Baldwin Fitzgilbert Seigneur Of Meules

  • Born: Abt 1022, Meules, Normandy, France
  • Christened: Okehampton, Devonshire, England
  • Died: 1090 about age 68

  General Notes:

When Count William of Eu died shortly before 1040, Gilbert, Count de Brionne, assumed the land and title, but he was assassinated in 1040 and his young sons, Richard and Baldwin, were forced to flee Normandy, finding safety at the court of Baldwin V, Count of Flanders.

When William the Conqueror married Count Baldwin's daughter, he restored Gilbert's sons to Normandy, although he did not invest them with either Brionne or Eu or a comital title. William granted the lordships of Bienfaite and Orbec to Richard fitz Gilbert, and Le Sap and Meules to Baldwin. While Gilbert's descendants later pressed a claim for Brionne, it was never restored.
