Baron Taillefer Descendants Report

Descendants of Baron Taillefer

Generation No. 1

1. Baron Taillefer was born 1045, and died 1066 in Battle of Hastings.

Many English Taylors are not descendants of folks who practiced the art of sewing clothes, but rather were descendants of a Roman who came to England. According to a French genealogist, the original ancestor of the Taylors whose name originated in this fashion was one Wulgrin, grandfather of William Taillefer, who was created Count of Perigord and Angouleme in Normandy by his kinsman, Charles the Bold of France. According to Burke’s History of the Landed Gentry of England, the Norman baron Taillefer accompanied William the Conqueror in his invasion of England in 1066, and fell in the Battle of Hastings. The name has been variously spelled, from Taillefer, Taliaferro, Taylefer, Taylard, and finally modernized into Taylor.

“Baron Taillefer, Norman Minstral of Wm the Conqueror, led the charge at Hastings, going into the Battle singing the Old War Songs; For his great services, he was given large landed possessions in the county of Kent, which descended to his posterity during the Reigns of Henry III, Richard II, Henry IV and Henry V. His descendants became the Earls of Pennington, who bear the same arms as those brought to VA by James Taylor, the immigrant, and now in possession of the family.”
