About Robert de Vaux, Treyermayne

The Norman Castle of Vaux or De Vallibus is mentioned by Orderic Vitalis: and then Terra di Vallibus continued in the possession of the family to which it gave their name until the time of King John. Two brothers, Robert and Aitard de Vaux, appears in Domesday as mesne-lords in Norfolk. The former was probably the same Robert de Vals or de Vaux who, six years before, gave his Tithes to St. Evrault [orderic Vit. 576]. Both of them held of Roger Bigod. "Robert de Vallibus, who held Pentney of Bigod, founded a Priory there for the souls of Agnes his wife and their children."

Hubert de Vaux, the grandson of the founder of Pentney Priory, Robert Vaux, and son of the second Robert Vaux, received from Henry II, a grant of the barony of Gilsland, one of the three great fiefs into which Ranulph de Meschines had divided the frontier district of Cumberland. Hubert earned his share of the reconquered territory by helping to drive out the Scots. Hubert died in 1164, and was succeeded by his eldest son, Robert. Robert died without issue and his brother Ralph succeeded him. The line terminated with Ralph's grandson, Hubert II, whose daughter Maud, Landy of Gilsland, carried the barony to the Multons; and her great-great-grand-daughter Margaret again transferred it to the Dacres.
