However, on wikitree, which I use as a secondary source for biographical information and skeletal information to verify later, claims Matilda (Cailly) de Bois. I emailed the author of the profile and he responded to me.
He wrote, "Daniel Power's 2004 book on the Norman Frontier is one source. p.486, viewable on Google Books, https://books.google.co.uk/books?redir_esc=y&id=Vlts5rwsNosC&q=Cailly#v=snippet&q=Cailly&f=false. Power did a lot of original research on families with lands on the Norman frontier, using French archives extensively: in this case, the archives of Seine-Maritime. See footnote 7 on p. 486. The source he refers to is not on the web: one would have to visit the archives to double check what Power says. It refers to Matilda as widow of "Henry de Ver".
Is it now establised that Henry Lord Drayton married Matilda Cailly? I assume Hildeburga was from these sources:
[S00058] The Complete Peerage, 1936 , Doubleday, H.A. & Lord Howard de Walden.
10:Append9:J page 114
[S03850] The House of Greene London, 1685 , Halstead, Robert.
If anybody can assert the provinence of either woman married Drayton I would love to know.
