Nicholas DE STUTEVILLE Lord of Liddel 593,800,7069,7070
- Born: Abt 1142, Cottingham, East Riding Yorkshire, England 800
- Married (2): After 1191 7069
- Died: Before 30 Mar 1218, Liddel Castle, Newcastleton, Liddesdale, Scotland 800
Following Turton, I originally had Nicholas as son of William & Bertha Glanville, but Rosie indicates that Nicholas was a younger brother & heir to William's son Robert. Also Rosie places the Robert de Stuteville who married Sibyl de Valognes as a son of Nicholas, which is a very different place than Turton places him; Turton has Robert & Sibyl Valognes as parents of William, making that Robert grandfather of Nicholas rather than Nicholas's son. I am following many people on World Connect, in making Nicholas II a son of Nicholas by his 2nd wife, which does not agree with Rosie's information below, having both Robert & Nicholas being sons of an unknown 1st wife.
The following is excerpted from a post to SGM, 7 Sep 2002, by Rosie Bevan:

4. NICHOLAS de Stuteville of Liddel. In 1174 he was in possession of Liddel, Cumberland when the castle was captured by William the Lion. In 1205 he made a fine of 10,000 marks for having his inheritance of everything William, his brother, held, except Knaresborough castle and Boroughbridge which was kept in the king's hands until the fine was paid. It was never paid and those properties passed from the Stuteville family. Nicholas married as his second wife Gunnora, sister and coheir of Ralph d'Aubigny, widow of Gilbert de Gant (d.1191). Gunnora's father was Ralph d'Aubigny, the elder, younger brother of William d'Aubigny 'Brito' of Belvoir. In 1197 a fine was made recognising their right to 15 knights' fees in Auborn and Binbrook, Lincs. and North Dalton, Upper and Lower Naburn, Yorks. as Gunnor's inheritance. An unknown first wife was mother of his sons Robert and Nicholas. Their relationship is established in a charter of notification by four witnesses who stated they were present when Nicholas de Stuteville and his sons, Robert and Nicholas, bound themselves to give 100s rent to Kedholme priory. Nicholas is presumed to be one of the confederate barons who met at Stamford at Easter 1216, captured at Lincoln on 20 May 1217 and dead by 30 March 1218.
- Robert V. Married Sibyl, daughter of Philip Valoignes, who 1192-1205 gave him and Sibyl and the heirs of their bodies the vill of Torpenhow, Cumberland. In the lifetime of his father he received a knight's fee in Middleton which he was holding early in the thirteenth century. He was benefactor of Rosedale priory. He died v.p.before 27 Nov 1213 when Nicholas Stuteville was ordered to deliver Eustace, son and heir of Robert, to Saer, Earl of Winchester. Saer gave the custody of Eustace to his son Roger. Eustace was married to Nichola but died s.p. shortly before 18 Oct 1241 on crusade, and seisin of his lands was ordered to be given to Joan, wife of Hugh Wake.
- Nicholas II. See below.
