p328: "...Before the close of this year, 1176, Henry arranged for another marriage to provide for his youngest son John, now ten years old...The inheritance which his father had now in mind was that of the great Earl Robert ofGloucester, brother and supporter of the Empress Matilda, his father's mother. Robert's son William had only daughters. Of these two were already married, Mabel to Amaury, Count of Evreux, and Amice to Richard of Clare, Earl of Hertford. Henryundertook to provide for these by pensions on the understanding that all the lands of the earldom should go to John on his marriage with the youngest daughter Isabel. To this plan Earl William agreed. The marriage itself did not take place until after the death of King Henry."
