Came to England 1066 with William 1, and is believed to have fought in battle of Hastings as a knight. The family crest dates to the first crusade in 1099, as is indicated by inclusion of the "Saracen" head atop the crest on coat of arms. This image was symbolic of killing an enemy on this crusade. Is likely that it was his son Robert, who was then 22 years, on crusade. Robert Sr. was then 54 yeas old, a fairly advanced age in those days. We do know that this coat of arms was used by this family for at least 600 years as it was chiseled into the entry portal at Winwick Manor, then family seat again. by Sir Thomas Andrews, of Winwick Knight, around 1635; and still can be seen there today.
