Do you really have to have a different reference for every single holding? They are all from the same book anyway, does it matter that much to have to correct page number? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 129.21.250.74 (talk) 16:04, 24 February 2009 (UTC)

Fine Article[edit]

This is a truly fine article. Congratulations to all! As to the criticism of the IP - to create an IP just to make a minor criticism is corwardly and laughable and does not command any respect. If that is the worst you have to say why don't you use your real identity to comment? Mugginsx (talk) 13:01, 2 February 2012 (UTC)

Kipling[edit]

William of Warenne is mentioned in the Kipling poem "The Land" (from "A Diversity of Creatures"). He is mentioned as having been given the River-Field as part of his land grant from Duke William following the Norman Conquest and part of the poem describes his relationship with a local family whose roots go back to at least the 3rd Century.
