Notes for Hugh Pantulf and Christina Fitz Alan

Research Notes:

The Oxford DNB biography of Hugh Pantulf states, [1]

Pantulf, Hugh (d. 1224), baron, was the eldest son of Ivo Pantulf (b. before 1114, d. in or before 1176) [see under Pantulf, William], lord of Wem in Shropshire, whom he succeeded c.1175. …
He also had close links with the Fitzalans, resulting from his marriage in 1170 to Christiana, daughter of William fitz Alan, the lord of Oswestry and Clun. The marriage brought him Badminton in Gloucestershire; Pantulf later gave its church to Lilleshall Abbey. From Michaelmas 1179 to Michaelmas 1189 Pantulf was sheriff of Shropshire, an office wellnigh hereditary to the Fitzalans. …
Hugh Pantulf was dead by 28 December 1224, when the king took the homage of William, the eldest of his five sons.
William Pantulf … died in January 1233, leaving two daughters, Elizabeth, who died without heirs, and Matilda, who married Ralph Butler.
