About Reinbald De Presbyter (The Elder)
Praters descended from "Reinbald de Presbyter" ...( Reinbald Prater the Elder)
The first Chanceller of England under King William, duke of Normandy
We are not certain where our ancestor was born or where he died but we do know that he was a Presbyter who was probably already established in Wales before the Norman Conquest. We know that he had ties with Norman Lords because of the properties his sons gained as "spoils" in the Conquest. Rienbald de Presbyter (Prater) was named Chancellar of England in 1066, so we can assume this family was very well connected with the Norman Nobility. I think that he was very closely connected to Gerald of Windsor and other Welch Princes who also had Norman blood lines.
