About Robert le Grandbois d'Estouteville, Lord of Cottingham

Additional Curator's Notes:

There were at least five generations of d'Estouteville men named Robert. In order to keep the generations straight the roman numerals I through V have been added to the names. These men did not use such numbers. They used toponyms and titles to clarify who each Robert was. Those Roberts numbered by this curator are:

  • Robert "Estout Le Danois" d'Estouteville, numbered i
  • Robert ler Grandbois d'Estouteville, Baron of Cottingham, numbered II
  • Robert d'Estouteville III, Lord of Cottingham, numbered III
  • Robert de Stuteville IV, Sheriff of Yorkshire, Lord of Cottingham, numbered IV
  • Robert de Stuteville, V

Hopefully, this will prevent mis-merging the generations without the need to lock profiles. Maria Edmonds-Zediker, Volunteer Curator, Nov. 25, 2014
