William Bertram
Hawise Balliol
"    From: http://www.patpnyc.com/conq/bertram.shtml
The Conqueror and His Companions
by J.R. Planché, Somerset Herald. London: Tinsley Brothers,1874

(William and his brother Robert)

" Robert Bertram, ki esteit torz." Rom. de Rou, l. 13,633. Here we have not only the baptismal name, but a personal description to assist us in identifying this companion of
the Conqueror. "Robert Bertram, who was crooked, but was very strong on horseback, had with him a great force, and many men fell before him." Notwithstanding these
particulars, and the fact that Bertram, surnamed "le Tort," or the crooked, is a real personage, who was Seigneur of Briquebec, near Valonore, who founded, before the
Conquest, the Priory of Beaumont-en-Auge, and on his death bed (imminente morte) made sundry donations to the Abbey of St. Stephen at Caen, about 1082, M. le Prévost
tells us it is commonly considered that it was not Robert Bertram who took part in the expedition, but William Bertram, probably his brother; and also that he was son or
grandson of Toustain de Bastenbourg, progenitors of the Lords of Briquebec and those of Montfort. Mr. Taylor presumes that both William and Robert were in the battle,
which I will not dispute; but I believe Wace to be right in this instance, as well as in many others which have been questioned but not disproved. Robert Bertram was evidently
dead before the compilation of Domesday; and Dugdale makes no mention of him, beginning his account of the family with William, Baron of Mitford, who, with the consent of
Hawise his wife, as also of Roger, Guy, William, and Richard, his sons, founded, temp. Henry I, the Priory of Brinkholm, Northumberland, for canons regular of the order of St.
Augustin. The branch of the Bertrams of Bothall I take to be the eldest, and Richard, the first of that line mentioned, to have been a grandson of Robert, as he held the barony
of Bothall in capite of the King, Henry II, by the service of three knights' fees, as his ancestors had done, "de veteri feoffemento," and confirmed to the monks of Loirmouth two
sheaves out of his lordship of Bothall, which they had of the gift of his ancestors. The male line of the Bertrams of Mitford failed in the reign of Edward II, and that of Bothall in
the reign following. Agnes, eldest sister and co-heir of Roger, the last Baron of Mitford, married Sir Thomas Fitzwilliam of Sprotborough, an ancestor of the Earls Fitzwilliam.

Anslech TURSTAIN DE BRIQUEBEC
Helloe  DE BEULAC
"    The first son of of Robert Turstain, was Baron of Briquebec in 943, and his grandson William, Baron of Briquebec, was the first to take the name of Bertrand, from whom
descended the Russell family of England, Dukes of Bedford.
In the rebellion of Rioulf of St. Savour angainst Duke William Longsword, in 933, Baron of Briquebec is metioned by Wace as one of the three Barons who alone remained
faithful to the Duke, by rendering him military service at the seige of Rouen; and on the assissination of that Prince he was appointed by the barons of Normandy and
Bretagny one of the three guardians to his young son, the Duke Robert, at a crisis which required a rare union of courage , firmness and discretion, and fulfilled his trust
during that long and troubling minority with the reputation to himself and and advantage to his country. It was in the time of Anslech that the Castle of Briquebec was first
erected, now one of the most beautiful and picturesque ruins in La Manche.

Rollo
ERMINA RAGNVALDSSON - Ermina
"    Rollo devatated Holland and appeared upon the Seine while Gottfried ravaged the valleys to Meuse and Saheldt. They burned and sacked Cologne, Bonn, Treves, Metz
and other cities, stabling their horses at Aix-La-Chapelle, in the Cathedral Church of Charlemagne. A Furore Normaunorum Libre nos Domine, came to be part of the
Catholic litany.
Hastings, at the head of a band of Nothmen, sacked Bordeaux, Lisbon and Seville,; defeated the Moorish conquerors of Spain at Cordova; crossed the straits in Morocco;
repossessed them; overan Tuscany; returned to France,where other chieftains had had various success against Charles the Bald, and embraced Christianity.
His name, the most dreaded of all the Vikings, was adopted by many successors. With safe winter quarters in Spain, they extended their ravages into Naples, Sicily and the
coasts of the Greek Empire. Anarchy, meanwhile, prevailing in France, in the autumn of 885 they laid siege to Paris. After a year of the siege was into [??] blockade, but at last
Charles the Fat, bought off the Northmen with 700 pounds of silver and a free passage to the Upper Seine and Burgandy. The most redoubtable of the Northmen afterward
was Hrolf, better known as Rollo, chiefain, of Norwegian parentage, first Duke of Normandy, and direct ancestor, in the sixth generation, of WILLIAM THE CONQUEROR. In
the words of Snorro Sturleson: "He was so mighty of a stature that there was no horse of strength and size to bear him. He was therefore always on foot, and was called the
Marcher." He ravaged Friesland and the countries watered by Schieldt, and took Rouen, St Le Bayeux and Evreux. From Charles the Simple he accepted the hand of a
daughter, together with a tract of Nuestrian territory north of the Seine, from Andalye to the sea [modern Normandy] , in exchange for Christian baptism and an oath of fealty
[912]. Thus arrested the Scandavain flood which had devestated France for more than a century. Rollo distributed among his followers the lands of Nuestria, to be held as
the Duke of Normandy. Thus were laid the foundations for the feudal system which William the Conqueror transplanted into England [1066-1087]. Few external traces of the
Scandinavians are to be found in modern Normandy. Yet for a time the Scandinavian gods divided with the Saviour the religious reverence of the people of that country.
Monasteries and cathedrals were built, however, with what magnificence their splendor remains attest. The Normans adopted the language of the vanquished province, but
greatly modified it. It was the langue d'oni [the language d'oc being south of the Loire], which became under Norman inspiration the peculiar medium of romantic poetry."

MITFORD CASTLE

Prior to the 1066 Norman conquest, the castle was held by Sir John de Mitford,
whose only daughter and heiress, Sybilla Mitford, was given in marriage by
William the Conqueror to the Norman knight, Richard Bertram.[4] In the late 11th
century, it was an earthwork fortress of the Bertram family, and of record as
William Bertram's oppidum in 1138. In 1215, it was seized by John de Balliol,
King of Scotland's troops.[2] In 1264, the castle was held by the third Roger
Bertram, but in that year, it was seized from him and committed to the custody of
William de Valence, 1st Earl of Pembroke, King Henry's half-brother.[3] It was
held by Alexander de Balliol, the son of John de Balliol and the elder brother of
King John, in 1275. During the rebellion in Northumberland set in the 1310s,
Mitford Castle was seized from the Valence family by Sir Gilbert de Middleton.[3]
In 1315, Mitford Castle was used by Sir Gilbert for kidnappings and as a prisoner
hold, when Ralph de Greystock seized de Middleton for treason
