The Origin of the Morteynes

Author: Ellis, John M

Year published: 2003

Description / Notes:


The evidence is reviewed for the early origins of the Morteyne family, ancestors of the Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire families of that name. Robert de Morteyne was son of Warner de Codnor, who was probably a son of Warner de Lisoriis. Possible links to the Norman Counts of Mortain, and to the House of Boulogne, are explored.
