About William FitzAnsculf de Picquigny, Lord of Dudley Castle

from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dudley_Castle:

"It is thought one of the Conqueror's followers, Ansculf de Picquigny, built the first {Dudley] castle in 1070.[2] and that his son, William Fitz-Ansculf, was in possession of the castle when it was recorded at the time of the Domesday Book of 1086. Some of the earthworks from this castle, notably the 'motte', the vast mound on which the present castle keep now sits, still remain. However the earliest castle would have been of wooden construction and no longer exists[3]."
