      "Robert [fitz Harding]'s father appears in the Domesday survey as a Somerset landlord in possession of thegnland and may have had a house on Baldwin Street in Bristol." [Oxford Dictionary of National Biography, entry on his son Robert fitz Harding]

      "Harding son of Eadnoth [...] by 1086 was a substantial landowner in Somerset, probably by virtue of service to the king; he was a royal justice in the time of William II and was still living in the early 1120s. Harding's Somerset lands went to his son, Nicholas of Meriott; another son was Robert fitz Harding, the Bristol burgess and founder of the second house of Berkeley." [Oxford Dictionary of National Biography, entry on his father Eadnoth the Staller]
