"Maliger or Mauger, the third son of Richard the Fearless, third Duke of Normandy, and direct ancestor of the Granville family, obtained the Earldom of Corbeil by his first marriage in the year 1012, with Germaine de Corbeil, the daughter and heiress of Aubert, second Earl of Corbeil and grand-daughter of Hamon the first Earl, the son of Osmund de Centeville, to whom had been committed the tutorship of Duke Richard during his minority. The title remained for generations in the family, and was revived in the reign of Charles the Second, when Sir John Granville, eldest son of Sir Bevil Granville, on being created Earl of Bath was permitted to assume the additional title Earl of Corbeil.

"According to Palgrave, Mauger acquired considerable importance in French affairs, having greatly distinguished himself by his policy and valour. He took a prominent part in defending Henry, the eldest son of King Robert of France, against his mother Queen Constance, who notwithstanding that he had been crowned in his father's lifetime, was desirous of placing her second son Robert on the throne in his stead. As a reward for his services Mauger was invested with the extensive county of Mortaigne as an addition to his patrimonial domains. Mortaigne, however, remained but a short time in the family, for his eldest son William, nicknamed the Warling, having been detected plotting against young Duke William, (afterwards known as "the Conqueror,") during his minority, was exiled to Apulia, and Mortaigne was dealt with as an escheat, and conferred upon the Duke's half-brother, Robert de Centeville."
