The contents of this page were originally launched within Herbert01 but
were moved here to distinguish this family from that one.
2 TCP Pembroke, vol X page 400 note b reports: "A spurious pedigree from Herbert the Chamberlain of Henry I, who is given an equally false descent from Herbert, Count of Vermandois, is set forth by Nicholas, Counties and County Families of Wales, vol ii, pp. 776-77." This not only threw doubt on the descent to Sir William ap Thomas ap Gwilym ap Jenkin of Raglan Castle see Herbert01 but also throws doubt on the fact that the father of the first Chamberlain Herbert is reported by BE1883 to have been Peter de Vermandois, brother of Herbert, Count of Vermandois.
3 BE1883 splits the origins of this family between two articles: one on Fitz-Herbert, the other on Herbert. The way that they are worded indicates that Herbert Chamberlain to King Henry II was brother to Piers FitzHerbert rather than his father. The picture is further confused by a looseness in the wording of BLG1886 Herbert of Llanarth which leaves it open to question as to the number of generations involved. Fortunately, TCP FitzReynold provides enough clarity to give some comfort that the following is reasonably secure, at least for the line to the Lords FitzReynold.
