  • ID: I20239
  • Name: Herbastus de Crepon
  • Sex: M
  • Birth: ABT 911 in Normandy, France
  • Occupation: Forester of Arques
  • Note: 1

    There appears to be considerable uncertainty as to the identity of Herbastus, shown here as progenitor of this family. It appears that he probably came from Denmark. Suggestions that he was a son of Harald 'Bluetooth', King of Denmark and Norway, appear to be wholly speculative. However, he must have been in a position of rank or influence given that his daughters married influential people. The daughters shown are as reported in various web sites (which are inconsistent with each other, not least in respect of their dates) but there is a suspicion that one or two of the women who have been identified as his daughters have been so merely because they were reported to have been "de Crepon" and are of this period. The position is further complicated by the fact that the different daughters are often confused with each other, different sources allocating their husbands differently between them.
