a. While Gilbert de Stainton is shown in various contemporary sources as a son of William I of Lancaster, he is not shown here because of chronological implausibilities. While he may well be a son of William I of Lancaster, the available dates do not support him as a son of his father's known wife, Gundred de Warenne. Gundred de Warenne, per Ancestral Roots (ref: Line 84-25 and Line 88-25), married first, Roger de Newburgh, who died 1153; she is later stated as a widow of Roger, thus she would not have married her second husband, William I of Lancaster until mid- to late-1153. Her first-born child by this second marriage could not have been born before 1154.
Additionally, Gilbert de Stainton's daughter Christian de Stainton had a son by Michael II le Fleming, namely William le Fleming, whom is stated by AR (ref Line 34-26/27) to have been born "ca. 1150". It must be noted also that Gilbert de Stainton is stated in Weis to be a "probable" son of William I of Lancaster...but does not mention his wife Gundred. Since there is roughly a 35-year span between the birth of William I of Lancaster (abt 1115) and his proposed grandson, William le Fleming (abt 1150) in which to fit two generations (Gilbert de Stainton and daughter Christian), it is almost certain that Gilbert, if he was indeed a son of William I of Lancaster, was a son by a previous wife (or an earlier "affiliation"), AND that William I of Lancaster's birthdate was likely closer to abt 1100 than abt 1115.
See my doc "taillebois/lanc" which shows a lineage for Taillebois and that Gilbert, Lord of Kendal for whom I show no wife, married Goditha Taillebois, dau of William Taillebois and Margaret, William son of Ivo Taillebois and Lucy.
AR: Line 34[23-26], Line 38, Line 88[25-27].
