m firstly ---. The name of Amaury´s first wife is not known, but the chronology of his son dictates that he must have been born from an earlier marriage of his father.
m secondly as her fifth husband, ISOLDA Pantulf, widow firstly of HUGH de Montpinçon, secondly of WALTER de Tattershall, thirdly of WALTER de Baskerville, fourthly of HENRY Bisset, daughter of WILLIAM [IV] Pantulf of Breedon-on-the-Hill, Leicestershire & his wife Joan de Goldington (-after 1267).

The Complete Peerage states that her son and heir Robert de Tattershall undertook payment of her debts and orders were made in 1223 and 1228 which would normally connote her death, but that in 1267 she was still prosecuting her rights of dower against her grandson Robert de Tattershall. Amaury & his first wife had one child:
