But--Dave Greene (in "The Royal Ancestry of the Ipswich (Massachusetts)
and Long Island Lawrence Families," _The Genealogist_ 10 [1989--printed
1994], 3-29) isn't the first to have engaged the disputed paternity of
Adelaide's daughter Judith. He cites a discussion in Catherine Morton
and Hope Mutz, ed., _Carmen de Hastingae Proelio_ (Oxford, 1972),
126-28, which argues for paternity by Enguerrand of Ponthieu, and
against any marriage at all between Adeliza and Lambert of Lens.
