This family would seem to have been seated at Harescombe at an early date. It appeal's from the convention made between Roger the Prior of Lanthony and Roger Fitz Alan that Alan Fitz Mayn, his father, founded the chapel there circa 1150 (see post).

Roger Fitz Alan, to whom the church of Harescombe is, as shewn in that document, specially indebted, was of course the son of Alan Fitz Mayn, concerning whom, unfortunately, we have no information beyond the fact that he witnessed (vide ante p. 87) a grant by Walter de Hereford of lands, situated at Cerney, to St. Peter's Abbey, that he was founder of, or a benefactor to, the church of Harescombe, and that he also held a fee of the Bishop of Hereford called Mora, in connection with which manor his name has been preserved to our own days, " Mora Alani " \emdash or Alansinore, situated a few miles to the south of the city of Hereford. The name of his son, Roger Fitz Alan, occurs in the Liber Niger Scaccarii (Hearne's edition), among the knights of Ysabel, wife of Henry de Hereford, son of Earl Milo. This Henry de Hereford granted the church of Haresfield to the priory of Lanthony in 1161, his charter being afterwards insjjected and confirmed by R[obert] Bishop of Worcester. He was treacherously murdered by the Welsh previously to the year 1175, in which year William de Braose, junior, is recorded to have slaughtered many in revenge for his uncle's death, at Abergavenny Castle.


Alan married.
