  • Note:

    Geoffrey Chaucer?s family can be traced back four generations to Robert le Taverner of Ipswich, who died about 1280. The family's original home was in Ipswich, but it seems that they always had business interests in London as well. Robert the Taverner was known in London as Robert Malyn, and Malyn may been the original family name. Robert's grandson (also named Robert) was Geoffrey's grandfather, and appears in various records under several different names: Robert Malyn, Robert le Dennington (a village near Ipswich), Robert the Saddler, and Robert Chaucer.
