Ralph de Waer or Guader or Wayer, also known as de Gael, 'the Staller', 1st Earl of Norfolk and Suffolk b by 1041, d c1069
BE1883 reports that there was only 1 Earl who conspired against the King, fled into exile, and forfeited the title. BE1883 also reports that that Earl was the father of Ralph, Alan and also Amicia who married Robert, Earl of Leicester. We follow TCP which shows additional generations.

TCP Salisbury starts this family with the following Edward and reports that, whilst some sources say he was son of Walter 'le Ewrus', Earl of Rosmar, that Walter was actually "a fictitious person" and Edward's parentage is unknown. TCP reports: "The nickname "le Ewrus" = l'heureux, or the fortunate was converted into "de Evreux" by later writers, with the result that the family has been given the name Devereux and has been tacked on to the Norman Counts of Evreux." But the father of the Humphrey de Bohun below was a close neighbor of the d'Evereux family in Normandy before 1066, so there is a certain probability of the connection.
