From Learned Cousin.....~m



Eustace Fitz John did marry a second time after his first wife died in
childbirth.

His second wife was a daughter of William Fitz Neel (Nigel),
Baron of Halton, in the palatinate of Chester and Constable of Chester.

Both Cokayne and Burke Complete Peerages show her name as Agnes,
not Matilda. After the death of Eustace in July 1157, Agnes married
Robert Fitz Count, illegit. son of an Earl of Chester, who became
Constable of Chester jure uxoris and d. bef. 1166.
