From Medlands

 The Vita Dominæ Hildeburgis names “primus Ascelinus cognominatus Goellus, secundus Wiltinus…[miles], tertius Roberti clericali ordine” as the three children of “Roberto Ibriensi” and his wife “Hildiburgis”[971].  "Primus Ascelinus cognomento Goellus, secundus Willelms…milites…tertius Robertus clericus" are named as the three sons of "Roberto Ibriensi" & his wife under their mother's charter donating property to the abbey of Saint-Martin de Pontoise[972].  Guillaume de Jumièges records that "Goël de Breherval" seized the castle of Ivry-la-Bataille (Eure) from Guillaume de Breteuil and surrendered it to Robert III Duke of Normandy[973].  The resulting war with Guillaume ended with the latter's capture and agreement to Ascelin's marriage to his daughter[974].  m ISABEL de Breteuil, illegitimate daughter of GUILLAUME de Breteuil & his mistress ---.  The Vita Dominæ Hildeburgis names “Elisabeth” as wife of “Goellus”[975].  The charter recording the donation of "femina Hildeburgis…" to the abbey of Saint-Martin de Pontoise (see above) names "Elisabeth" as wife of her son "Ascelinus…Goellus" and their sons "Robertus et Willelmus"[976].  She was the daughter of Guillaume according to Orderic Vitalis[977].  She must have been illegitimate as the chronicler says in another passage that her father's marriage was childless[978].  "Hildeburgis mater Goelli de Ibriaco" donated property to the abbey of Saint-Martin de Pontoise with the consent of "Goellus…uxoremque suam Isabel filiosque suos Willelmum atque Robertum" by charter dated [1116][979].  Ascelin & his wife had [five or more] children

Ascelin Gouel De Perceval, Succeeded his father. This feudal lord, like his predecessor, held a distinguished place in the Norman army of the conquest, and for his services had a great of divers manors, particularly of Weston and Stawel, in the country of Somerset. He was a man of violent temper, and hence acquired the surname of LUPUS, or the Wolf. Odericus Vitalis gives the particulars of a long and extraordinary dispute which the Ascelin had with the Earl of Bretevil, in Normandy, and which terminated by his obtaining his own terms, after sustaining a siege of two months in his castle of Breherval, against a powerful army, commanded by the ablest captaine of the age- which terms included the retention of the fortress, and the hand of Isabella, the Earl of Bretevil's only daughter, in marriage. This lady, although illegitimate, upon the failure of the earl's legitimate issue, became, through the favor of Henry I, heir in part to her father, and her husband ASCELIN was established in the earldom of Yvery in 1119. The issue of the marriage were seven sons, and a daughter, married to Radulfus Rufus, a noble Norman. Of the sons, three alone have been handed down to us, namely, Robert, William, and John, were of the youngest, John, Acquired from his father the manor of Harpetre, and assumed that as a surname, nut it was afterwards changed by his to Gournay. Ascelin died soon after his accession to the Earldom of Yvery, and was succedded by his eldest son.
