Re: Adam de Salzburg ---- noble opportunist with William I


My mother's paternal line is Salisbury with evidence pointing towards William Salisbury of Wales (1622 - 1675) who settled in Swansea, MA. Much has been written that he descends from the Salisburys of Llyweni.

So, I am doing some research on this line now and I had read about the Adam de Salzburg info.

I also read this in the Peerage Of England and thought it might be relevant and wondered your thoughts on this :

Among other powerful Normans, who accompanied Duke William in the conquest of England, was Walter de Ewrus, Earl of ROSMAR, to whom, in consideration of his valour, he gave the lordships of Salisbury and Arnesbury, in Wiltshire. This Earl before he came hither had issue Gerold, called Le Gros, afterwards Earl of Rosmar, father of William, surnamed Meschin, father of William, who died issueless.

But after his coming to England he had other sons, viz. First, Edward, ancestor to the ancient Earls of Salisbury. Second, Robert, ancestor to the Viscounts Hereford, and Earls of Essex.

Edward, eldest son, called De Saresberie was possessed, at the general survey, of large estates, among which were thirty- three lordships in Wiltshire. In 20 Hen. I. he was standard-bearer in the famous battle at Brenneville in Normandy. He left a son Walter; whose son and heir Patric was advanced to the dignity of Earl of Salisbury, by Maud the Empress.

Thoughts?

Re: Adam de Salzburg ---- noble opportunist with William I


This thread has piqued my interest as I am also a Salisbury through my mother's paternal line. My grandfather died in the 1930's, and with him all knowledge of his line until recently, when my niece traced him as the son of Christopher Salisbury, of Whitewater, Wisconsin, and Hannah Merrick, originally from rural New York. Christopher is said to be the son of Benjamin Salisbury, who in turn is also descended (with Daniel, Jonathan, and Cornelius in between) from William Salisbury (1622-1675). If my niece's information is correct, William's maternal line stretches back to a Joan de Beaufort (though not THE Joan Beaufort of Scotland) through several knights and ladies who could certainly be Normans (because we all came from somewhere else) and the paternal line eventually bumps into Welsh names that I can't pronounce. There was always an unconfirmed legend that our Salisburys were Welsh, and oddly, I saw it noted in at least one of the census records my niece found, though that record had to have been several generations after our arrival in America, indicating that they clung to that identity. Cheers
