  Birth Notes:

Citing the Royal Genealogies Website, thepeerage.com has b. abt 1012. Wikipedia (Herleva) has abt 1003.

  Burial Notes:

Abbaye Notre-Dame de Grestain
From Wikipedia (Herleva):
According to Robert of Torigni , Herleva was buried at the abbey of Grestain, which was founded by Herluin and their son Robert around 1050. This would put Herleva in her forties around the time of her death. However, David C. Douglas suggests that Herleva probably died before Herluin founded the abbey because her name does not appear on the list of benefactors, whereas the name of Herluin's second wife, Fredesendis, does.

Harlette had a relationship with Herluin de Conteville Viscount of Conteville, Count of Crespon, son of Jean de Conteville Earl of Comyn, Sieur de Tonsburgh and Unknown, about 1031 in Conteville, Eure, Normandy, France. (Herluin de Conteville Viscount of Conteville, Count of Crespon was born about 1001 in Conteville, (Eure), Normandy, (France) and died about 1066.)

  Marriage Notes:

Wikipedia (Herluin de Conteville) has married in 1031. ThePeerage.com has between 1029 and 1035.

Harlette had a relationship with Robert I Duke of Normandy, son of Richard II Duke of Normandy and Judith of Brittany. (Robert I Duke of Normandy was born about 1008 in Normandy, France and died on 22 Jul 1035 in Nicaea, Bythnia, (Turkey).)
