    Brought Skipton and Harwood and other lands to her husband.
    William Meschine and his wife, Cecilia de Rumelli (d. 1151-55), both held substantial lands, hers including holdings in Skipton, Yorkshire, inherited from her father, Robert (EYC, v. 7 (1947), pp. v-vi, 1-6; also Keats-Rohan, Domesday Descendants, pp. 674-75). In 1120 Cecilia, with her husband, founded the priory of Embsay (Burton, Monasticon Eboracense, p. 115, this volume does not have the actual charters, referencing Mon. Angl. and other sources), a little east of Skipton, and contributed lands to a number of other religious houses, including St. Bees Priory, Fountains Abbey, and Pontefract Abbey. Cecilia de Rumelli married secondly Henry de Tracy not earlier than 1135 (EYC, v. 7, p. 59).
    The priory of Embsay was moved a few miles east to Bolton by Cecilia's daughter, Alice (d. before Michaelmas 1187), in 1155 (EYC, v. 7, p. 65), where it eventually became Bolton Abbey. Some sources show Roger Tempest as the founder of Embsay or Bolton Abbey, but that is clearly mistaken. Alice's first husband was William fitz Duncan, the son of King Duncan II of Scotland and the nephew of Duncan's successor, King David. Alice took her mother's last name.
