Northmann

 

The owner or Ruler of Thrybergh pre the Doomsday book is said to be Norman?[ Northmann] [ see below ] who was the main landholder in Thrybergh, Dalton, and Brinsworth when Edward the Confessor was on the throne. Normann son of Ulf was a grandson of Alwine and his grandfather was Farthegn who once ruled Yorkshire.

The above seems to be accurate on face value, however do we have the right Northmann, and do we have the right parentage.

 

The Doomsday Books does contain discrepancies which are noted by many historians, and Northmann entries are not  well documented, as indeed he is not well documented elsewhere.

 So lets look at what we have.

 

 

In Search of Northmann

 

The name can be found back with Northmann brother of Leofric the Earl of Mercia both sons of Leofwine in the time of Cnut 1043.

The place name Normanby one such being in Doncaster is derived from Northmann,   being the Danish spelling of Northman.

 

There are 1,872 entries for Northmann in the Doomsday book. [ Not all the same Northmann ]

 

There is a letter of St. Anselm to William prior of the canons de Mont St. Eloy asking him to receive an Englishman named Northmann who belonged to a church

 

Northmann held lands that were passed on to Rozelin, Picot, and Malger who all held of William De Perci.

 

William De Perci gained lands from Northmann son of Ulf which seem to lie in the West Riding and Northmann son of Maelculumban whose lands were mainly in the East Riding, but he did hold land in the Ainsty of York.

 

Then we have a Northmann antecessor of 15 acres at Boxted of Ralph of Limesy

Also a Northmann Fitz Tancred a Freeman who are believed to be one and the same person!

 

Northmann son of Ulf owned 41/2 caractures in the ainsty of York

 

Concerning Thorir's land in old Summerby in the year King Edward died Northmann took it in mortgage, the men of the Wapenteke do not know though what pact because they have not seen him do any service for it.

[ Again which Northmann is this ]

 

Here we have a possible breakthrough from "Conquest, Anarchy, and Lordship: Yorkshire, 1066-1154 - Page 69"
by Paul Dalton where it states that" Edgar the Aetheling was aided in an escape by Alwine Fitz Northmann who may be the same man as the Alwine whom Tison succeeded in several Yorkshire Estates."

The Northmann we are looking for is named as the grandson of Alwine [ We hope correctly ]

 

Now Alwine, Farthegn, and Tonni held land in Appleton from Wulfbert in 1066Prior to 1066. The name Alwine occurs several times in the doomsday book.

Farthegn  was a"King's thegn". Farthegn's had two sons named Alwine and Tonni both sons  are noted as holding land in the Doomsday Book. .Alwine had a son named Uhtred and a grandson named Northmann.

 

Now we go to North Cave in Yorkshire and find that in the Doomsday Book we have listed as landholders

Our Northmann

 

Northmann then held Thrybergh prior to 1066 in the time of Edward who died in January of that year, the throne then being claimed by Harold. In October of 1066 Harold was killed in the battle of Hastings and William became King.

Northmann apparently still held Thrybergh after this event and Yorkshire was still not quite under Norman rule, and in 1069 William had to retake the city of York from the Danes and  English, and the harrying of Yorkshire followed. Many of the existing Yorkshire land owners were replaced and in 1086 William de Perci is given large estates in Yorkshire including Thrybergh, and Rozelin becomes lord of the manor at Thrybergh under de Perci.

William de Perci gained much of his Yorkshire holdings after 1069

 

What we need to learn is the year Northmann lost Thrybergh, Dalton, and Brinsworth, and why.

Northmann can also be found at nearby Swinton, and Wickersley in the Doomsday book.

 

Farthegn  was a"King's thegn". Farthegn's had two sons named Alwine and Tonni both sons  are noted as holding land in the Doomsday Book. .Alwine had a son named  Ulf ? Ulf had sons named Arnketil, and  Northmann. The names are found in over a thousand entries in the Doomsday book including many holdings throughout Yorkshire.  However some of those entries are different people with the same name, but  there is no doubt they had been of great note prior to the conquest as land owners.
