I have updated my database to reflect the status of the parentage of Alan's 1st wife (i.e., Richard [of Chester]). Looking forward to see if more details can be found for this individual.

I don't, but had assumed that Richardson would as he has supposedly
researched the subject since discovering this personage in Stringer's work.
However, he now says that he is taking my word for Richard's existence, so
apparently the due homework hasn't been done after all, yet again, again.
Richard de Chester was evidently the next eldest of Roger de Lacy's
brothers, as he witnessed before the two others at least twice.
One example can be found in _Facsimiles of Early Cheshire Charters_, edited
by Geoffrey Barraclough (1957), p. 18 - a charter of Roger from between 1200
& 1211: "ego Rogerus de Lasci, constabularius Cestrie...Hiis testibus:
Ricardo de Cestria, Eustachio de Cestria, Gaufrido de Cestria...".
