A footnote to The Normans of South Wales, 1070-1171,
referring to Eyton's work, seems to confirm that there was,
in fact, a Hugh, son of Warin.
12 Eyton, Antiquities of Shropshire, VII, 205-206. Eyton
holds that Rainault was merely exercising the post during
the minority of Warin's son, Hugh, to whom Rainault
transferred the office and its lands sometime after 1102.
Regardless, my questions stand.
