Profile

   

Although Beelsby, on the eastern side of the wolds in north-east Lincolnshire, was more or less in the same part of the shire as the extensive scattered estates of Agemund 7 (the Lincoln lawman Agemund son of Walraven), its holder can be distinguished from the latter by the fact that his ½ carucate passed to his son Godric, listed as a king’s thegn in 1086, whereas Agemund 7’s lands went to the Norman baron Jocelin fitzLambert.
