Nicholaa de la Haye (between 1150 and 1156 to 1230) was the eldest daughter and co-heiress of Richard de la Haye (d. 1169), a Lincolnshire lord, and a descendant of the pre-Conquest Lord Colswain of Lincolnshire. Nicholaa's first husband was William fitz Erneis (d. 1178). Before 1185 she married Gerard de Camville, son and heir of Richard de Camville, a royal official and admiral of the fleet of King Richard I when he sailed to the Holy Land on the Third Crusade. She inherited the office of castellan of Lincoln castle and her husbands generally carried out the duties of that office by her right. At times, however, she was directly in charge of the castle, most notably in 1191, when Gerard was with Prince John at Nottingham and Nicholaa held out against a month-long siege, and in 1215–17, when she directed the defense of Lincoln against the rebel barons in 1217. She was aided by William Marshal and William Longespée, 3rd Earl of Salisbury in the latter endeavour. She also served as High Sheriff of Lincolnshire for five months in 1216 by the appointment of King John of England.
