget all claim to the inheritance of Geoffrey Haget, uncle of the said Geoffrey.' [EYC, 1: 403, no. 520]
This infers a relationship between the two Geoffrey Hagets as uncle and nephew. Confirmation of this is found in a charter for Gundreda Haget's gift to Sinningthwaite of the advowson of the church of Bilton, Yorks., in which she refers to Bertram Haget as her father. It is therefore clear that Gundreda Haget and her siblings were children of Bertram II Haget, not of his brother Geoffrey.
