  • ID: I31405
  • Name: William BLEWETT , of Salisbury, Sir 1 2
  • Sex: M
  • ALIA: William /Bluet/, of Salisbury, Sir
  • Birth: ABT 1174 in Salisbury, Wiltshire, England
  • Note:
    The following was researched by Michael Blewett, (http://bluettcom/blewett/EarlyEnglandResearch.pdf):

    William Bloet/Blewett, of Salisbury Manor, b. about 1185. Married daughter of Strongbow.

    Source: "William Marshal, Court, Career and Chivalry in the Angevin Empire 1147-1219, p. 139, by David Crouch, edited by David Bates, Pearson Education Ltd, Edinburgh Gate, Harlow, Essex (1953).

    Note: I believe that William, being the eldest son, was born about 10 years earlier. His being of Salisbury Manor somewhat matches the Visitation of Cornwall which has him as "Earl of Salisbury" and "Earl of Sarum" (Sarum is an ancient fortress (Cynric King of West Saxons captured it in 552 AD) outside of Salisbury). Even though the titles in the Visitation are incorrect they do indicate a connection with Salisbury.

    Note: Douglas Richardson in a post to SGM, 15 Dec 2002, believed (from memory) that the Bluets of Raglan, who eventually descended to Elizabeth who married James Berekely who thus acquired Raglan Castle, was descended from a younger brother of the Ralph Bluet who married Henry II's mistress, Nest verch Iorwerth. Douglas recommended reading the book ("William Marshal...") given as a source by Michael Blewett above. The Visitations of Cornwall & Devon, plus the information from Michael Blewett, presumably based on the book recommended by Douglas Richardson, tends to lead directly to Ralph Bluet, rather than his younger brother. @@check ancestry
