Collins's peerage of England; genealogical, biographical, and historical, Volume 4 by Arthur Collins, Sir Egerton Brydges

"Sir William de Harcourt, who in 47 Henry III. had summons, amongst divers others, to attend at Worcester, sufficiently furnished with horse and arms, on Lammas-day, to resist the power of Llewellyn, Prince of Wales, then in arms at the head of his countrymen: and the next year, 1264, received command to attend the King at Oxford, in Med-lent, with horse and arms, there to give him counsel, and to march along with him against the said Llewellyn. However, he afterwards joined Simon Montfort, Earl of Leicester, and his partizans, against the said King Henry; but had the benefit of the Dictum de Kenilworth, proclaimed on October 31st, 1266, after the King recovered his liberty at the battle of Evesham. Sir William departed this life A.D. 1278, having married two wives; first, Alice, daughter of Alan la Zouche, by whom he had two daughters; viz. Margery, wedded to Sir John Cantelupe, without issue; and Orabella, who was wedded to Sir Fulke Pembrugge, and died in 1279; and, secondly, Hillaria (or Eleanor), daughter of Henry, Lord Hastings, by Ada his wife, daughter of David, Earl of Huntingdon, brother to Malcolm IV. and William (denomindated the Lion), Kings of Scotland. By this Lady Sir William had an only son and successor."
