Edward of Salisbury in the Foundation for Medieval Genealogy ~http://fmg.ac/Projects/MedLands/ENGLISH%20NOBILITY%20MEDIEVAL1.htm#_Toc21106921 [See document in the Memories section]
EDWARD de Salisbury, son of --- (before 1060-). According to the Book of Lacock, “Edwardum, natione Anglicum natum, postea vicecomitem Wiltes” was the son of “Walterus le Ewrus, comes de Rosmar”[1399]. The Complete Peerage describes this supposed father as “a fictitious person” and states that Edward’s parentage is unknown[1400]. Sheriff of Wiltshire 1081[1401]. Domesday Book records land held by “Edward of Salisbury” in Walton-on-Thames in Elmbridge Hundred, and in Godalming and Woking Hundreds, Surrey, Bramshott and North Charford in Neathem and Fordingbridge Hundreds respectively in Hampshire, extensive land-holdings in Wiltshire, Canford Magna and Kinson in Dorset, Great Gaddesden in Danish Hundred and land in Hoddesdon in Hertford Hundred in Hertfordshire (called "Edward the Sheriff" in the title)[1402].
m ---. The name of Edward’s wife is not known.
Edward & his wife had two children:
1. MATILDA de Salisbury (-bur Lanthony Priory). The Book of Lacock names “Matildam” as daughter of “Edwardum…vicecomitem Wiltes”, adding that she married “Humphridus de Bohun”[1403]. The estimated date of her marriage suggests that Matilda may have been older than her brother Walter, whose children were probably not born before [1115]. A manuscript which narrates the descents of the founders of Lanthony Abbey names “dominum Hunfredum de Bohun secundum” married “Matildem filiam Edwardi de Salesbury”, adding that she brought “Weston juxta Salesbury, et Walton, Newenton, Piryton, Staunton, Trobrege…” to her husband[1404]. The Complete Peerage states that the marriage was arranged "at the instance (it is said)" of King William II, citing Dugdale[1405]. m ([1089/99]) HUMPHREY [II] de Bohun, son of HUMPHREY [I] de Bohun Lord of Tatterford, Norfolk & his [third] wife --- (-[1128/29]).
