JOSSELYN - aka Joselyn, Jocelyn

     SIR GILBERT JOCELYN was a wealthy Norman Knight who came to England with William the Conqueror in 1066. He married the daughter of a Saxon Thane and settled Lincolnshire, where he held of Gilbert of Gaunt the lordships of Semperingham & Tyrrington. "According to Lodge, Peerage of Ireland, vol. 3, p. 259 (revised edition of 1789), Sir Gilbert Jocelyne was son of Egidius Josselin, a nobleman of Brittany, who crossed into England in the reign of Edward the Confessor, about 1045. the son, Sir Gilbert, born apparently in England, went into Normandy and returned to England with the Conqueror. Evidence to prove these statements seems to be lacking".
