Battle of Hastings: 10/14/1066

Did Sir Roger Walsh's father come to England with William the Conqueror?

31st Great Grandfather

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:

  1. Did Sir Roger Walsh’s father come to England with William the Conqueror?
  2. Was Sir Roger Walsh’s father noble? Or did nobility start with Sir Roger Walsh?
  3. Was Sir Roger Walsh the Earl of Wanlip, like his grandson, Sir William Walsh, I?
  4. Was he made noble by William the Conqueror or William II? Or does nobility predate The Battle of Hastings?
