2569 William (Guillermo) Hernandez is listed in the 1930 Census, Los Angeles, California as Lodger/Partner to Frederick Grenot. However, the relationship is further clarified in the 1940 Census, Los Angeles, where it shows his wife, Juana, as the sister-in-law of Frederick (and therefore the sister of Victoria Duarte). So William is Frederick's brother-in-law. Hernandez, Guillermo Apodaca (I6578)

2573 William de Bohun, Earl of Northampton, was born about 1312. He was a personage of great eminence in the turbulent times in which he lived, and one of the gallant heroes of Cressy. In the parliament held at London, in the 11th year of Edward III., upon the advancement of the Black Prince to the dukedom of Cornwall, he was elected Earl of Northampton, on March 17, 1337, and from that period he appears the constant companion in arms of the martial Edward, and his illustrious son. At Cressy he was in the second battalia of the English army, and he was frequently engaged in the subsequent wars of France and Scotland. He was entrusted at different periods with the most important offices, such as ambassador to treat of peace with hostile powers, commissioner to levy troops, etc., and he was finally elected as a Knight of the Garter. He married Elizabeth Badlesmere, daughter of Bartholomew de Badlesmere and his wife Margaret Clare. Elizabeth was one of the co-heirs of her brother Giles de Badlesmere, and widow of Edmund de Mortimer. de Bohun, William 1st Earl of Northampton (I7564)
2574 William de Braose likewise inherited the large estates of his grandmother, and besides possessed of the honor of Braose, in Normandy. This feudal lord was a personage of great power and influence during the reigns of King Henry II. and King Richard I., from the former of whom he received a grant of the "whole kingdom of Limerick, in Ireland," for the service of sixty knight's fees, to be held of the king and his younger son, John. For several years after this period he appears to have enjoy the favor of King John, and his power and possessions were augmented by divers grants from the crown. But in the 10th year of the king's reign, when the kingdom labored under an interdiction, and John deemed it expedient to demand hostages from his barons to ensure their allegiance, should the Pope proceed to the length of absolving them from obedience to the crown, his officers who came upon the mission to the Baron de Braose, were sent by Maud, his wife, and peremptorily informed that she would not intrust any of her children to the king, who had so basely murdered his own nephew, Prince Arthur. De Braose rebuked her, however, for speaking thus, and said that if he had in any way offended the king, he was ready to make satisfaction, according to the judgment of the court, and the barons his peers, upon an appointed day, and at any fixed place, without however giving hostages. This answer being communicated to the king, an order was immediately transmitted to seize upon the baron's person, but Braose having notice thereof fled with his family to Ireland. This quarrel between the king and Braose is, however, differently related by other authorities. The monk of Lanthony states, that King John disinherited and banished him for his cruelty to the Welsh, in his war with Gwenwynwyn, and that his wife, Maud, and William, his son and heir, died prisoners in Corfe Castle. While another writer relates, "that this William de Braose, son of Philip de Braose, Lord of Buelt, held the lands of Brechnock and Went, for the whole time of King Henry II., King Richard I., and King John, without any disturbance, until he took to wife the Lady Maud de Walerie, who in revenge of Henry de Hereford, caused divers Welshmen to be murthered in the castle of Bergavenny, as they sat at meat; and that for this, and for some other pickt quarrel, King John banished him and all his out of England. Likewise, that in his exile, Maud, his wife, with William, called Gam, his son, were taken and put in prison; where she died, the 10th year after her husband fought with Wenwynwyn, and slew three thousand Welsh." From these various relations, says Dugdale, it is no easy matter to discover what his demerits were; but what usage he had at last, take here from the credit of these two historians, who lived near that time. "This year, viz. anno 1240," qouth Matthew of Westminster, "the noble lady Maud, wife of William de Braose, with William, their son and heir, were miserably famished at Windsore, by the command of King John. ; and William, her husband, escaping from Scorham, put himself into the habit of a beggar, and privately going beyond the sea, died soon after at Paris, where he had burial in the abbey of St, Victor." And Matthew Paris, putting his death in the year 1212 (which differs a little in time), says, "That he fled from Ireland to France, and dying at Ebula, his body was carried to Paris, and there honorably buried in the abbey of St. Victor....Being by inheritance from his mother, Lord of Bergavenny, he made grants to the monks of that priory, conditionally, that the abbot and convent of St. Vincenti, in Maine should daily pray for the soul of Maud his wife." DE BRAOSE, William II (I7572)
2575 William de Braose, who perished by starvation with his mother, at Windsor. He married Maud Clare, daughter of the Earl of Clare, with whom he had the town of Buckingham, in frank marriage. DE BRAOSE, William (I7590)
2576 William de Warren I, Earl of Warenne, came from Normandy, a near kinsman of William the Conqueror. He received large grants of land in recognition of the distinguished part he took at the battle of Hastings. He had large grants of land in several counties among which were the barony of Lewes, in Sussex, and the manors of Carletune and Benington, in Lincolnshire. So extensive indeed were those grants that his possessions resembled more the dominions of a sovereign prince than the estates of a subject. He enjoyed, too, in the highest degree, the confidence of the king, and was appointed joint Justice-General, with Richard de Benefactis, for administering justice throughout the whole realm. While in that office, some great disturbers of the public peace having refused to appear before him and his colleague, in obedience to citation, the Earl took up arms, and defeated the rebels in a battle at Fagadune, when he is said, for the purpose of striking terror, to have cut off the right foot of each of his prisoners. Of these rebels, Ralph Wahir or Gauder, Earl of Norfolk, and Roger, Earl of Hereford, were the ringleaders. He was likewise highly esteemed by King William Rufus, and was created by that monarch the first Earl of Surrey. He married Gundred, daughter of William the Conqueror and Lady Matilda.

The following account is from Crispin and Macary in "Falaise Rolls":
"The family derived its name from the fiefdom of Vareene in St.-Aubin-le-Cauf, arrondissement of Dieppe. William, Count of Warren (Varenne) in Normandy, was descended from Gautier de St.-Martin and a niece of the duchess Gonnor, who had issue: 1. Raoul de Warren, a benefactor to the abbey of Trinite du Mont in the middle of the 11th century, was the father of William de Warren I and of Roger de Mortemer, father of Raoul de Mortemer, who was present at Hastings; 2. sire de St.-Martin, possibly named Gautier, ancestor of the family of this name in Normandy and England. Orderic Vital styles William the cousin or kinsman of Roger de Mortemer; however, this is an error. Norman People published this pedigree: Gautier de St.-Martin, and a niece of the aforesaid duchess had a son, William de St.-Martin, whose issue were: 1. Roger de Mortemer, father of Raoul de Mortemer, a warrior at Hastings; 2. Raoul de Warren; and 3. sire de St.-Martin, but this makes too many generations for the known facts.

William de Warren is first mentioned in history in connection with the battle of Mortemer in 1054 by Oderic Vital, and again as having attended the council at Lillebonne, where it was determined to invade England. He later was one of the powerful seigniors who attended Duke William to the Conquest, and Wace records "De Garenes i vint Willeme," but nothing of importance is chronicled concerning him at Hastings. In 1067 he was one of the nobles entrusted with the government of England during the king's absence in Normandy under the jurisdiction of Bishop Odo and William Fitz Osberne. In 1074 he was associated with Richard de Bienfaite in the suppression of the rebellion of the Earls of Hereford and Norfolk and as joint-Justice-General with him for administering justice throughout the whole realm. His reward was princely, since he held the great baronies of Castle Acre in Norfolk, Lewes in Sussex, where he usually resided, and Coningsburg in Yorkshire, with twenty-eight towns and hamlets in its soke. In all he possessed 300 manors and was created the first Earl of Surrey by King William Rufus. The reason for this enormous reward was probably because he married Gundreda, who is believed to have been the daughter of Queen Matilda (and William the Conqueror?); she died in 1085. This theory is supported by a charter of William de Warren to Lewes priory, in which he states that his donations, among others, were for Queen Matilda, the mother of his wife. It is conjectured that Grundreda and Gherbold the Fleming, created Earl of Chester, her brother, were the children of Queen Matilda by a former marriage, probably clandestine, and therefore not reported by the historians of the day. William de Warren I. was succeeded by his son, William de Warren II., Earl of Warren and Surrey, who married Elizabeth, daughter of the great Earl of Vermandois, the widowed countess of Meulent, by whom he had, among other children, William de Warren III., the last earl of his line, who succeeded him and died in the Holy Land, leaving an only child, Isabel Warren, who inherited his vast domain and through whom the family descended. In addition to Wace, William de Warren is reported in Hastings by William de Poitiers, Oderic Vital and Benoit de St.-More." 
1ST EARL OF WARREN, William (I6920)
2577 William de Warren III, 3rd Earl of Warrenne and 3rd Earl of Surrey, zealously espoused the cause of King Stephen, and had a chief command in the army of that monarch, in the battle fought at Lincoln, between him and the adherents of the Empress Maud. He married Adela (Alice) Talvace, daughter of William Talvace, Baron de Talvace, son of Robert de Belesme, 3rd Earl of Shrewsbury and Arundel, and by her (who married (2) Patrick de Eureux, Earl of Salisbury).

In 1147, the Earl of Warrenne and Surrey assumed the cross, and accompanied King Louis of France to the Holy Land against the Saracens. From this unfortunate enterprise he never returned, but whether he fell in battle or died in captivity has never been ascertained.

2579 William I., the Lion, King of Scotland, 11th Earl of Huntingdon, taking up arms in favor of Prince Henry, so exasperated King Henry II., that he immediately sent an army against him, and promised that the castle and earldom should be restored to the family of St. Liz, the rightful heirs; whereupon Simon St. Liz, Earl of Northampton, son and heir of Simon, last Earl of Huntingdon, of that family, levied troops, and appeared before the castle, when William of Scotland, finding it untenable, made a surrender to St. Liz of that fortress, which the King of England ordered to be demolished, but nevertheless, Simon de St. Liz was restored to the Earldom of Huntingdon, about 1174, which he enjoyed for the remainder of his life. He d.s.p., in 1184, whereupon King Henry II. restored the Earldom to King William, of Scotland, and that monarch transferred it to his younger brother, David. From the treaty of Falaise, December 8, 1174, to King Richard's quit-claim of December 5, 1189, William acknowledged the King of England as overlord of Scotland. William married Ermengarde Beaumont, and was the father of Alexander II, and he was also the father of many children; four with his wife Ermengarde KING OF SCOTLAND, William "the Lion" (I6925)

2583 William Marshal, 2nd Earl of Pembroke, who , in the time of his father, was as strenuous a supporter of the baronial cause as that nobleman was of the royal interests, and was constituted a Surety, one of the twenty-five barons appointed to enforce the observance of the Magna Charta, being then styled "Comes Mareschal, Jun." After the decease of King John, however, he made his peace, and becoming loyally attached to the new monarch, obtained grants of the forfeited lands of his former companions, Saier de Quincy, Earl of Winchester, and David, Earl of Huntingdon. He was subsequently engaged against the Welsh, and defeated their Prince, Llewellyn, with great slaughter; and in the 14th year of Henry III., he was captain-general of the king's forces in Brittany. He married Alice Betun, daughter of Baldwin de Betun, Earl of Albemarle; and (2) Eleanor (Alianore) Plantaganet, daughter of King John, and sister of Henry III., but had issue by neither. He died in 1231, and was succeeded by his next brother, Richard. Marshal, William 2nd Earl of Pembroke (I6906)
2584 William Marshal, born in 1146 and died in 1219, was of the great baronial family of Marischal, marshal to the king. See Burke, pg. 358-359. This William is first mentioned as receiving from Prince Henry, the rebellious son of Henry II., upon the prince's deathbed, his cross, as his most confidential friend, to convey to Jerusalem. He married Isabel (Eva) Clare, only child and heiress of Richard de Clare (surnamed Strongbow), Earl of Pembroke, conqueror of Ireland and Justice of Ireland. She had been under the guardianship of Henry II., who gave her in marriage in 1189. Through his wife, William acquired the Earldom of Pembroke, in which rank he bore the royal scepter of gold surmounted by the cross, at the coronation of King Richard I.; and he was soon afterwards, on the king's purposing a journey to the Holy Land, appointed one of the assistants to Hugh, Bishop of Durham, and William, Earl of Albemarle, Chief Justice of England, in the government of the realm. He was brother and male heir, of John Marshal, otherwise Mareschall. This family enjoyed the office of marshal of the King's House, and from that post assumed its surname; which gave occasion, says Banks, to their being often styled Earls Marshal, as well as Earls of Striguil and Pembroke; but such denomination was matter of curiality more then of reality. The manor of Hempsted-Marshal, in Berkshire, belonging to the Marshals, was held of old by grand serjeanty of the Kings of England, to be the knights marshal, as the offices of steward, constable, etc. were in those times granted. Upon the decease of his brother, John Mareschall, marshal of the king's house, in 1199, he became Lord Marshal; and on the day of the coronation of King John, he was invested with sword of the Earldom of Pembroke, being then confirmed in the possession of the said inheritance. In the first year of the monarch's reign, he was appointed sheriff of Gloucestershire, and likewise of Sussex, wherein he was continued for several years. In the 5th year he had a grant of Goderich Castle, in the co. Hereford, to hold by the service of two knight's fees; and in four years afterwards, he obtained, by grant from the crown, the whole province of Leinster, in Ireland, to hold by the service of one hundred knight's fees. Upon the breaking out of the baronial insurrection, the Earl of Pembroke was deputed, with the Archbishop of Canterbury, by the king, to ascertain the grievances and demands of those turbulent lords; and at the demise of King John, he was so powerful as to prevail upon the barons to appoint a day for the coronation of Henry III., to whom he was constituted guardian, by the rest of the nobility, who had remained firm in their allegiance. He subsequently took up arms in the royal cause, and after achieving a victory over the barons at Lincoln, proceeded directly to London, and investing that great city, both by land and water, reduced it to extremity, for want of provisions. Peace, however, being soon after concluded, it was relieved. His lordship, at this period, executed the office of sheriff for the cos. of Essex and Hertford. This eminent nobleman was no less distinguished by his wisdom in the council and valor in the field, than by his piety and his attachment to the church, of which his numerous munificent endowments bear ample testimony. He had by his wife, Isabel, five sons, who succeeded each other in his lands and honors, and five daughters. Marshal, Sir William 1st Earl of Pembroke (I6122)
2585 William Pynchon (October 11, 1590 - October 29, 1662) was a colonial assistant treasurer and original patentee of the Massachusetts Bay Colony. He led the 1635 settlement of Springfield, Hampden County, Massachusetts, which was named after his home village, now a suburb of Chelmsford in Essex, England.

Pynchon was a theologian; he expressed his views in The Meritorious Price of Our Redemption (1650). Officials of the colony ordered this book burned and demanded that he retract its argument, which was contrary to the colony's official Calvinism. Instead of retracting, he returned to England in 1652, where he remained for the rest of his life. Pynchon built a trading post at Enfield Falls, which would become Springfield, Massachusetts from which he exported between 4,000 to 6,000 beaver pelts a year between 1636 and 1652. The profits enabled him to retire to England as a wealthy man.
