Hugh De Keveioc
Hugh of Kevelioc de Meschines was born in 1147 in Kevelioc, Merionethshire, Wales.

His father, Ranulph de Meschines (surnamed de Gernons, from being born in Gernon Castle, in Normandy), Viscount Bayeaux, was a leading military character. In 1139, King Stephen made Henry the son of King David of Scotland Earl of Northumberland and gave him Carlisle and Cumberland. This so incensed Ranulph that he took up arms against King Stephen along with the Empress Maud, and the young Prince Henry

Walter Gifford
Walter Gifford
He was a cousin of His Grace, William the Conqueror, Duke of Normandy (1028-1087) and one of his stout supporters in the Duchy of Normandy. Walter was at the Battle of Mortemer and was among the Norman barons who surprised and defeated Counts Odo and Renaud leading the French contingent attacking Normandy from the east. The Normans attacked the French while they slept, most being either killed or taken prisoner. King Henry I soon thereafter withdrew his remaining forces and left Normandy. In 1054 Walter was in charge of maintaining the siege of Arques castle, against William of Talou, who had rebelled against Duke William.
