"According to VCH Lancs VIII:300 (numerous contemporary citations in footnotes), Baines IV:400 and MichaelAnne's Guido's recent article in Foundations Vol. I #6, Ada, daughter of Thomas FitzGospatric and his wife Grace ______, was married first to William le Fleming (1150-1203) of Furness, Lancashire and was the mother of his sons Michael III le Fleming (ancestor of the Haringtons of Farleton, Lancashire) and Daniel le Fleming, before her marriage to William le Boteler, There is no mention of a marriage to a Gamel de Bolton. The citation for Ada's possible subsequent marriage to William le Boteler can be found in VCH Lancs VIII:300 footnote #70 my notes say.
I would add that William le Fleming's father Michael and William often appear in records as Michael and William de Furness which is likely the source of the surname you have given her. She should most likely be referred to as Ada de Workington as she was of Workington, Cumberland. Her brothers were Patrick de Culwen and Thomas de Workington."
Ada married William le Fleming, son of Sir Michael le Fleming and Christian of Stainton. (William le Fleming was born about 1150 in Aldingham, Lancashire, England and died in 1203 in Lancashire, England.)
