  • Notes 
    • "Mr. Edgar Taylor, in his notes to Wace, says 'Geffery de Tregoz would, according to Dugdale, be the probable contemporary of the Conquest.' This Geoffrey must be an earlier Geoffrey de Tregoz than the one mentioned by Dugdale, who was the son of William de Tregoz, and could not have been old enough in 1066 to have fought at Senlac, where Wace tells us that "he who then held Tregoz" killed two Englishmen, transfixing one with his lance and cleaving the skull of the other with his sword, and galloping back unwounded by the enemy." This Geoffrey may have been the father of William de Tregoz.

~The Conqueror and His Companions, p. 298

      From The Topographer and Genealogists, 1853, Vol. II, p. 124:

"William de Tregoz, who flourished in the reign of Henry I and whom the great Pipe Roll of 31 Henry I 1130/1 makes much mention" of William and " proves William Tregoz to have been a man of much consequence, and to have been concerned in Norfolk, Essex, Berks, and Lincolnshire; and moreover, that he had the lands of William Peverell, of London, in farm. Tregoz married and had issue, and very probably that Agnes Tregoz, whom we find living in 9 Richard I as concerned in Norfolk and Essex, was his widow. His issue were apparently three sons and one daughter."
