• Background Information. 1390
"The name of Robert fitz Wimarc's father never transpires, there can be no doubt that he was a Norman ; nay that he was allied by blood to the Ducal House, and so a relation of Queen Emma, results from a well authenticated statement that Robert fitz Wimarc was a cousin (consnguineus) of Duke William. William of Poictiers, a Chplain and Protege of the Duke, and withal a very accurate writer, expressly says so ; and whereas it is clear that the noble Saxon lady, Wimarca, mother of Robert, cannot have endowed him with any such consanguinity, it follows that his Norman father did.

"Of Wymarcha, the mother of Robert fitz Wymarc, we know little more than what has been alredy hinted at, viz; that William of Poictiers, writing her name as Guimara, calls her a noble lady (Nobilis Mulier). That she was an English heiress is no great assumption, when we see that she was selected as wife for a relation of Queen Emma. Where her estates lay is another question, for Domesday affords no means of distinguishing those which her son, Robert, inherited from his mother, and those which he himself acquired under the successive auspices of Edward the Confessor and King William."
