    Notes 
    • Hugh, Earl of Chester. Cyveiliog, in Wales, is anglicized as Kevelioc. According to the "Dictionary of National biography" when Hugh's father died in 1153, Hugh, still underage, succeeded to the family possessions on both sides of the channnel. These included the hereditary viscounties of Avaranches and Bayeux. Hugh was present at the council of Clerendon in 1164 which drew up the asssizes of Clerendon. Hugh joined in the great feudal revolt against Henry II in 1173. He was influential in inciting Brittany to revolt. Henry captured Hugh after a long siege. Hugh was shuffled from prison to prison until the general peace commencing with the peace of Falaise in
      1174, to which Hugh was a witness. His lands were not fully restored until 1177. Henry required Hugh to participate in the Irish campaigns, but Hugh took no prominent part and received no Irish estates. Hugh's son, Randulf III, succeeded to Hugh's estates and to the Earldom of Chester upon Hugh's death in 1181, but Randulf died without an heir, so Hugh's four daughters became co-heiresses.
