Did Sir Roger Walsh's father come to England with William the Conqueror?
31st Great Grandfather
SIR ROGER WALSH, I
BIRTH 1078 • Wanlip, Leicestershire, England
To date, that is as far back as I have been able to travel with my direct Welch grandfathers. The Battle of Hastings was October 14, 1066, and the date when William the Conqueror started taking over England. I hope to someday learn:
- Did Sir Roger Walsh’s father come to England with William the Conqueror?
- Was Sir Roger Walsh’s father noble? Or did nobility start with Sir Roger Walsh?
- Was Sir Roger Walsh the Earl of Wanlip, like his grandson, Sir William Walsh, I?
- Was he made noble by William the Conqueror or William II? Or does nobility predate The Battle of Hastings?
