Eustace, son of Turstin the Fleming and Agnes,[1] was born say 1075[2] and died after 1100.[3]

Nothing is known of his wife.

The following document records the deed of land by Eustace to St. Peter Monastery.[4] See the much later document referencing this deed on the page of Eustace de Whitney.

Sciant praesentes et futuri, quod ego Eustachius Filius Turstini Flandrensis, ad petitionem Agnetis matris meae, dedi Sancto Petro et fratribus de Gloucestria unam hidam in Pencumba quae vocatur Suthenhale, solutam et quietam ab omni re; et per scriptum istud super altare Sancti Petri de Gloucestria posui.
Hujus rei testes sunt, Turstinus Flandrensis frater meus, Willelmus presbiter ejusdem villae, Willelmus de Stabulo, Wymundus, Rogerius de Kaillewy, Rogerus Castel, etc.

The witnesses of this thing are Turstin the Fleming my brother, William a priest of said Town, William de Stabulo, Wymund, Roger de Kaillewy, Roger Castel, etc.

Children of Eustace are not known.
