This page is still being researched. It has NOT yet been launched formally into the Database but is shown here TEMPORARILY (albeit for an uncertain length of time pending further research), partly to record connections that we fear we might otherwise lose sight of and partly in the hope that one or more visitors to the site will contribute information that will enable us to develop our information on the families covered in this page to a standard that would support release of a dedicated page in the Database.

We have had problems with the Dunstanvilles, having been led astray in the past by various web sites which appear to have confused different people of that name. The following was orginally produced from data found in various web sites. Using Vivian has provided more 'cohesion' but we are not yet convinced on its reliability and, to avoid losing sight of potentially-important information, have had to resort to speculation.
Hugo de Dunstanville
1. Reginald de Dunstanville (d 1124)
  m. Adelisa de Insula (heir of Humphry de Insula)
  A. Reginald de Dunstanville of Castle Combe (d 1154-5)
  Some web sites confuse this Reginald with his father (omitting one of the generations) whilst others confuse him with Reginald de Dunstanvile (d 1175), an illegitimate son of King Henry I, with whom there does seem to have been a family connection through a marriage in the next generation. We have changed our mind a few times (not least because of uncertainty on the dates) on whether or not this was the Reginald who married Alice de Warrene. Provisionally, we have gone back to that view, which is supported by Vivian (who gave Reginald's date of death), and so show that his wife was indeed ...
m. Adelisa/Alice de Warren (d 1157, dau of Reingald, 2nd Earl Warren)
  We are now going to speculate!! We have seen every possible combination of Reginald having one or two sons, Walter & Alan, one or both of whom married a daughter (Isabell or Ursula) of Reginald FitzHenry de Dunstanville, natural son of King Henry I, one or both of whom had a daughter (Alice or Cecilia) who married a Basset (either Thomas of Headington or William of Ippesden and/or Tehidy). Provisionally, we accommodate these views as follows ...
  i/ii. Walter de Dunstanville of Castle Combe not mentioned by Vivian
m. Ursula de Dunstanville (dau/coheir of Reginald FitzHenry de Dunstanville, Earl of Cornwall, illegitimate son of King Henry I)
  a. Alice de Dunstanville (d 1186) HY
  m. Thomas Basset of Headington (b c1099, d c1182) HY
  ii/i. Alan de Dunstanville identified by Vivian as of Castle Combe, identified by some web sites as of Tehidy
  Vivian identifies Alan's wife as Isabell, dau of Reginald FitzHenry, natural son of Henry I. Provisionally, we follow those web sites which identify his wife as ...
  m. Emma de Langetot
  a. Cecilia de Dunstanville
  m. William Basset of Ippesden & Tehidy
  B. Gundred de Dunstanville some web sites show a Gundred as of this generation

References to the following family in some web sites use "Graeme" as the family name whilst Commoners, which mentions that the family is "presumed to be of Scottish origin", shows a coat of arms for the family which appears to be that of the early Grahams of Montrose (undifferenced!). However, Commoners shows the name of the family as Greame and this is supported by BLG1886 (Yarburgh of Heslington) & BP1934 (Deramore), both of which show Heslington passing through this family.
