by Jesse Russell and Ronald Cohn




Overview -
High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles Sir Warin de la Strode (also known as Warinus de la Strode, Warin of Brittany, or Guarin du l'Strode) was a knight who accompanied William the Conqueror in 1066 in the conquest of England. Warin was born around 1045 in Brittany. Warin is said to have been either the son, grandson, or nephew of Geoffrey I, Duke of Brittany based on having the same coat of arms, and is also believed to be the nephew or near-kinsman of Brian; Brian was the son of Eudes, the second son of Geoffrey. He is often given the name in Latin of "Warinus arbalistarius" for his status as a crossbowman, as such he was a participant in the Battle of Hastings. He was later knighted by King William. After the conquest of England, Warin became Lord of Strode, in Dorsetshire. Warin is mentioned in the 1086 Domesday Book as a "ministri" (servant of the King), and has his estate taxed at "two hides less half virgate" (210 acres). His holdings were at Chelworth, today in the parish of Cricklade, in northern Wiltshire. His land in the Domesday Book is stated as "Celewrde number 566," the number 566 signifying it was an estate though of relatively small size.
