Genealogical and Heraldic Histoy of the Commoners of Great ..., Volume 4

 By John Burke The name of this family has not been exempted from the corruption in spelling, which is to be traced in the records of many other family names. Their ancestor was the Norman Baron Taillefer, who accompanied William the Conqueror in his invasion of Great Britain, and of whom Wace, the Anglo-Norman poet, speaks, in describing the battle of Hastings, which took place on Saturday, the 14th October, 1066.
