Are you perhaps using an older version of AR? AR7 reads slightlt differently:

"Nesta m. Bernard de Neufmarche, d.1093, Lord of Brecon, son of Geofrey
(son of Thurcytel) by Ada, dau. of Richard Fitz Gulbert, seigneur de
Hugleville and Auffay in Normandy, seen 1025-1053 (s. Gulbert de St.
Valerie, seen 1011, advocate of St. Valerie, protector of the monestery of
Fecamp), by N., said to be Papia, illeg. dau. Richard I"the Fearless"
(121-E20), d.996, Duke of Normandy (CP I 22, VI 452-453)" other sources
also cited.

Hope this helps.
