Name: William de RAMSEY , of Brittany 1 2
ALIA: William de /Ramsay/, of Brittany
Birth: ABT 1040 in Penthievre, Morbihan, Bretagne, France
Andrew, World Connect db=andwai, shows William Ramsay as son of Conan by Ermengarde of Anjou. However chronology would indicate that William was the younger son of Conan's son Eudes by Orguen, shown on a chart in CP. This William is the only William shown as a descendant of Conan Duke of Brittany.
Some say that he was a Duke of Brittany. CP doesn't give him a very important role in the chart; he looks like a younger son (born in the middle among about 8 others) of minor importance. He is given no surname or title on the chart. I am assuming, given that people believe he was of Brittany, that William de Ramsay is the William indicated on CP's chart.
