  • Notes 
    • Earl of Devon

      Baldwin de Redvers was founder of Bremer Abbey, County Wilts, and Quarr Abbey, County Hants. In April, 1136, there were rumors of the death of King Stephen, and on hearing this he was one of the first to break out in revolt. Seizing the royal castle of Exeter, he sustained a long siege by the King, and was ultimately allowed to withdraw his forces on giving up the castle. The King then proceeded to the Isle of Wight, took possession of the island, and drove him, with his wife and children, into exile. Baldwin then took refuge at the court of the Count of Anjou, and soon afterwards conducted a successful raid into Normandy. About Lent, 1138, he was taken prisoner in Normandy by Enguerrard de Say, a partisan of King Stephen. He returned to England in the autumn of 1139, shortly before the arrival of the Empress Maud, and landing at Warham, seized the castle of Corfe. This he defended successfully against the King, forcing him to eventually raise the siege. By the Empress Maud. (daughter of Henry I and mother of Henry II) he was created Earl of Devonshire in the year 1141. He married 1st Adeliza, 2nd Lucia. His daughter Eve married Anchitel Grey.
