Lives of the Lindsays: or, A memoir of the houses of Crawford and Balcarres by Alexander Crawford Lindsay Crawford (Earl of)
"Randolph de Limesay, said to have been sister's son to the Conquerer, was the first of the Anglo-Norman stock who settled in England. He obtained above forty lordships in different counties of England, including Wolverley in Warwickshire, the chief seat of his posterity, and from which they took their style as barons.....Ranolph died towards the close of William the Conquerer's reign, after founding the Priory of Hertford, in dependency on the Abbey of St. Albans, -- to which latter house, like his presumed kinsman Angodus de Lindsay, he bore profound veneration, and within whose hallowed precincts he and his wife Hadewisa were admitted as brother and sister before their decease. Alan de Limesay, his son and Gerard his grandson, succeeded him, and were similarly bountiful, but the son of Gerard dying without issue, the property went to his two daughters, the coheiresses above mentioned, to wit, Basilia, the eldest, wife of Sir Hugo de Odingsels, and Aleanora, wife of Sir David de Lindsay of Crawford, the descendants and representative of Walter, the original settler in Scotland under David I."
