|Five generations after Normandy's Conquest of
England in 1066 AD Richard Lytle was born. He was in line of descent from
William the Conqueror, King of England and the Duke of Normandy, whose
ancestry can be traced back to Ingiald who ruled in Central Sweden 1,300
Nine hundred years after Ingiald the Littles,
as well as other unruly Scottish clans in Eskdale and Liddesdale, were
to suffer executions, persecutions and banishments by the Royal command.
The Eskdale and Liddesdale chiefs, with the exception of Armstrong of Mangerton,
were lucky to hold on to their lives and lose only their lands. So it was
that the grand titles and like Royal favors destined for Scotland went
to their persecutors and not to them.
