Notes about HUGH de LIMESI

A Hugh de Limesi occurs in a charter of c. 1070 for Sainte-Trinite de Rouen (Guerard, Cart., p.439). Sanders, 29."

HUGO DE LIMESI, born about 1010-1015, of Normandy, France
"Hugo de Toesni, surnamed de Limesi, from his Norman Seigneurie, son of Ralph de Toesni who flourished about 1011; b. about 1010-15 in Normandy; he is probably the Hugo de Limeisi who witnessed charters of the Monastery of Saint Trinity de Monte Rothomagi, Rouen, France, about the year 1060. He probably held a manor of the name of Limesi, adjacent to the holdings of the family of Toesni or Toni, from the Viscounts D'Arques in the Pays de Caux, in Normandy. His name is not with that of his son Ralph among the Norman knights who conquered England at the Battle of Hastings in 1066, and no proof exists showing that he was ever in England; but if he was alive in 1066, then there can be little doubt that some time before his death he followed his King to England. He must have died before the compilation of Domesday Book, as his name does not appear there either as a Limesi, Toesni or Todeni. Hugh de Limesi, it is claimed, m[arried] a sister of King William the Conqueror." (See page 186).

"[The birth of] Hugo de Limesi (1) could be about 1010-1015…. It is important to notice that the year 1010 is as far back as the birth of Hugo de Limesi can be safely adjusted." (See pages 101,198-199.)

Note: The supposed ancestry of Hugh de Limesi-back to Odin (born about 76 B.C.), King of Asgardia and the first kind of Scandinavia--is shown in pedigrees on pages 178-185.
