Two versions exist of the Peverel origin.

1. Ingelrica Maud was the mistress of DUKE WILLIAM and their illegitimate son was called William. Afterwards, Maud married Ranulph who then took the surname Peverel. Ingelrica Maud's legitimate son Pagan, and illegitimate son William, both took the surname Peverel.

2. Ranulph's wife became the mistress of King William, and their illegitimate son took the name of her husband's family, that is Peverel.

Version 1 seems more likely. Maud's son William held Nottingham Castle (1067), so could not have been a son by Maud's marriage to Ranulph (1072). He would therefore have been the son of William, and as he would have been born c. 1048, would have been born while William was DUKE OF NORMANDY. This version is here assumed.
