liineage. — According to an old pedigree "the family of
the Kynnersleys is very ancient, Leing seated long before the
Conquest in com. Hereford in a castle soe called at present.
In Doomesday Boolieit is recorded, that when the Conqueror
was possessed of his newe kingdome of England, hee sent his
Coramiss''' throughout y'' remote parts thereof, to know howe
every man held his lands. In which time there was an ould
gentleman that lived and was owner of Kynnardsley Castle, in
com. Hereford ; by name John de Kynnardsley, and by title a
knight (if any knights were before the Conquest). This ould
gentleman was blind, he had then liveing with him twelve
sonnes, whom with liimself he armed, and stood in his castle
gate, his halberd in his hand, attending the coming of sheriffs
and other comiss" from y'' king, who being arrived, demanded
of him by what tenure he held his castle and lands; y^ old kut
replied by his armes, showing to them his halberd."

Hdgo de Ktnnardslete is mentioned in several charters in
the time of Henry III., and was seised of the manor of Newland
and other estates in cos. Gloucester and Hereford. This Hugh
is stated to have been a solder of the Cross, to have accom-
panied Trince Edward to the Holy Land, and to have received
the honour of knighthood, upon which occasion he added the
.Jerusalem crosses to his arms, w hich were before " Az., a lion
rampant arg."
