John I of Dol had married a sister of Ralph I of Fougères, and Ralph's son Henry had married Oliva of Penthièvre, sister of Geoffrey II Boterel and Alan of Richmond. Henry's son Ralph II of Fougères was one of those English landholders who, as Breton seigneurs, took no active part in the wars of Stephen's reign. In England the lands of men originally from Fougères lay mostly in the pro-Angevin Honour of Plympton, now the basis of the de Redvers earldom of Devon. Also married to a sister of Alan and Geoffrey was Oliver of Dinan, who held land in Devon. Like his brother Alan of Bécherel, he took no active part in English affairs at this time. A third brother, Josce de Dinan, whose interests were apparently mainly English, is found in Shropshire holding Ludlow for the Empress or, rather, against the de Lacy, to whom it had formerly belonged. He did, however, maintain the Empress's cause with the barons of Wallingford and like them was rewarded for his service by Henry II after 1154.100 Although Dinan shared a common ancestor with Dol, relations between the two were frequently strained.101 The relative positions taken by the three Dinan brothers illustrate the problems posed by the Lamballe-Penthièvre rivalry at this date, when the rivals were brothers. Alan and Geoffrey II Boterel had two other sisters whose marriages further illustrate the dilemma. Maud had married Walter de Gant and was mother of Gilbert de Gant, created earl of Lincoln by Stephen in 1149.102 Tiffania was the wife of the Angevin supporter William de Tancarville, son of Rabel de Tancarville, one of Henry I's new men. In other words, the rivalry of Alan and Geoffrey was reflected among their siblings; and real though that rivalry was, the marriages of these siblings gave each a foot in the other's camp in respect of both English and Breton affairs.
