I don't know whether or not this is the pedigree that Doug was
thinking of, but the Chronicle of the Canons of Huntingdon makes
Judith a daughter of Lambert [see Anderson's "Early Sources of
Scottish History" vol. 2, p. 28]. The only other reference to Lambert
mentioned by Anderson was the item from the Life of Waltheof already
mentioned, which also made Judith a daughter of Lambert. The index to
Anderson's work (not compiled by the author) states that Judith was a
daughter of Odo of Champagne, but I do not find this stated anywhere
in the body of the book, so it is an apparent slip by the indexer.
Enguerrand does not even appear in the index.
