In the Visitation of Derbyshire made in 1592 by William Flower Norroy and Robert Glover Somerset MS Harl 6592 at f 88 are the following notes concerning the church at Crich:

Crech in the High Peake the tenure of that noble familie of Musard

Hasculphus Musarde the 20 of the conqueroure did hould Creche & Staveley in the County of Darbie

-------------------- Birth before 1065 Hasculfus was born before 1065. Some say that he was born in England. Hascoit was the Domesday tenant of Staveley, and granted some land to Hervey of Ely ten years before he became Abbot of Ely (Hervey became combined Bishop & Abbot of Ely in 1109), and then became a monk at Ely during Hervey's tenure (1109-1133).

Jim Weber and other suggest that his father was probably either a son of Hascoit de St. James, or of his brother Peter de St. James. Jim Weber says that he is more likely the son of the brother (as Hascoit doesn't seem to have a son Hascoit listed for him)." --Jim Weber

Others suggest that his father was Roald d'Adoube "Musard". Could be.1,3

Peter of St. James was a companion of William the Conqueror in the invasion of England.4
