Evidence is presented that the antecessor of the Anglo-Norman family of William and Hamo de Sancto Claro was Hubert de Sancto Claro, Domesday Book tenant of Robert of Mortain in Dorset, Somerset and Sussex. Evidence is also presented indicating Hubert’s father was Rannulf, vicecomes of William of Mortain in Sussex, Domesday Book tenant of Robert of Mortain, and lord at Saint-Clair-sur-Elle. Relationships with the de Horsteds and the de Villers are discussed.
