First found in Normandy (French: Normandie), the former Duchy of Normandy, where this distinguished family held a family seat in the castle and barony of Lahaie-du-Puits in the arrondissement of Coutance from about the year 890. But the annals of the family only start about 1066 when the Sire Eudo de Lahaie accompanied Duke William of Normandy in his conquest of England. He became a great Baron and possessed vast estates in Sussex, Essex and Suffolk, and died in 1098, and the Norman branch of the family continued to flourish.
