"William constable of Cheshire, junior, son of William, was the third baron of Halton.

He removed the canons of Runcorn to Norton.....He gave also half of Raby in Wirrall to the abby of St. Werburge in Chester......This William is stiled nepos Walteri de Gant, and his sister Agnes stiled Agnes de Gant. By which it may seem that William son of Nigell married a sister of Walter de Gant, and daughter of Gilbert.

This William constable junior, died in Normandy in the reign of king Stephen without issue; and so his inheritance was divided and shared between his two sisters and heirs."
