About Siric de Olmstede (de Almesteda)
There is a generation gap between Siric and Martin de Olmstede. This portion of the line is a work in progress and should not be taken as factual until I find the proper documentation.
Contributions are welcome, but contributions with documented sources are respected.
Sigeric, or less formally, Siric is a name of German, Gothic, and English origins.
Siric is listed in the Doomsday Book and is listed as a holder of "Almesteda", the land from which the Olmstede family is named. See: [http://discovery.nationalarchives.gov.uk/SearchUI/Details?uri=D7296789]
