The following William de Montfichet is identified in some web sites as son of Robert de Gernon, apparently the same Robert who was ancestor of various Cavendish families. We are not convinced on this not least because Collins, in its article on the Cavendish Dukes of Devonshire, makes no mention of such a connection.

This family took its name from a hill, Mons Altus now Mold, in Flintshire. It is known both by the latinised version Montalt and the Norman-French Mohaut. The first mentioned by TCP & BE1883 was Hugh FitzNorman, brother of Ralph & Roger. Commoners starts its article with "The family of Maude, originally Lords of Monte Alto, in Italy, was established in England by Eustace de Monte Alto, surnamed the Norman Hunter, one of the soldiers of the Conquest" and then identifies his sons as "de Monte Alto". However, we suspect that the reference to Monte Alto is presumptuous.
Norman = Eustace, 'Norman Hunter'
1. Hugh FitzNorman
A. William FitzHugh de Muhald d sp? c1141
2. Ralph FitzNorman
A. Robert FitzRalph de Mohaut or Montalt d c1162 identified by Commoners as Roger, son rather than nephew of Hugh
The following follows TCP & BE1883 rather than Commoners. Working out the exact differences is not easy not least because of the apparent confusion between the uses of Robert and Roger.
m Leucha possibly dau of William FitzNeel of Halton
i. Ralph de Mahaut of Montalt or Mold d c1200
m Maud
ii. Robert de Mahaut of Montalt or Mold d c1210 probably father of ...
This might be the Robert shown by Commoners as married to Emma, dau of Sir Robert Delaval, sister of Beatrix who married William Malpas, and father of various sons including Andomar, ancestor of the Maudes.
a. Roger de Mahaut of Montalt or Mold d 1232
m Nichole
1 Roger de Mahaut of Montalt or Mold d 28.06.1260, justice of Chester
m Cecily d'Aubigny dau of William d'Aubigny, Earl of Arundel, by Mabel of Chester
A Robert de Mahaut of Mold and Hawarden d before 16.09.1275
m c1261 Joan de Mowbray d 1314-5, dau of Roger de Mowbray
i Roger de Mahaut or Montalt of Mold and Hawarden, Lord Mohaut dsp before 02.12.1296
m Juliane de Clifford dau of Roger de Clifford
ii Robert de Mahaut or Montalt of Mold and Hawarden, Lord Mohaut b 25.03.1274, dsp 26.12.1329
m c01.1300/1 Emma d 26.01.1331/2, widow of Richard, Lord FitzJohn
iii Isabel de Mahaut apparently of this generation
m William de Morley, 1st Lord of Morley d by 1302
Robert Morley 2nd Baron d 23.03.1359/60, Admiral,m1 Hawise Marshal d before 1327, dau of William Marshal, 1st Baron
B John de Mahaut or Montalt a 1289
TCP notes that Dugdale, citing Glover's Collections, identifies John as the eldest son who married before 1254 Milicent de Cantilupe and died before 1273 but supports an argument that that was another John. BE1883 shows John as elder brother and married to widow Elene then Milisent de Cantilupe. We follow TCP.
m Elene a 1289, widow of Robert de Stockport
2 daughter apparently of this generation
m Hugh de Ferrers of Bugbrooke
b. Andomar or Aylmer de Montalt a 1174 possibly of this generation
Neither TCP nor BE1883 mention Andomar. The generational attributions shown by Commoners are suspect not least because there are some suspect dates. For example, Commoners shows Andomar a 1174 as nephew of Beatrix whose father-in-law is thought to have still been alive in 1252.
c. Beatrix de Montalt possibly of this generation
Beatrix, shown by Commoners as daughter of Ralph and sister of Robert, is identified by Visitation Cheshire, 1580, Mallpas, Barons of Mallpas as "fil. naturalis Rogeri Montealt" and by Visitation Cheshire, 1580, Egerton of Egerton and of Olton as "base sister to Sir Roger Monhalt".
m William Malpas
iii. Roger de Mahaut of Elford youngest son
a. Leucha de Mohaut d by 1227
BE1883 suggests that Leucha was daughter of the above Roger by Cecily de Albini but we follow TCP Orreby in showing this connection.
m Philip de Orreby of Alvanley b c1190, dvp
iv. William de Mahaut, 
v. Ranulph de Mahaut
3. Roger FitzNorman
