a. Daughter of Robert le Vavasour by his first wife (whose identity is not known), Maud first married Theobald Walter, ancestor of the illustrious Earls of Ormond, and secondly, in 1207, Fulk Fitz Warin. Robert le Vavasour, son of William le Vavasour, served as deputy for Theobald Walter, Sheriff of Lancashire in 1197.
b. By his wife Constance, daughter of Ralph de Toeni and Perronelle, he received in free marriage a moiety of the manor of Yarkhill in co. Hereford, to them and the heirs of their bodies. He was drowned in the Ouse River, when endeavoring to escape at the battle of Lewes, 14 May 1264. Constance had livery, 11 Feb 1265/66, of the manor of Alveston and tenements in Stanton, which had been assigned to her as dower. Recent findings posted on SGM indicate that Fulk was twice married, his first wife having been Clarice d'Auberville, who has traditionally been attributed as the second wife of his father, Fulk (III). Additionally, Clarice is now believed to be the mother of Mabel, while Constance was the mother of his heir, Fulk (V) Fitz Warin. Note also that Fulk and Clarice's daughter, Mabel, married (as her second husband) John de Tregoz, and that one of their daughters was named Clarice.
c. Of Whittington, Salop, Alveston, co. Gloucester, Wantage, Berkshire, and Stanton Fitwarren, Wiltshire, he was the only son and heir. His fealty was taken 29 Apr 1273, and had livery of his father's lands. He was with the King in the Army of Wales in 1282, and in 1292, before leaving for Gascony on the King's service, he demised the manor of Wantage to Master Henry Huse for nine years (his heir being then under age). He was summoned for military service from 12 Dec 1276 to 30 Jun 1314, to attend the King at Shrewsbury, 28 Jun 1283, to attend the King wherever he might be, 8 Jun 1294, to attend the King at Salisbury, 26 Jan 1295/97, and to Parliament from 24 Jun 1295 to 16 Oct 1315, whereby he is held to have become Lord FitzWarin. On 10 Aug 1301, the King ordered Fulk and Richard Fitz Alan, Earl of Arundel, to abstain from attacking each other (this having been a long-standing feud which had begun in 1295 when Fulk had accused the Earl of ravaging his lands at Whittington). He was pardoned on 16 Oct 1313, having been an adherent of Thomas, Earl of Lancaster, for any part he had taken against Piers de Gaveston.
