You are not alone in describing Duke William "the Conqueror" and King Edward "the Confessor" as distant cousins, but in fact William's father Duke Robert I was the brother of Edward''s mother Emma of Normandy, so they were first cousins, once removed.  Edward's maternal first cousin was Count Eudon, son of Duke Geoffrey I of Brittany and Hawise "la bonne Normande" (the good Norman woman).  Eudon could have claimed the English throne himself, but instead provided 5000 troops for William's invasion in 1066.  Two of Eudon's sons, Alan Rufus and Brian, were among William's finest generals.

Alan was connected somehow with Eadgifu "Swannesha", first wife of Harold Godwinson - perhaps she was related to King Edward? - and obtained most of her manors, as well as a share of Earl Gyrth's properties equal in number to King William's.

Alan cultivated good relations with the native English, retaining them as local lords in Richmondshire to the exclusion of Normans.  He even brought both Kings William I and William II up to York to humbly reconcile with the citizens - a development that was sure ro provoke a reaction.  In 1088, he allied with the English Fyrd to defeat a nationwide uprising by a majority of the Norman magnates.

Archbishop Anselm around 1093-94 twice accused Harold's daughter Gunhild, whom he regarded as a Wilton Abbey nun, of having an affair with Alan Rufus and then, on his death, with his brother Alan Niger, but he later removed these letters from his archive - had he mistaken the nature of the relationship?

There is a nice painting by Seth Eastman (done in 1857) at the top of your site for Great Basin Indians.  That picture is, I believe, Great LAKES Basin, not the one out West.

I'll answer that one. Fact is, that "Owl" being unclean comes from the lore of the surrounding areas, such as Iran, or rather what will be Iran. Believed to be carrion eaters, they were associated by every culture of the Middle East with  the dead, desolation and with those things best not spoken of which were  in burrows and caves.

So it is from common culture that the owl is an ominous, dirge(mourning) symbol. 

Hebrew mythology also associates the owl (the small burrow owls) with Lilith, and in several places the Hebrew world Lilith is altered and changed to the English word "owl"  So.. please do not lecture on adding or subtracting from the word, since it is already well stepped on and twisted before we ever get to see it.

I'm sorry to leave this here but I have tried reaching you at webmaster@poetry-online.org and I dont think you're receiving them. 

Hello,
 
I’m trying to reach the correct contact to discuss adding our Interyield Direct and Intext monetization product to your website http://babynames.org.uk/  
We are seeing great revenue for other content partners and I believe you will benefit from this ad unit as well.  I see you have similar products on your site already, but I believe that we can beat the current eCPM’s you are getting from your current providers.  
 
We are seeing great revenue for other content partners, some are yielding over $5.00 eCPM's and we have great coverage. 
 
I would love to jump on a call to discuss this opportunity with the proper person.  I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Thanks,

Love your page on Motte-and-Bailey. Would you be able to clarify the situation for the Knights? Is it a Lord OR a Knight that occupied the castle? Or both? Thanks!

Can I ask you something? What kind of degree do you have, because we need to make sure we have credible sources for our L.A. project. Can you send us more information about the globe and elizabethan theaters?
