following from P.121. and relating to Thomas, the 2nd son of Richard de
Clare, 6th Earl of Gloucester. Thomas's elder brother Gibert became the
7th Earl of Gloucester.
<Relating to Thomas's royal commission to conquer all he could in
"Soon after his landing he was himself conquered by the charms of
Julian, third daughter of Maurice, son of Maurice fitz Gerald, by
Emmeline, daughter and heir of Sir Stephen Longespee, a natural son of
Henry II and Rosamund Clifford".
According to G.T.Clark's book, it was Emmeline's <gd> not <d> who
married Thomas and linked to the House of Clare.
Thomas's children were John, Gibert, Richard, Thomas and two sisters.
