I invite anyone interested to follow these projects, and if you have a special research area in one of these families, please contact me (or the project manager if it is not one of mine).
Here are the subprojects under the umbrella so far; more to come!
Anglo-Norman families: Earls of Chester
Anglo-Norman families: Earls of Norfolk (Bigod)
Anglo-Norman families: Seigneurs of Tosny (de Tosny / Toeni / Toni)
Boone and de Bohun Family Project
Earls of Arundel
Early Normans c.790-1066
Henry I 's children
Les Ducs de Normandie 911-1106
Magna Carta Sureties and Witnesses
The Domesday Book: England in 1085
The Third Crusade
The d'Aubigny and de Albini families of Norman England, Lords of Arundel and Belvoir
My family goes back to some of these, for sure the de Bohun family and I am following that project. Thanks for the information. Toeni sounds familiar as well. I have the information printed out from my grandmother or great aunt and I'll check which families are listed.
Okay, found the sheet. My ancestress, Freelove Baldwin, who married Stephen Stowe, the Martyr of Milford, is a direct descendant of the Bruen, de Tony, de Bohun, Beauchamp, and likely other Anglo-Norman families. Her great grandmother was Mary Bruen who came to America and married John Baldwin of Milford.
