Dear Rosie,

Speak and ye shall find !

Thanks for being so fast on the draw. This connection has a noticeable
solid factor: the holding in Cowesby, Yorkshire. This is found according to
CP in the holdings of Osmund's son William de Stuteville (d. 1259), and
William's grandson Sir Jordan Foliot (d. 1299). It evidently passed through
a coheiress to another family: it does not appear to have fallen to the lot
of Margery Foliot (d. 1349), wife of Sir Hugh Hastings, while Gressenhall,
Elsing and other manors did.

It would appear that K-R is in error in making 'Roger' the father of
Isabel, heiress of Gressenhall. This is probably based on her being called
Isabel 'fitz Roger', after her father William fitz Roger, also (according to
Blomefield) called William de Gressenhall, of Gressenhall and Elsing, Norfolk
[see CP under Huntingfield; also MC 5th ed., Huntingfield].

Good show !
