Families covered: Peverel of Broun (Brunne), Peverel of Nottingham
[Much of this page was previously within PZmisc01 where William of Nottingham and Pagan/Pain were shown as brothers albeit with the caveat by TCP reported just below. Ironically, a review of the family using Baker (p139) led us to be clearer that we should not follow his lead on showing them as half-brothers.]

                               
Ranulph de Peverel & Maud are reported on various websites to have been parents of both William of Nottingham and Payn below. Baker (p139) shows Maud as mother of Hamon, William of Dover & Pagan/Pain by Ranulph Peverel but of William of Nottingham by William the Conqueror. However, TCP (vol iv, Appendix I, 'Peverel of Nottingham') reports that little is known of William the elder (of Nottingham) except that he had a brother Robert. It discounts reports that William may have been an illegitimate son of William the Conqueror ("as this statement cannot be traced frther back than to the time of the Tudors, it is worth little or nothing") but otherwise shows no clues as to his parentage. We are now more consistent with that cautious approach and so separate the families of William of Nottingham and Pagan/Pain as follows, starting with William of Nottingham who is believed to have a brother Robert whom we both shows as sons of ...
?? de Peverel
1. William de Peverel of Nottingham Castle (d 27.04.1113)
TCP focuses on the family of Peverel of Nottingham but reports that little is known of William the elder except that he had a brother Robert. It discounts reports that William may have been an illegitimate son of William the Conqueror but otherwise shows no clues as to his parentage.

Ranulph de Peverel of Hatfield (Peverel) etc., Essex
m. Maud (dau of Ingelric "a saxon")
Baker (p269) starts with Pagan and, as indicated above, identifies him as half-brother of William of Nottingham. His elder brothers are shown by Baker (p139).
1. Hamon Peverel of Whittington etc, Salop
  m. Sybil (dau/coheir of Gerard de Towmay)
2. William Peverel, Governor of Dover
  m. Adeliza (dau/coheir of Gerard de Towmay)
3. Pagan or Pain (or Payn) Peverel of Bourn or Brunne (Cambridgeshire) & Braunston (Northamptonshire)
  TCP (Pecche) and TCP (Winchester) identify Alice's and Aseciline's father as Robert but 'MedieGen' confirms that his name normally appears as Pagan or Payn. We suspect that naming him Robert was a result of confusing him with the brother of William of Nottingham (see above).
