Families covered: Valence of Pembroke, de Valoniis (or Valoines or Valognes)

William de Valence, 'Earl of Pembroke' (b after 1225, d before 18.05.1296)
William's wife's mother was Joan Marshall, daughter of William, Earl of Pembroke. Although William was often referred to as 'Earl of Pembroke', and sometimes also as Earl of Wexford, TCP (Pembroke) reports that he was never actually created an Earl. However, BE1883 does identify him as an Earl.

We hope in due course to determine what connection if any existed between the following family and the Valoines of Orford Castle, etc..
Philip de Valoniis
1. ?? de Valoniis
  A. Philip de Valoniis or Valognes or Valoines of Panmure (a 1180)
  i. William de Valoniis of Panmure, Chamberlain of Scotland (d 1219)
  m. Lorretta de Quincy (dau of Saier de Quincy, 1st Earl of Winchester)
  a. Christian de Valoniis
  m. (before 1215) Peter de Maule (d 1254)
b. Lora de Valoniis

  c. daughter
  ii. Sybil de Valoniis
  m. Robert de Stuteville
  B. Roger de Valoniis of Easter Kilbride

  C. Robert de Valoniis or Valoines of Bennington, etc
  i. Gunnora de Valoniis
  m. Robert FitzWalter of Woodham Walter (d Damletta 1234)
Most probably connected to this family in some way not yet identified was a son who gave rise to the family of Torrie. The connection was certainly not through the above William or Roger, whose daughters were their heiresses, and probably not through the above Robert whose daughter's daughter Christian FitzWalter (Countess of Essex) included the above Christian and Lora amongst her heirs.
