Name: Berenger Giffard
Change Date: 11 JUN 2002
I [RH] have assumed that Berenger?s father Osbern Bobec is the one shown here.
?One can find a certain number of families in the present Landed Gentry descended from the gentry - and in a few instances, the nobility - of the Middle Ages, of whom a good proportion still hold land which their mediaeval ancestors held, or did so until recent years. GIFFARD of Chillington and GIFFARD formerly of Rushall descend in the direct male line from a Sire de Longueville whose son accompanied William the Conqueror; the family have held the lands of Chillington since about 1178.?
