Elias Giffard, son of Elias Giffard and Ala (…), married Berta de Clifford, daughter of Richard FitzPonce and Maud of Gloucester.1

Elias Giffard was called "the Boy," probably to distinguish him from his father, and as such he is named with his wife Berta and his son Walter in the time of Abbot Hamelin, who was abbot from 1148 to 1179. Elias granted the church of Boyton to the monks for soule of Berta, his wife, and this grant was later confirmed by his son Walter. A later Helias Gifford tried to reclaim the grant, but the gift was confirmed by Gishop Josceline of Sarum and afterwards by Bishop John, who was acting during the vacancy of that see, 1184-1189.1
