        Name: *Baldwin DE REDVERS
        Sex: M
        Death: 4 JUN 1155 in Quarr, Isle of Wight 1
        Occupation: BET 1100 AND 1107 2nd Earl of Devon 1
        2nd Earl of Devon
        Baldwin de Redvers, 2nd Earl of Devon. This Earl upon the demise of King Henry I, espousing the cause of Henry's daughter Maud or Matilda (who had married Henry, Emperor of Germany and thus called Empress Maud, who married later Geoffrey Plantagenet and they were parents of Henry II), took up arms immediately and fortified his castle at Exeter and the Isle of Wight; but being besieged by King Stephen (son of Henry I's sister Adela and Stephen of Blois, Crusader), he was obliged to surrender the castle and all his other possessions and to withdraw and go into exile. (This fight between Empress Maud to put her young son Henry, a baby, on the throne of England, ended in an agreement between her and Stephen whereby she agreed to let him become King if in return her son Henry succeed him, which was done. Stephen was King 1135-1154 and Henry II was King 1154-1189.) Baldwin de Redvers took refuge at the court of the Count of Anjou, and soon after conducted a successful raid into Normandy. About Lent in 1138 he was taken prisoner in Normandy by Enguerrard de Say, a partisan of Stephen, but escaped and returned to England in the autumn of 1139, and, landing at Wareham, seized the Castle of Corfu. This he defended successfully against the King, forcing him to eventually withdraw the siege. By the Empress Maud he was created Earl of Devon, probably about 1141. He married Lucia, daughter of Dru of Balun. He died June, 1155.
        (Kin of Mellcene Thurman Smith, page 276-277)

        He was the son of Richard de Redvers, 1st Earl of Devon. Baldwin de Redvers is also called 1st Earl of Devon.
        He founded several monasteries, notably those of Quarr Abbey (1131), in the Isle of Wight, and the Priory of St. James, at Exeter.
