I join with Peter, Rosie and the rest in acknowledging your very
significant find and post. The document you found places the last piece in
the puzzle, and makes the identification of Ida de Tosny [or de Tony] as
mother of William Longespee a matter of fact.
Not only that, but it also gives Chris Phillips something else to add to
his CP Corrections page.........;)
Good luck, and good continued hunting.
