Fornjotur Kvenland, king (c130-c230)
and his father At this time we are in the realm of
history mixed with mythology and have gone through
ancestors who had lived, or supposedly lived on The
isle of Mann and in Norway, Denmark and Finland as well
as parts of Russia.Also see

This part of the page is not positive genealogy. Our
Norse beginnings tell us of some of the people who could
have been our ancestors but nothing is certain. Look at
it as our Mythology.

Godfrey (King) of DENMARK
Godfrey, Danish Godfred or Gudfred (died 810), king in
Denmark who halted the northward extension of
Charlemagne’s empire. He may have ruled over all
Denmark, but his centre of power was in the extreme
south of Jutland. There Hedeby became
an important station on the new Frankish trade route to
the Muslim states of the East via the Baltic Sea and the
Russian rivers. In 804, during a period of intense
Danish-Carolingian warfare, Godfrey destroyed the
Sorbian port of Reric (later Lübeck) in retaliation for
the Sorbs’ alliance with Charlemagne. The activity of
the port was transferred to Hedeby, greatly enhancing
its importance. In addition to campaigning successfully
against the forces of Charlemagne and his son Louis I
(the Pious), Godfrey began construction of the Danevirke,
a line of earthwork fortifications along the southern
base of the Jutland peninsula, south of Hedeby. He was
murdered while on campaign in Frisia.

Hialti de HAUTEVILLE
The genealogy shown above was taken from the geneology
Hialti de HAUTEVILLE With
additional information added if it was found. We are not
at all sure of it's reliability. The only fact we have
is that Hialti was of Viking origins and with him starts
our Norman genealogy.
Hialti de HAUTEVILLE
a Norseman is credited with founding the village of Hialtus
Villa (Hauteville) in the Cotentin of Normandy.
He lived from 852 to 888, only 36 years old at the time
of his death. He was my 32nd great grandfather.
Guiscard De Hauteville
Born in 880 at Hauteville, Manche, Basse-Normandie,
France. He married Fredistina de Hauteville. Guiscard
died in 971 at the age of 91.
Tancred De Hauteville
Born in 910 at Hauteville, Manche, France. His wife's
name is was Fresende of Normandy (1005 - 15-057).
He died at age 70 in 980 at Coutances, Normandy, France.
Tancred de Hauteville was an eleventh-century
Norman petty lord about whom little is known. His
historical importance comes entirely from the
accomplishments of his sons and later descendants. He
was a minor noble near Coutances in the Cotentin, but it
is not even certain which of the three villages called
Hauteville he held, though Hauteville-la-Guichard is
most often cited. He had 12 sons by his two wives,
and several daughters, almost all of whom left Normandy
for southern Italy and acquired some prominence there.
Gerard Tancred De Hauteville
He was born in 930 at Hauteville, Manche, Normany,
France and married Helisendis DeHauteville. His death is
reported to be in Normandy in 1001 at the age of 71.
Rabel Tancred Seigneur de Hauteville
He was born in 980 at Hauteville, Manche, Normany,
France. His wife is listed as Fresende Normandy De
Hauteville which was either a very popular name or an
error. His death at age 41 was at Coutances, Manche,
Basse-Normandie, France in 1021.
Tancreed cj Guiscard Seigneur de Hauteville
Listed as born in Normandy in 1000, he was married to
Frésende De Normandie. She was born in 1003, a daughter
of Richard II Le Bon (The Good) King of Normandy. Her
brother, Robert, Duke of Normandy, was the father of
William the Conquer. William the Conquer, sometimes
known as William the Bastard because of his illegitimate
birth, justified his invasion of Brittan by his being a
descendant of Richard's wife, Judith of Brittany,
claiming a right to the throne of Briton.
Tancreed died at the age of 41 at Coutances, Normandie, France
Richard II was my 28th great grandfather following
Frésende through my Chamberline line of ancestors and
also following Robert through our Cudworth line.
Gerard De Tankerville
Gerard was born in 1015 at Le Havre, Manche,
Basse-Normandie, France. Earl of Tankerville, he married
Helesinde de Normandie who had been born 05 Jan 1015 at

to Normandy and died there at the age of 60 in 1100.
John was born 1070 in England. He died in Suffolk,
England in 1130. I have not been able to gather any
other information about him.
Lord Richard Chamberlain
Richard was born in Normandy in 1120. He was appointed
Chamberlain to the King of England, probably King
Stephen. As such, he was the man closest to the king.

England. He was appointed Chamberlain, possibly to

and William in 1220.

spouse was Jane Gatesden who had been born at Southall,
Hertfordshire, , England on 20 Dec 1268. She died at 40

Sir Richard Chamberlaine
Richard was born at Wickham, Oxfordshire, , England in
1324. His wife was Jane Reyns of Clyfton Reynes, ,
Buckinghamshire, England and was born in 1329. By his
title we see that Richard had attained Knighthood. He
died at Stanbridge, Bedfordshire, England in 1391 and
she attained the age of 81 having died at Stanbridge,
Bedfordshire, England in 1410.
Sir Richard Chamberlaine
Richard was born at Shirburn, Oxfordshire, England in

In 1485 William was born at Prestbury, Gloucestershire,

ancestors of our American Fleming ancestors.

In 1522 Thomas was born at Prestbury, Gloucestershire,
England. He married Elizabeth Jane Luddington,
born at Kirkby, Yorkshire, England in 1530. Between 1558
