ChartsAncestors of Harriet Hanson Robinson
David de Rocliffe, whose ancestry and wife are unknown (or not traced here), had at least three sons. ". . .he was one of the hereditary Galtres forest officials. Between 1296 and 1305, he was a witness or juror at four inquisitions concerning forests in Yorkshire. In one of the inquisitions he is described as a “regarder” of Galtres forest. He was certainly not a knight."1
