A History of the Plantagenets, Vol I, The Conquering Family, Thomas B Costain, Doubleday &Co, Garden City, 1949:
p11: "The Dowager Queen Adelicia had remarried in the meantime, her second husband being William d' Aubigny, son of William the Conqueror's cupbearer. This new husband was a handsome, brave, and honorable knight, andit had been in every sense a love match. They were living at Arundel Castle, which Henry had bestowed on his wife, and so the saying,
`Since William rose and Harold fell,
There have been earls of Arundel,' did not apply tothis particular juncture, Adelicia's husband not being awarded the title until the next reign..."
p266: "John threw off the mask as soon as his reinforcements began to pour into the country. He came out of his hiding place, roaring for revenge on the men who had humbled him. He struck first at Rochester, which William d'Aubigny, a descendant [Great Grandson] of beautiful Queen Adelicia, was holding for the barons...
"D'Aubigny held out bravely. He stayed the arm of an archer who was aiming at the King and who protested that he wanted to rid the country of `our bloody enemy.' `Hold thy hand,' said the commander. `Strike not this evil beast whose fate is in God's decision.'"
