Name: Mr. Seigneur de CORMEILLES
Birth: ABT 1040 in Cormeilles, Eure, Normandy, France
CORMEILLES, DE CORMELIIS
Cormeilles: Eure, arr. Pont Audemer, cant. Cormeilles.
In 1086 the abbey of Cormeilles held the church of 'Anne' in Andover hundred, Hampshire, the manor of which was held by Goslin de Cormeilles in chief. The abbey was founded by William FitzOsbern; and it seems clear that Goslin had been a follower and tenant of his, his tenure becoming one in the chief after the forfeiture of William's son, Roger earl of Hereford in 1075. It can be deduced, therefore, that he took his name from this Cormeilles and not from Cormeilles-en-Vexin.
The same deduction can be made for Ansfrid de Cormeliis, a tenant-in-chief in Herefordshire in 1086.
