(ROGER, ROGER, ROGER) LANCASHIRE AND CHESHIRE AND THE GREAT DOMESDAY BOOK (1086)
       Lancashire was the domain of Count Roger of Poitou, third son of the great Earl Roger de Montgomery II, the seignior of Mont gomerii in the arrondisement of Lisieux in Normandy. Roger of Poitou (sometimes known as Pictavencis, Pictavis, or in the West Riding, known as Roger le Poitevin). These extentive and rich holdings were grants made by Duke William of Normandy in reward for his father's Roger de Montgomery's assistance at the Battle of Hastings. He returned to Normandy with Queen Matilda, and the young Duke Robert as Duke William's representative. He became head of council that governed the Duchy of Normandy in Duke William's absence in England. The Norman Montgomery family ancestry was closely interwoven either by blood or marriage with the Duchy of Normandy.
