I noted after the post appeared that my pronoun usage left something to
be desired, so let me restate things.
Keats-Rohan has an entry in _Domesday Descendants_ for Letitia de
Malpas, sister and coheiress of Richard Mailant, both children of Robert
Fitz William. K-R also has an entry for Mailant, where she states that
Richard was son of Robert Fitz William, Domesday tennant of Hugh, earl
In her older _Domesday People_, Keats-Rohan has an entry for Robert Fitz
Hugh of Malpas, naming daughter Letitia. I could find no reference
there to Robert Fitz William of Malpas.
Thus the two books conflict. The question is whether the new one
represents a 'correction' of the old, or instead that a consistent error
has crept into the newer book.
