    SERLON (-[1109]). The History of the foundation of Whitby Monastery records that ”Hugo comes Cestrensis” granted “villam de Whytteby” to “Willielmus de Percy” who came to England in 1067 and founded the monastery with “Serloni fratri suo”[90]. A charter listing the property of Whitby Monastery records that ”Serlo de Perci frater…Willielmi de Perci” became a monk at Whitby and later succeeded as abbot[91]. “Willelmus de Perci” donated property to the monks of Whitby “et Serloni priori fratri meo”, for the souls of “…Emma de Port uxore mea et Alano de Perci filio meo”, by charter dated to [1090/96], witnessed by “Emma de Port uxor mea, Alanus, Walterus et Willielmus filii mei, Ernaldus de Perci…”[92].

    EMMA DE PORT.

    William de Percy married a Saxon lady of rank, but there are no records to establish her parentage. is generally described as Emma de Port,1 the Norman A.d. surname having probably been given to her by the invaders in right of her ownership of Semer near Scarborough, then an important seaport. A graceful legend reports her to have been a daughter of Gospatrick, Earl of Northumberland,' who conferred her hand upon the Norman knight in recompense for his having saved her father's life when, on the suppression of the rebellion, he had fallen into the hands of the Conqueror's army. According to Dugdale, however, the Saxon Earl had only one daughter, Julia, who became the wife of Ranulph de Marley, and we must fall back upon this more prosaic version of Percy's marriage in an ancient MS.: "Emma of the Porte .... was Lady of Semer besides Skarburgh afore the Conquest, and of other lands, William Conqueror gave to Syr William Percye for his good service; and he weddid hyr that was very heir to them in discharging of his conscience."3

    • Notes for Adam de Poynings and Beatrix
      Research Notes:

      "Adam de Poynings" married Beatrix. In the "temp. Steph., gave Church of Poynings to St. Pancras" Their children were Adam, William (d.s.p), John (d.s.p.), and Alberta, who married "De Querceto (Ockley?), witness to her brother's charter." [1]

      Complete Peerage states, [2]

      William (son of Rainald) was the tenant of William de Warenne in 1086 in Poynings, Pangdean, and elsewhere in Sussex, in Foulden, Norfolk, and in Wrentham and elsewhere in Suffolk.(a) Although there is no evidence to prove that he was the lineal ancestor, he was certainly the predecessor in Sussex(b) of Adam de Poynings, who with Beatrice his wife and Adam their son gave to Lewes Priory the churches of Poynings and Pangdean, with 12 solidates of land in specified places in Sussex and 5 messuages in Lewes, which gifts were confirmed by William, (third) Earl de Warenne, 1138-47.(c) Adam de Poynings the elder died ante 1148.(d)

      (a) Domesday Book, vol. i, ff. 27, 27 b; vol. ii, ff. 167-167 b, 399 b, 400 b.
      (b) His holdings in Foulden and Wrentham are also found in the Poynings family at a later date; an account of the lands which formed the fees held of the honor of Warenne by this family is given in Farrer, Honors and Knights' Fees, vol. iii, p. 327 et seq.
      (c) P.R.O. Anc. Deed A 14201; Lewes Chartulary, Sussex Rec. Soc, pt. 1, p. 30, and pt. 2, p. 61. "… ego Willelmus comes de Warenna concedo et confirmo … donationes quas dederunt … Adam et Beatrix uxor ejus et Adam filius eorum . . . dono etiam illis servitium quod ad me pertinet, et Adam et heredes ejus inde clamo quietos." The headings in the Chartulary texts describe Adam as Adam de Ponynges, and there is no doubt that this is correct. The charter suggests that Adam made his gifts with the assent of Beatrice his wife and Adam their son, and that therefore Adam the younger was his heir; further that Adam the elder was alive when the confirmation was issued.
      (d) See p. 657, note "a" infra.

      Adam de Poynings the younger, s. and h.,(a) confirmed to Lewes Priory the 12 solidates of land and the messuages mentioned above …

      (a) Adam the elder had two other sons, John and William, who according to the deduction made ante, p. 656, note "'c," were yr. sons. John witnessed as John de Puninges a Norfolk charter of the (third) Earl to Lewes Priory (Chartulary, pt. i, p. 61); and, as John de Punigges, in company with the (third) Earl, another Norfolk charter to the priori (Chartulary, Norfolk Portion, Norfolk Rec. Soc, no. 3). After his death several benefactions were made to his memory. The (third) Earl made a gift to Castle Acre Priory for his soul (Chartulary, Harl. MS. 2110, f. 5); and confirmed the gift made to Lewes Priori by William and Adam sons of Beatrice de Puningis for the soul of John their brother, namely 10s. from Poynings mill (Chartulary, pt. 1, p. 62). This latter gift was confirmed by Adam de Ponnynges (the younger), describing it as made by William his brother and Beatrice his mother for the soul of John his brother (Idem, pt. 2, p. 29). Another commemorative gift was made by William de Chesney and Aubreve his wife (Idem, pt. 2, p. 62), which Aubreye is described as sister of Adam son of Adam de Punyngis in a charter post 1164 (Idem, pt. 2, p. 60). This evidence suggests that John died after his father Adam the elder, who must therefore have died during the tenure of the Earldom by the third Earl, and before his departure for the crusade in 1147.
