bullet  Information about this person:

• Background Information. 1121
"I think that I have somewhere seen it stated that Mascelina, first wife of the first William de Cantilupe, was a "Coheiress of Montgomery." It is certain that this Mascelina was a daughter of Audulf de Bracy (I), and that the said Audulf left a son and heir Audulf (II). It is therefore improbable that Mascelina was an heiress, unless indeed Audulf de Bracy (I) was twice married, and unless the mother of Mascelina and the mother of Audulf (II) were two persons, and the former an heiress. However I do not think that it was in right of any wife, but rather in right of some ancestress, that William de Cantilupe, in January 1216, obtained possession of all the late William de Courtenay's estates, except Montgomery itself. . . "

~ Rev. Robert Eyton, Antiquities of Shropshire, Vol. XI, p. 146
