Disputed Lineages

Cawley, among others, notes that the primary source for the Complete Peerage's identification of Emma as Richard's wife has not been identified, and regards the identity of his wife as being unknown.

    Richard, sirnamed Goz, son of Turstine, was vice-comes de Abrincis, that is, Auranches in Normandy. He reconciled his father to the duke of Normandy by his good carriage, and got far more than his father lost. Gemeticensis, ibid. lib. 7,cap. 6.
