Jim if I may ask you another question, you mentioned that Sir Gerald Roche was the liege lord of David Synad, then would it be right to assume that the Synads or Synots would have been granted lands after the Norman Conquest in the counties where their liege lords obtained grants. The natural process would be that the major noble would be granted property and then he would grant some of this to his vassals in this case Synots. But the Synots in the Doomesday were supposed to have lands in Somerset and Lincolnshire but the Roches got their "rewards" in Bedfordshire?
There is a Synod mentioned in the Doomesday but I discounted him because he got grants in Dorset.
So I do not think the Synod in the Doomesday is related.
Another question you might know the answer to - I have looked at the Doomesday online, in the "people mentioned section" there are a list of names for each settlement in each county, they are listed in the translated version in alphabetical order, would I be right to think that it has been put together this way in "modern times" and did not appear this way in the original Doomesday Book? this has coused a dilemna because it has separated the name John de les Roches from his vassals which might have given me a clue as to the first name of the de Synot that was bound to him.
If I was pay for a copy of the original of John de les Roches entries would his vassals be likely to follow his entry?
