A slight variation:
Gerald de Tancarville, recorded as Geraldus and Geraldus is said by the Duchess of Cleveland, in her valuable compilation of data on many Anglo-Norman families, entitled ?The Battle Abbey Roll,? to have been Baron de Tancarville, toward the end of the tenth century.? This would make him the son and successor [of] Rabel, who was a son of Tancred, founder of this family in Normandy in 912 a.d.
Gerald de Tancarville, was father of Rabell, and may have had a younger son Geraldus.
Rabel II, de Tancarville, son of Gerald de Tancarville, lived in the time of the Duke Robert of Normandy. This Duke, ?Robert the Magnificent,? also called ?Robert the Devil,? reigned in Normandy from 1027 to 1035. He was the father of William The Conqueror, whose mother was Arlette, daughter of a tanner in Falaise, Normandy.
Rabel II had two sons. Ralph de Tancarville and Almeric, who is known as Almeric d'Abitot, as having a lordship from the name of it's church, Saint Jean d'Abitot. Almeric was the ancestor of the Washburn family.
