bullet  Information about this person:

• Background Information. 894
Dodsworth [MSS. ii. 57] quotes a confirmation by John de Bella aqua or Bellow, a representative of Skelton Bruces, to the Priory of Nun Monkton, of a grant by William, son of Osbert de Arches and Iveta, his daughter, of lands in Monkton and Hammerton and the churches there at Askahm, and the chapel of Walton. Peter de Brus I, confirmed to the Canons of Helagh Park a croft and certain liberties in Walton given by his mother, the Lady Iveta, and the charter following he gives eight acres there in his new assart by the Wharfe, for the good of the soul of his mother Iveta de Archez [Chartulary of Helagh Park. Cott. MSS. Ve-p. A. iv. 54b]

• Background Information. 895
Osbern's (Ivetta's grandfather) surname in the Domesday Servey was written De Arcis which would be Arches, a place in Normandy. Osbern de Arches was Sheriff of Yorkshire about 1100. It is not known when he died or when he was born, but he was succeeded by his eldest son, William de Arches. William along with his wife, Ivetta, founded the Benedictine Priory at Nun Monkton. There was no male heir to this family, so Thorp passed to Ivetta who married twice, first to Roger de Flamville, and second to Adam de Brus, of Skelton, in Cleveland, who survived his wife Ivetta. Ivetta died in 1152, and was buried at Guisburgh Priory, which was founded by Robert de Brus in 1119.
~Lower Wharfedale, pp. 421-422

Iveta married Adam de Brus of Skelton, son of Adam de Brus Lord of Skelton and Agnes de Albemarle. (Adam de Brus of Skelton was born in Skelton Castle, Yorkshire, England, died on 20 Mar 1180 in Skelton Castle, Yorkshire, England 894 and was buried in Ginsbrough, Yorkshire, England .)

Iveta next married Roger de Flamville, son of Hugo de Flamville and Unknown.
