"Rogerus Lungus Ensis" held in Norfolk 1086 (Domesday). But there is no mention of him (at least by this name) in the county history; and I have in consequence no means of identifying him. This is one of the numerous cases in which a continuation of the Recherches sur le Domesday would have been invaluable in helping to decide the question.
Moreover, it is possible that this entry may be an interpolation, referring to the famous bastard son of Henry II. and Fair Rosamond. (See Devereux.)
