Hi Alicia,

This is interesting because I have been, all my life, been trying to find about my grandfather's family in the UK and this is the first time I see "de" Norfolk. My grandfather's name was Roger de Norfolk. I could never understand why the "de" and always thought that because he had migrated to South America he was using "de."

I am not sure if this site is still current, but I would love to contact someone who can give me some information. My great-grandfather was John James Howard and I believe his dates are 1861-1905.

I hope we can communicate.

Many thanks!

I have traced my mothers ancestry back to medieval times, these are mainly the Colmans of Norfolk and Yorkshire. My ancestor Lord John Colman of 1169 married Alicia de Norfolk of Flitcham, Norfolk. I have been trying to trace any other members of her family, all I've been able to find are possble links to Gilbert de Nofolk of 1135, who was Lord of Beeston in Norfolk, he had an unamed daugther of 1172 and a son  named Gilbert of 1170, also born in Flitcham, was Alicia a family member? The unamed daughter married Roger de Felbrigge whose daughter Maude married Sir Simon de Bigod (Knight).
