The Parish of Bracewell, with the adjoining hamlet of Stoke, was a part of the great fee of Roger of Poitou, who came with William I, in 1066, remaining in his hand at the time of the Domesday Survey. The two great Saxon lords, Ulchil and Archil, had had to give us these lordships to this powerful Norman invader; and it was probably not long after the date of the Domesday Survey that these manors were granted to Roger de Tempest. That this man was a Norman, the name will not permit us to doubt; that he was a dependent of Roger of Poitou is extremely probable; that he was, at all events, possessed of these manors in the reign of Henry I is absolutely certain. The name Tempest, whatever its origin, seems to have been venerated by the family; as in the two next centuries, when local appellations became almost universal, they never chose to part with it. It is also alluded to in their armorial bearing."
