    Robert Gernon (or Robert Greno as he is referred to in the Domesday Book) came over from France with William the Conqueror, and was rewarded with this Lordship and several others in the County.
    The male line of the Gernon family continued for only five generations.  The time of Robert Gernon's death is unknown.  William, his son and heir, dropped the name of Gernon and took the name of Montfitchet, which was used thereafter by his descendants.  William founded the Abbey of Stratford Langthorne in West Ham.  Of William's son, Gilbert de Montfitchet, little is known.
