    (Collections towards the history and antiquities of the county of Hereford. John Duncumb, William Cooke, Morgan George Watkins - 1897.)
    1179-80, 26 Hen. II., in which same regnal year Adam de Port gave 1000 marks to the King for livery of his wife's inheritance in Normandy, as also that he might be restored to the King's favour and do his homage. This baron, who derived his local name from Port-en-Bessin of the fee of the Bishop of Bayeux, appears to have been thrice married, and to have survived to the 15th year of the reign of King John;
    his first wife was the countess Sibilla, widow of Milo, Earl of the county of Hereford, and daughter and heiress of Bernard de Neufmarche, a powerful baron of that county, whose fief Adam de Port reported to the Exchequer, 14 Hen. II. with the nomenclature of the knight's fees held of the old and new feofment ; at which date his father John de Port, Lord of Basing in the county of Southampton, was yet living. By the countess Sibilla he had no issue, and her property descended through her daughter by her first husband, Berta, wife of Philip de Braose, to William de Braose, who in 1194 paid 22 li. 13s. for the knight's fees which had belonged to Adam.
    His second wife was Mabilia de Aureavalle, whose inheritance in Normandy he has been shewn to have obtained in 1180, and by whom he had a son named William de Portu, who had possession of the Honour of Lithaire in the second year of the reign of King John, and who eventually inheriting the lands of the family of St. Johanne through descent from Muriel, sister of William and Robert St. John, who had intermarried with his maternal ancestor de Aureavalle, thereupon assumed that local surname.
    The third wife of Adam de Port was sister of William de Braose, as above mentioned; she was living in 1210.
