You may have trouble finding any information in England
during the Roman Conquest. The first census of England
was taken in 1089AD and you may find the Vivians in that
census. This census includes the citizens who were living
there before the Conqueror came in 1066AD, and his
companions in that battle who came from Normandy, France.
The Census can be ordered from G.P.C., Baltimore, or may
be in your library. It is called, The Domesday Book.
The Romans fought the Danes in Normandy for years before
they went into England and conquered them in 67AD by
putting siege to their food supply. Each county in England
had their own chieftan, some were friendly with Rome and
some were not.
