  1. 1.  Walter Deincourt was born in in of Blankney, Sleaford, Lincolnshire, England; died between 1088 and 1103.


    Also called Walter D'Aincourt, d'Eyncourt, etc. Domesday lord of Blankney, Lincolnshire.

    "Walter de Aincourt was a substantial Domesday tenant-in-chief, notably in Lincolnshire and Northamptonshire. In the early thirteenth century the representative of the family was his descendant Oliver. In the feodary of 1212-1220 in the Registers of Philip Augustus under the rubric 'Ballivia domini Gaufridi de Capella' ie. the bailiwick of Caux in which Ancourt lay, is the entry 'Terra Oliveri de Eincuria unum feodum apud Eincuriam'. Oliver had remained in England and adhered to John; Ancourt would therefore be in the French King's hand. The epitaph of William son of Walter de Aincourt, the Domesday tenant-in-chief, preserved in Lincoln Cathedral, describes Walter as kinsman of Remigius bishop of Lincoln; it is to be noted that Remigius had been a monk and almoner of Fecamp and that the abbot of Fecamp was patron of the church of Ancourt. In 1870 the remains of the castle were to be seen near the church." [The Origins of Some Anglo-Norman Families by Lewis C. Lloyd. Charles Travis Clay and David C. Douglas, eds. Leeds: Harleian Society, 1951.]

    "The arms of this family were, Azure, billetty and a fesse dancette Or. Aincourt is a village in the Vexin normand." [Complete Peerage IV:118, note (b).]
