About Oslac, Ealdorman of the Isle of Wight

Osburga is described as the daughter of Oslac, pincerna (Chamberlain) of Æthelwulf's royal household. Oslac is described as a descendant of the fictitious Jutish kings Stuf and Wihtgar, and is also ascribed Gothic ancestry. Asser may not however have been familiar with Bede,who writes that the Jutish inhabitants of the Isle of Wight- descendants of Stuf (although Wihtgar was probably fictitious)-were "destroyed", so it is unlikely that Oslac was their descendant. Oslac and Osburga are known to have held Arreton Manor on the Isle of Wight. Oslac is described as "The Chief Butler of England", although it is uncertain what this title implies. Asser clearly identifies "Gothic" as synonymous with "Jute", although this is also uncertain. Ironically Alfred's Jutish blood and descent from the Isle of Wight kings more likely came from his father's side, via the sister of King Arwald, wife of Egbert I of Kent

966. Thored, Gunnar's son, ravages Westmorland Oslac succeeds to ealdormanry of Northumbria

The Anglo-Saxon Chronicle reports that Thored, Gunnar's son, ravaged Westmorland (part of British Strathclyde), and in the same year Oslac succeeded to the ealdormanry. This annal may be misdated, like the 964 annal on Edgar's marriage: while Oslac appears fairly regularly in charters after 966 (from 968 to 975), he also seems to witness charters as ealdorman earlier, in 963 and 965. Oslac was exiled in 975.

--------------------

Oslac Pincerna" of king Æthelwulf, 9th century. - -All that is known of Oslac appears in the work of Asser (and sources depending on him), who, identifying Oslac as the maternal grandfather of Ælfred, assigns Oslac an ancestry that is clearly quite mythical ["Mater quoque eiusdem Osburh nominabatur, religiosa nimium femina, nobilis ingenio, nobilis et genere; quae erat filia Oslac, famosi pincernae Æthelwulfi regis. Qui Oslac Gothus erat natione; ortus enim erat de Gothis et Iutis, de semine scilicet Stuf et Wihtgar, duorum fratrum et etiam comitum, qui, accepta potestate Uuectae insulae ab avunculo suo Cerdic rege et Cynric filio suo, consobrino eorum, paucos Britones eiusdem insulae accolas, quos in ea invenire potuerunt, in loco, qui dicitur Guuihtgaraburhg, occiderunt. Ceteri enim accolae eiusdem insulae ante aut occisi erant aut exules aufugerant." Asser, c. 2 (p. 4)]. He is otherwise unknown, unless he was the same man as the Oslac who appears as a witness in a charter of king Æthelbert in 858 ["Ego Oslac consentio & subscribo" Cart. Sax. 2: 101 (#496)]. If this is Æthelwulf's father-in-law, he must have been fairly old when he signed the charter. Asser's description of Oslac as a "Goth" is unusual, but of uncertain significance. Stevenson suggested that Asser was identifying the Goths and the Jutes, and gave other examples in which the Goths and Jutes had been confused [Stevenson, notes to Asser, 166-170]. Keynes and Lapidge state that "Asser is probably trying to convey the information that Oslac was ultimately of Danish extraction." [Nelson (1991), 51, citing Keynes-Lapidge, 230 n. 8 (the latter not seen by me)]. Nelson expands on this, stating that "if Asser tells his readers that Alfred's maternal grandfather Oslac was of Scandinavian origin, he is presumably making Oslac's grandson more acceptable to local and contemporary Scandinavians." [Nelson (1991), 52]. Another possibility is that the supposed descent from Stuf and Wihtgar means that Oslac came from the Isle of Wight. In the will of Ælfred [Thorpe (1865), 484-492 (with modern English translation); Cart. Sax., 2: 176-180 (#553)], land in the Isle of Wight was bequeathed to his youngest son (Eaderingtune, identified as Arreton, Isle of Wight) and youngest daughter (Welig, identified as Wellow, Isle of Wight) [Nelson (1991), 49, who cites Keynes-Lapidge (1983) 175, 177, 319, 321 --------------------

-------------------- Oslac was from Hampshire or the Isle of Wight. He was the royal cupbearer.

Oslac, the famous butler of king Ethtelwulf, which Oslac was a Goth by nation, descended from the Goths and Jutes, of the seed, namely, of Stuf and Whitgar, two brothers and counts; who, having received possession of the Isle of Wight from their uncle, King Cerdic, and his son Cynric their cousin, slew the few British inhabitants whom they could find in that island, at a place called Gwihtgaraburgh; (3) for the other inhabitants of the island had either been slain, or escaped into exile.

Princerna Regis of England. Oslac of Hampshire was a Jute [Transcribed by Douglas J. Potter The Catholic Encyclopedia, I-XIV (New York: Robert Appleton Company, 1908-1912), Vol I, Alfred the Great].

He was born circa 790. Said to be a descendant of Wihgar, nephew of Cerdic, who ruled the Isle of Wight early in the 6th Century. King's Cup Bearer [Peter Townend, editor, Burke's Genealogical and Heraldic History of the Peerage, Baronetage, and Knightage, One Hundred and Fifth Edition (London: Burke's Peerage Limited, MCMLXX (1970)), pg. xlix]. -------------------- Oslac was the butler to King Ethelwulf an important position at that time. He was also the Lord of the manor of Arreton.

Arreton is a village and civil parish in the central eastern part of the Isle of Wight, England. It is about 3 miles south east of Newport

Arreton Manor Arreton Manor apparently has a history dating back to at least 872 AD. This fact is recorded in the Domesday Book. It was also noted in the will of King Alfred the Great in 885. Previously, it had been owned by his mother, Osburga, and her father Oslac, Chief Butler of England. The manor was owned by King Edward before the Norman conquest.

After 1086, it was owned by William the Conqueror. In 1100, it was granted to Richard de Redvers, and was part of an endowment given to the monks of the Quarr Abbey by his son Baldwin in 1131.

The manor was farmed by the monks in Quarr Abbey for about 400 years until 1525. In 1525, it was leased by Abbot William Rippon to a parish landholder, John Leigh.

The manor was rebuilt between 1595 and 1612. Charles I visited the manor several times.

Arreton Manor was leased to several different farmers until 1628, when it was granted by the king to trustees to settle the king's debts to the City of London. It was then bought by two merchants from the trustees. It was later bought by Lord Culpeper (Thomas II), Governor of the Isle of Wight. On Lord Culpeper's death, his daughter Lady Katherine acquired the property. Lady Katherine married Lord Fairfax and it stayed in the Fairfax family for 230 years.

It is claimed that Queen Mary often visited Arreton Manor. Queen Victoria supposedly planted a conifer on the south lawn of Arreton Manor.

The house was purchased from Count Slade by Jeanne Schroeder in 1987; she sold it to a family named Clark, who closed the house to the public in 1999; it was subsequently bought by Andy and Julis Gray-Ling in 2004, and re-opened to the public.

It is currently on the market again.

The cellar of the house contains concrete block bearing a Rosy Cross, and such a cross was previously included in a stained glass window. This may suggest that Rosicrucians met at Arreton, probably within living memory.

Arreton Manor plays host to a Living History display by the Church, State and Household group every August.
