Facts and Events
The marriage of Sir Robert de Holand and Maud la Zouche and Maud's birth in about 1290 are well established by the inquests at the death of her father, Alan la Zouche (CIPM, v. 5, pp. 255-259, the first dated 27 March 7 Edw.

It is not clear why CP says Robert and Maud were married “about 1311” (when she would have been 21) but it was certainly before March 1314 (when she was 24).

About 1308 he married Maude la Zouche, daughter of Lord Alan la Zouche, 1st Baron la Zouche of Ashby and Eleanor de Segrave.
Robert and Maude had thirteen children:
