Osbert (Osbern) I DE GIFFARD of Elston in Orcheston St George, Wilts.

  • Born: Longueville-sur-Scie, Seine-Inferieure, Normandy, France
  • Died: Bef 1096, Brimpsfield, Cirencester, Gloucestershire, England

   Research Notes:

Domesday Book records land held by “Osbern Giffard” in Earley in Charldon Hundred in Berkshire; land in Wiltshire, including Elston, Orcheston and Stanton; in Dorset, Gold Hill; land in Bispesdone in Oxfordshire; Rockhampton Stoke Gifford Brimpsfield and Oldbury in Gloucestershire. Osbert’s parentage is not known, but the proximity of his landholding to that of Walter Giffard (future Earl of Buckingham) in Berkshire suggests a close relationship, as does his name which is similar to “Osbern” who was Walter Giffard’s paternal grandfather. [It is entirely possible] they were brothers. 1

   Marriage Information:

Osbert married Wevia.
