In various [secondary] sources the mother of Elizabeth, illegitimate daughter
of Henry I, is given as Nesta, daughter of Rhys Ap Tewdyr ( d. 1093)
&Gwladus, and wife of Gerald of Windsor.

These source also give a brother for Elizabeth, Henry FitzHenry (1105-1157).

I am surprised no-one has mentioned this in the recent correspondence as this
seems to be a fairly widely spread fact/fiction (See the archives at
www.deja.com).
