  Thanks to a contributor (JR, 16.01.17) for drawing our attention to 'The Gresleys of Drakelowe' (by Falconer Madan, 1899) in which (p17) is reported that "there is some reason for believing (Robert & Avice) to have had a younger son named Nigel de Stafford" and discounts reports that Nigel was a generation earlier.
  (2) Nigel de Stafford (b c1040, d c1115?)
The Gresleys of Drakelowe' shows this Nigel as father of William FitzNigel. However, Wikipedia ("Gresley Baronets") inserts another generation as follows.
  (A) Nigel de Stafford, later de Gresley of Gresley Castle
  (i) William FitzNigel de Gresley of Gresley (d c1166)
  m. Elena
  The Gresleys of Drakelowe' (p279) shows the following connection.
  (B) Nicholas FitzNigel de Longford (d by 1166)
  m. Margaret
  (i) Nigel de Bubinton or Longford (d 1170) ## see here ##
  m. Cecilia Hathersedge
There is clearly an overlap between what we show here and what is shown on Longford1. This will be investigated further in due course.
  (ii) Felicia
  m. Roger Duredent
  (iii)+ other issue (d 1166) - Simon, William
  (C) daughter
  c. Alice/Adelise de Toeni (b c1035) HJRY
  m. William FitzOsbern, 1st Earl of Hereford (b c1030, d 20.02.1071) HJRY
d.+ other issue - Helbert (b c1032), Gazon (b c1033), Eliant (b c1034), son (b c1040)
  ii. Ralph de Toeni (b c992)
  iii. Robert de Toeni (b c1009, d 04.08.1088)
  m. Adele Osule (b c1014)
  Noting the similarities between them, there could be confusion here between the above Robert & Adele and ...
  a. Robert de Toeni (b c1038, d 08.1088) = Robert de Todeni, lord of Belvoir (d 1088) HJY
  m. Adeliza (b c1035, d before 1088) = Adela HJY
  iv. Hugo de Limesi or Limesay (a 1060)
