Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: unknown
Death: Nov., 1129

Nigel d'Aubigny (died 1129) was a Norman nobleman, and supporter of Henry I of England . He is described as "one of the most favoured of Henry's 'new men'", and after the Battle of Tinchebrai in 1106 was largely rewarded by Henry with the lands of Robert de Stuteville , who had followed Robert Curthose .

His father was Roger d'Aubigny and his mother Alicia, sister of Geoffrey de Montbray ; William d'Aubigny was his brother.

He married Matilda of Laigle, daughter of Richer of Laigle , who had previously been married to the disgraced Robert de Mowbray and then divorced him.

Nigel divorced Matilda; there were no children. He later married Gundred de Gournay, daughter of Gerard de Gournay and Edith de Warenne. They had a son, Roger. By a change of name, his son was called Roger de Mowbray . From: Wikipedia

Nigel was buried in the priory of Bee, of which he is said to have become a monk before his death (Cont. of William of Jumièges, ed. Duchesne, p. 296; Eyton, Shropshire, viii. 212 ; Pipe Roll, 31 Hen. I, ed. Hunter, p. 138).
