Thorkil De Cliveland was decended from Vikings who gained land from Charles III of France. The land was named Normandy. French for territory of the Northmen. In 1066, William, Duke of Normandy, offered land and nobility to any Norsmen who joined him in conquest of England. 6000 men departed Normandy. They were victorious and William became King of England. This began the rule of the Norman Kings. Thorkil was granted lands and titles. These lands were recorded in the Doomesday Book in 1086.
