Walter de St. Martin (b c922)
1. William de Warrenne (b c950)
  m. dau of Ralph de Torta
  The above were found on a web site. TCP (Surrey) starts with ...
  A. Rodulf or Ralph de Warrenne (b c998, a 1074)
  m1. Beatrice (niece of Gunnor, Duchess of Normandy)
  i. Rudol de Warrenne
  ii. William de Warrenne, Earl of Warrenne, 1st Earl of Surrey (d 24.06.1088)§B
  m1. Gundred (d 27.05.1085, dau of Gerbhod of St. Omer)§T§
Gundred is identified by various sources (including BE1883) as daughter of William the Conqueror but this is strongly disputed by others. The connection shown here is somewhat controversial but was suggested in 1874 by J.R. Planché, whose excellent book on 'The Conqueror and his Companions' is available on a web site (see the relevant section on the 'Individuals' page). This treats Gundred as The Conqueror's step-daughter rather than a daughter of his own blood. It is queried by TCP (Surrey) which identifies her as sister of Gerbod the Fleming, Earl of Chester, but is not certain that their father was Gerbod of St. Omer and supports a source that apparently rejects the idea that her mother was Matilda of Flanders. The connection shown here for Gundred's ancestry may yet be removed.

  m2. (1164) Hamelin Plantagenet, 5th Earl of Surrey (b 1130, d 07.05.1202) HJY
  (2) Reginald de Warren
BE1883 notes that "Watson, in his History of the House of Warren, corroborated by Camden and Ormerod, make this Reginald to have m. Aldelia de Mowbray, and to have had a son, William, from whom he deduces the family of Warren, of Poynton" but neverthess shows him as married to Alice de Wirmgay with the following children. TCP identifies him as ancestor of the Warennes of Wormegay.

  b. Rainald / Reginald / Reynald de Warren
  Shown by some (including, initially, ourselves) as the Reginald who married Alice de Wirmgay (now shown above). TCP reports that Rainald succeeded his father in Flanders. The following comes from RHG (vol 2, 'Pedigree of De Burnham', p310).

  m2. Emma (a 1074)
  B. ?? Part of this family in a way that has not yet been confirmed was Roger de Mortimer. TCP dedicates an appendix (volume IX, Appendix A) to considering the relationship between Roger and William de Warrenne but is inconclusive other than to confirm that there was close kinsmanship.
  i. Roger de Mortimer, Sn de Mortemer-sur-Eulne (a 1054, d before 1086) GHJSY
