Le Bateman asked is there proof that Maldred son of Dolfin married a
de Stuteville?

Clay has shown it is very probable that Meldred married a sister of
Roger de Stuteville of Warwickshire, based on a law suit in which
Meldred's son Robert attempted to recover lands he inherited from
his mother [1]. She may have been named Johanna [2]. Roger was a son
of John (d. probably c.1184) son of Robert II de Stuteville [1,3]
