Need for clarification[edit]

There seems to be need for some serious research to clarify matters here. The manor seems to have belonged to the de lacy family for some time after the conquest before the Say family took over. although the implication here seems to be that the latter were the the first Normans to hold it.

Assuming "Wild Edric" actually existed and is documented, he would have had to be well over 100 years old when he mounted resistance to the Normans, which seems implausible. Sjwells53 (talk) 17:16, 31 August 2010 (UTC)

I just checked and Domesday definitely says that Roger de Lacy held the manor at that time (1086/7) and the previous, i.e. Anglo-Saxon, landholder was Aldred, brother of Siward. Sjwells53 (talk) 17:34, 31 August 2010 (UTC)
