    (BCP) MEANS THIS PERSON IS AN ANCESTOR OF BRUCE COOLEY PUSCH.(AS IS EVERYONE ELSE ON THIS TREE WITH A SURNAME FOLLOWED BY (P) OR (L).

    (P) =PROOF... THIS PERSON IS LISTED ON AN APPLICATION APPROVED BY THE MAYFLOWER SOCIETY. (L ) =LINE...THIS PERSON IS BELIEVED TO BE IN THE DIRECT LINE BLOOD LINE.

    (D) MEANS THIS PERSON HAS LIVING AMERICAN DESCENDENTS.

    ALSO, SOME SOURCES SAY WILLIAM WAS THE FATHER OF MAUD (NOTES) DUCHESS BRET PRINCESS (L) ENGLAND (SHOWN AS HIS GRANDDAUGHTER HERE) AND OF WILLIAM (NOTES) OF NOTTINGHAM (L) PEVERELL BUT HE IS NOT SHOWN SO HERE BECAUSE SHOWING MORE THAN ONE SET OF PARENTS COULD CAUSE MY "FAMILY TREE" PROGRAM TO MALFUNCTION.

    Good Morning Alton,

    Thanks again for even more good genealogical information.

    As I said, I will post the Bruce information as notes on my RootsWeb page for ROBERT II (NOTES) LE BRUS DE BRUS (L) DE BRUSE and now I will also post this new information with your Norman Ancestors at Hastings posted as notes on my RootsWeb page for WILLIAM I (NOTES) (BCP) KING OF (L) ENGLAND and your Counselors to King John posted on my RootsWeb page for JOHN (NOTES) LACKLAND I KING OF (L) ENGLAND.

    Thanks again for your help on all this and all this well researched information.

    I hope to hear from you again one day and in the meantime, good luck with all your genealogical efforts.

    Bruce

    Hi Bruce -

    Glad I could be of some help and that what I have is of interest. As you mentioned, trying to keep things straight so far back is a real challenge, especially with limited resources. But as you can see, I tried my best to utilize the most authoritative sources I could find without relying on what often is unreferenced Rootsweb pages (with unproven data) or other shaky on-line sources, with info coming from who-knows-where.

    And if there are family ancestries that you want to see from that long list of noble sur-names I previously provided, let me know. For your info, I have attached my file list of Battle of Hastings and Magna Carta/Counselors to King John-related ancestors - you probably have many of the same in yours. All files are in narrative format as was the last one. (and if I had already sent these lists at one time, please excuse my forgetfulness)

    Have a good New Year

    OUR NORMAN ANCESTORS AT THE BATTLE OF HASTINGS IN 1066
    For our ancestors Mayflower Passenger Richard More & Rev. William Skepper
    ------------------------------------
    The Battle of Hastings, on October 14, 1066 in England, in which Norman forces from France under Duke William defeated the Saxon army, was the most important event in early English history. This battle brought 11th century Norman French rule to England.
    On 25 December 1066, Duke William of Normandy was crowned King William I of England in Westminster Abbey.

    The men noted here were ancestors of Richard More and William Skepper and were generally proven to have been at the Battle of Hastings. For their Hastings service, most received significant lands and titles in England from The Conqueror.

    The list of persons actually known to have been at the Battle of Hastings on the side of William the Conqueror is stated in the 2nd edition of Cokayne's Complete Peerage, vol. Xii, Part I, Appendix pp. 47-48, as part of Appendix L.
    Numbers 1-12 were recorded by William of Poitiers (c.1020-1090).
    Number 13 is portrayed in a battle scene in the Bayeux Tapestry.
    Number 14 and 15 were named by Orderic Vitalis (1075-c.1142).
    Number 16-19 were in William's army and almost certainly at Hastings (16 named by William of Poitiers, 17-19 portrayed in the Bayeux Tapestry) but have no direct statement that they were actually at the Battle of Hastings.
    Number 20 is stated by Orderic to have taken part in fighting in the English war before William became King.
