About Hamelin of Alternonn
Hamelin of Alternonn is presumed to be the son and heir of Eduni, lord of Alternonn, in Cornwall. He was in possession of the manor at the close of the Norman conquest. His right to the estate was confirmed by tenure by the Earl of Mortain, as recorded in the Domesday Book. At the time of that registry, the estate consisted of "two carves and a half, two servants, ten acres of woods and ten of pasture."
also known as Hamelin of Trelawny
Since the Domesday Book was written c.1086, we know that his date of death was after 1086.
