Kings and Queens of Great Britain, Genealogical Chart, Anne Taute and Romilly Squire, Taute, 1990: "Eleanor, Mar =2 (2) Richard Ftiz Alan Lord of Arundel, Died 1376."
The Political History of England, Vol II, George Burton Adams Longmans Green and Co, 1905, Ch X, p217:  "It is natural to suppose that the many barons who now declared against the king, and fortified their castles, were influenced by a knowledge of Robert's action, or at least by a knowledge that it was coming. No one ofthese was of the rank of earl. William Peverel, Ralph Lovel, and Robert of Lincoln, William Fitz John, William of Mohun, Ralph Paganel, and William Fitz Alan, are mentioned by name as holding castles against the king, besides a son of Robert'sand Geoffrey Talbot who were at Bristol, and Walkelin Maminot who held Dover. The movement was confined to the southwest, but as a beginning it was not to be neglected..."
p218: "...[Stephen] took Castle Cary and Harptree, and after somewhat more prolanged resistance, Shrewsbury, which was held by William Fitz Alan, whose wife was Earl Robert's niece..."
