(d) This family appears to have taken its name from the Isle of Ely. Their arms, a fesse between two chevrons, differed in tinctures only from those of Pecche, who also held immediately of the Bishop. Rougemont is in Harewood, Yorks. The castle and manor came to the first Lord Lisle as part of his share of the inheritance of Isabel, Countess of Aumale, who had held as heiress of FitzGerold, de Curcy and Romelli.

(e) This Robert was probably son of Robert de Insula by Galiena, daughter of William Blund. Geoffrey Ridell, Archdeacon of Canterbury, gave the said Galiena on her marriage to Robert, the land that was Mainer the Porter's at Exning. Confirmed by Henry II.(f) In 9 John [c 1208] Robert claimed the advowson of Wimpole, co. Cambridge, under charter of Conan, lord of the Honour of Richmond, to his grandfather Ralph, sewer of the said Conan. (b) Chanc. Miscellanea, 9/22; De Banco Roll, Mich. 15 Edw. II, rot:352.
