          Text: TAILLEBOIS, BEATRIX: Daughter of Ivo Taillebois (q.v.) and his unknown
          first wife. Clay thought Beatrice was probably illegitimate (EYC, v,
          291), because none of Ivo's property passed to Ribald with his wife
          Beatrice. Ivo's second wife Lucy was an important heiress whose
          inheritance formed the basis of the land Ivo held in Domesday Book This
          fief, the honour of Bolingbroke, was inherited by the two sons of
          Lucy's subsequent marriages, whereas Ivo's own barony of Kendal,
          granted after 1086 went (possibly) to Ketel son of Eldred and then to
          Ketel?s nephew William fitz Gilbert of Lancaster, surnamed Taillebois
          (Sanders, 56). In the late twelfth century the writer Peter of Blois
          claimed that Ivo had had a sole daughter, ?nobly married? Defective
          genealogies, in the Cockersand Cartulary and the Register of St Mary's
          York (Cockersand Cart., ii, pp. 305-8) made William a descendant of
          Eldred and Ivo Taillebois, who must have been father of Eldred's wife.
          Beatrice is known to have married Ribald, half-brother of the
          Conqueror's Breton cousin Count Alan before 1093; Monasticon
          Anglicanum. III, p. 553 no. xx. She was dead by c 1121 at the time of
          a gift to St Mary's by Ribald and their son Ralph Taillebois: Given
          that Ketel Fitz Eldred, his nephew William of Lancaster, and Ralph
          fitz Ribald, were all active c.1120, .just a few years before Ivo?s
          widow buried her third husband, one can conclude that Beatrice was a
          legitimate heir of Ivo by a wife previous to Lucy, who was Beatrice's
          contemporary, and that she was first the wife of the Englishman Eldred
          and subsequently the wife of Ribald. For the descendants of Beatrice
          and Ribald see Rev. H. C. Fitz Herbert An original pedigree ofTailbois
          and Neville', The Genealogist, ns iii, 31. Clay. Early Yorkshire
          Charters (1936), V, no. 358.

          Dr. Keats-Rohan's position is that Beatrice Taillebois, wife of Ribald
          of Brittany, was a legitimate daughter of Ives Taillebois. She states
          Beatrice was married previously to a certain Eldred, by which marriage
          she had a son and heir, Ketel Fitz Eldred, and a daughter, Godith
          (mother of William de Lancaster I). We know that Ketel Fitz Eldred was
          certainly kin of some nature to Ives Taillebois, as he confirmed the
          original grant of Ives Taillebois to St. Mary's, York which is
          mentioned above [Reference: William Farrer, Records relating to the
          Barony of Kendale, 1 (1924): 142]. Ketel Fitz Eldred's own grants to
          religious houses were confirmed by his nephew and heir, William de
          Lancaster I (also known as William Taillebois). William de Lancaster
          I's granddaughter and heiress, Hawise de Lancaster, in turn also
          confirmed the original grant of Ives Taillebois to St. Mary's, York
          mentioned above [Reference: William Farrer, Records relating to the
          Barony of Kendale, 1 (1924): 143].
