"Unless this be an interpolation, it cannot refer to the noble family of Lovaine of Estains in Essex, who descended from Henry IV., Duke of Brabant, by Maud, daughter of Matthew, Earl of Flanders. Their ancestor Godfrey was this Duke's younger son, and held in 1200 the Honour of Eye in Suffolk, which had been given to the Duchess of Lovaine in Richard I.'s time." [2]

Jovelyn Louvaine was brother of Queen Adeliza, second wife of King Henry I. Jocelyn's father was Godfrey Barbatus, Duke of Lorraine and Count of Brabant who was descended from Charlemagne.
