This placement of Sibyl de Valoines is sound if unproven. We
certainly know Philip de Valoines (d. 1215) had a daughter Sibyl,
called 'Sibille filie mee' in his charter granting Torpenhow to her
and her husband Robert de Stuteville [Reg. de Panmure II:124]. Bssed
on the witnesses, this charter can be dated ca 1195 x 7 Aug 1205.
Eustace de Stuteville (dsp bef 18 Oct 1241) was Sibyl's son and heir.
There was another Valoines sibling: Cecily, wife of Henry de
Essex, sheriff of Essex (d. 1163 or later), by whom she was the
ancestress of the de Vere Earls of Oxford &c. Cecily's daughter
Gunnora de Essex was evidently called 'neptis mee' or similar in a
charter of Agnes de Valoines, interpreted as niece until Rosie Bevan
corrected this in 2003 [R. Bevan, <Re: Essex/Valognes/Fitz John>,
SGM, 18 Apr 2003].
