   General Notes:


Kings and Queens of Great Britain, Genealogical Chart, Anne Taute and Romilly Squire, Taute, 1990: "Henry Earl of Huntingdon & Northumberland, Mar Ada Daughter of William De Warenne Earl of Surrey."

The Political History of England, Vol II, George Burton Adams Longmans Green and Co, 1905, Ch I, p54:
[1074] "...If we could trust the chroniclers, we should be able to make out in addition a considerable list of earldoms which William had established by this date or soon afterwards, in many parts of England, and in these were other great names...Shrewsbury was held by Roger of Montgomery; Chester by Hugh of Avranches, the second earl; Surrey by William of Warenne..."
p127: [1101] "Though the great Norman barons stood aloof from him- Robert of Belleme and his two brothers Roger and Arnulf, William of Warenne, Walter Giffard, and Ivo of Grantmesnil, with others- Henry was stronger in England than Robert..."
p129: [1102] "Robert sent home at once a part of his army, but he himself remained in England long enough to witness in some cases the execution by his brother of the provision of the treaty concerning traitors. He took with him, on his return to Normandy, Orderic Vitalis says, William of Warenne and many others disinherited for his sake..."
p138: [1104] "...Already in the year before Robert had been forced to surrender the pension Henry had promised him in the treaty which they had made after Robert's invasion. This was because of a rash visit he had paid to England without permission, at the request of William of Warenne, to intercede for the restoration of his earldom of Surrey..."

Draper Gedcom
William de Warenne was the second Earl of Warren and Surrey. In 1093 he
sought to marry Mathilda (who eventually married King Henry I of
England). This marriage may have been at the bottom of his hatred for
Henry. In 1101 he shared in inviting Robert, Duke of Normandy, to invade
England and because of this act, the king deprived him of his estates.
Later Henry restored William to his former position and from that time
on, William was the king's faithful supporter and trusted friend.
William died in 1138. His wife was Isabel Vermandois, by whom he had
William (third Earl of Surrey), Reginald, Ralph, Gundred, and Ada (who
married Henry, earl of Huntingdon, and whose daughter Margaret married
Henry de Bohun).
