||Rualo d' Avranches |
Footnote from Planche Page 42 
The Ruellinus de Abrincis named in this document* has never appeared in any pedigree of the family of D'Avranches. From the other interesting record to which we have just alluded, we infer that he was the brother of Simon d'Avranche, plaintiff or appellant, in a trial by wager of battle with Baldwin, Comte de Guisnes, 10th February, 1201, respecting the right to some lands in Newington; for there can be no doubt that the hiatus in the MS. should be filled up thus:-" Inter Simonem de AvAvranches petentem per Roelland. fratrem suum."(Archaeol.

In a document of the date 1127, printed by Mr. Boys in his 11 Collections for the History of Sandwich," pp. 551-3, the name of the grandfather is corrupted into Ruerent de Aurences, and in the " Rot.
