  • Note:

    Turold of Bucknell, Sheriff of Lincoln was cognatus, or cousin, of Earl Algar of Mercia, son of Lady Godiva. He was evidenced in Domesday Book as a benefactor of Crowland Abbey, to which he gave a parcel of land at Bucknell. He married N. N. Malet, daughter of Willelm Malet, seigneur de Graville and Elise Crespin. He gave further land in Bucknell to the abbey of St Nicholas before 1079 in Angers. He died before 1079.
    (K. S. B. Keats-Rohan, "Antecessor Noster: The Parentage of Countess Lucy Made Plain", Prosopon: Newsletter Of The Unit For Prosopographical Research #2 (May 1995): A spurious charter of Crowland Abbey made Turold of Bucknall (the Sheriff) the founder of the priory of Spalding as a cell of Crowland. It also called Turold brother of Godiva countess of Mercia, but subsequently described Godiva's son Earl Algar as Turold's cognatus (cousin).)
    Claimed as ancestor of the Thorolds of Marston - see Richard Thorold m Joan Hough, in this file.
