"The surname of this family was originally le Blount, which had its own origin from the Blondi or Brondi, of Italy. Its patriarchs, the Counts of Guisnes, claimed alliance with most of the royal families of Europe and counted amongst their progenitors, the Emperors and Kings of France, the Kings of Denmark, the Counts of Flanders, and the Guelphs, Dukes of Bavaria. Rodolph, third Count of Guisnes (whose grandfather was Siegfred, the Dane, first Count, grandson of Harold V, King of Denmark) espoused Rosetta, daughter of Hugh, second Count St. Pol, and had three sons who accompanied the Conqueror into England, one of whom returned into Normandy, while the other two, Sir Robert and Sir William, remained and participated largely in the spoils of conquest -- Sir William obtaining several lordships in Lincolnshire, and Sir Robert no less than thirteen lordships in the county of Suffolk, of which Ixworth was the head of the feudal barony.
