  • Notes 
    • A Domesday tenant in chief in Cambridgeshire and Bedfordshire. Suggested by K. S. B. Keats-Roham as the probable father of Reginald, but this is not known for certain.

      "At this time the name David -- like many other Biblical names -- was evidently very uncommon both in Normandy and England. Only one other land-holder with this name is mentioned in the entire Domesday Book: David 'Latimer', or the Interpreter. Keats-Rohan suggests that this David, who was a tenant of William de Braose in Dorset, was probably identical with the David 'de Argentomo' of Cambridgeshire and Bedfordshire. William came from Briouze-Saint-Gervais, in the arrondissement of Argentan, and feudal relationships in Normandy were often replicated in England after the Norman Conquest."
