Text: I don't have the facsimile for this page and am working blind on this
particular entry. However I would just like to make the point that the
entries date from about 850 AD to 1450 AD, so chronologically could include
an earlier Waldeve if that was your reasoning. The reference is v.13, p.102,
but it does appear to be a discrete family group. The problem is defining
whether the entries refer to people who are alive or dead. Customarily the
liber vitae was supposed to contain the names of people who had died, but
this particular one does not appear to work on that basis.
Peter Sutton has kindly provided me with the following information from The
Scots Peerage, edited by Sir James Balfour (1907) relating to the Earldom of
This appears to be refering to Gospatric 2nd Earl of Dunbar (died before 16
August 1139. His wife may have been called Sibilla (Liber Vitae
Dunhelm,102) although there is apparently evidence that Sibilla was the wife
of the Earl's son Edward.
Gospatric's eldest son, who succeeded to the Earldom was Gospatric. 2nd son
was Adam first called Waldeve but who for some reason, perhaps a religious
one, changed his name.
Edward was the third son. He held lands in Edlington, Hedgley, Harehope and
others in Northumberland. His wife was Sibilla. He had a son Waldeve,
Waldeve apparently had a son John who died not long before 1247.
Edgar was Gospatric's fourth son. He was married to Aliz, daughter of Ivo,
son of Forne. He had two sons Alexander, who died without issue and
Gospatric also had a daughter Juliana who was given in marriage by King
Henry I to Ralph de Merley, Lord of Morpeth.
From the above it would seems that the group is defined thus
