Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: 1064
Death: 1135
Belvoir
Melton Borough
Leicestershire, England

Adeliza de Tosny (de Toeni/Tony/Toni), Heiress Of Belvoir, was the daughter of Robert de Toeni, Lord of Belvoir and Adeliza FitzOsulf du Plessis, Heiress of Belvoir. It is believed that she was born in circa 1064 at either Belvoir in Leicestershire, England, or Saint-Sauveur in Calvados, Normandy, France.

An excellent article by Judith Green about the complexities of the honour of Belvoir (including Belvoir castle) which was held by the de Tosny family and then inherited through Adeliza de Tosny (de Toeni/Tony) who married Roger Bigod, and who was the mother of both Maud Bigod (who married William d'Aubigny "Pincerna" or the Butler) and Cecily Bigod (who married William d'Aubigny "Brito" the Breton), and who inherited Belvoir and passed it along to her d'Aubigny descendants, can be read at:
