Name: Osbert (Osbern) I GIFFARD , Lord of Brimpsfield 1
ALIA: Osborne /Gyffarde/
Birth: ABT 1030 in Longueville-sur-Scie, Seine-Inferieure, Normandy, France
Death: BEF 1096 in Brimpsfield, Cirencester, Gloucestershire, England 1
Before 1096 Elis I had succeeded his father Osbern Giffard, the Domesday tenant of Brimpsfield, Stoke, Rockhampton, Elston, Orcheston, etc. [Complete Peerage V:639 note (c)]
The following post-em from Mike Lysell, mlysell AT comcast.net, (which I believe Mike posted under the wrong Osbern), shows who one source has for Osbern's father (I have changed to agree with Mike's source):
Jim - Carl Boyer in "Medieval English Ancestors of Certain Americans", page 104, shows Osbert (Osbern Bolbec) Giffard as the first son of Walter Giffard, born 1010. He shows a birth date of about 1040 and a date of death as "by 1095". He states "the Lord of Brimsfield, Gloucestershire, he was a Domesday tenent there in 1086 as well as in Stoke, Rockinghamshire, Elston and Orcheston [CP, 5:639c].
At this time, I've not tried to confirm this through other sources. I thought you'd be interested.
Boyer cites Vernon M. Noor’s 'Some Early English Pedigrees' as a source.
Note: CP appears to be correct in that the town is certainly now known as Brimpsfield (with a "p"), and was entered as "Brimesfelde" in the Domesday Book.
