1087– William II (William Rufus or William the Red) is crowned King of England, and reigns until 1100.  William died after being struck by an arrow while hunting, a stone known as the “Rufus Stone” marks the spot where William II supposedly fell.

Most of our Lordship titles are documented at Domesday which was shortly before William II’s death , with a large selection pre-dating the 11th Century.
