I have been working up a profile on my ancestor, Lewis Stockett. I have found several references that he is a descendant of Sir Walter de Stockett. He is said to have been a Crusader or Knights Templar.
Literally, I have found no proof of any Stocketts in England prior to Lewis Stockett. Are there lists of Crusaders or Knights Templar in England? Could it be possible to verify Sir Walter de Stockett's ownership of land in St Stephen's Parish, Hackington, Kent, Near Canterbury....during the time of King Edward I? How would I go about trying to trace these records?
I sure would appreciate any help by genealogists who have knowledge of the time period. Thank you in advance for taking a look.
