  • Notes 
    • "When the Earl of Leicester lost control of Breteuil in 1141, Arnold III de Bois followed his lord across the Channel and settled permanently in England. There he was the first of several De Bois men to hold the important post of Keeper of the Royal Forest as well as the first recorded De Bois family member to serve as a Leicestershire steward, a title that became hereditary."
