I pressed the wrong key. Let me continue:
We read from the St Clairs of England: "........the sires of Anvilliers,
Onebec and St Cler
charged the Angles who had fallen back on rising ground and overthrew many"
I agree with Joe G. that we need to determine the names of all the St
Clairs who took part
and, given time, I will do this. We know that they took possession of
lands in Essex, Kent, Cornwall, Somerset, Devon & Norfolk. After the
Conquest the notices of the St Clairs of England are numerous, One of the
St Clare's built the Castle of that name in Wales.
The engrailed cross of the Sinclairs turns up in almost every quarter of
the land - from
Kirkwall to Cornwall.
Alas, time is not a commodity of which I have a great deal to spare (being
still actively involved in a growing business) but I appreciate I'm
probably better placed than most to
find the information which we are all so anxious to trace.
