Child of Ralph de Fay and Beatrice de Turnham was:
a. Raoul/Ralph was a younger son of Aimery I. The connection of the Fay family to this Raoul, or Ralph, is based upon Ralph de Fay (d 1223) being called "kinsman" of Queen Eleanor in several early records, as well as the use of the name Ralph. Queen Eleanor, or Eleanor of Aquitaine, wife of both Louis VII of France and Henry II Curtmantle of England, was a near-contemporary of Ralph de Fay and was still living while Ralph was a young man. Eleanor's mother, Eleanor de Chastellerault was a sister of Ralph de Fay's grandfather. This is a PROPOSED connection which is currently under discussion and investigation by several knowledgeable professionals on soc.genealogy.medieval. It should also be noted that the intervening generation of Ralph de Fay, son of Raoul/Ralph and father of Ralph de Fay (d 1223) has been suggested based upon the chronology. For a complete discussion and presentation of the records which lend credence to this proposed connection, please go to soc. genealogy.medieval.
