    • Richard was betrothed in 1120 to Amice de Gael, daughter of Ralph de Gael. Richard and Ralph were drowned in the wreck of the "White Ship".
      He is often described as an illegitimate son of King Henry I, but the "Anglo-Saxon Chronicle" implies his legitimacy and Piers of Langtoft and Robert of Gloucester both refer to him specifically as a son of Queen Matilda. (Burke's Royal Family, pg. 194. According to Given-Wilson and Curteis, pg. 63, and the "Complete Peerage" by Cokayne, Vol. 11, Appendix D, Richard was the son of Ansfride, "a lady of unknown parentage," widow of Anskill. (Anskill was a knight and tenant of Abingdon Abbey. He was imprisoned by King William II and so ill-treated that he died. His young son, William, regained part of his inheritance, which the king had taken, by marrying into the family to which the king had given the properties.
