On this day 26th September

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.
