Norman, Storer, Anable, Brown, Watson families of Derbyshire and Staffordshire

I am a descendant of the Norman, Storer, Anable, Noone, Brown, Watson and Walker ancient families who lived in Staffordshire (Bolde, Blithfield, Mavesyn Ridware, Newton, Caverswall, Loxley, Uttoxeter, Stafford, Lichfield, Ruggeley) and Derbyshire (Duffield, Belper, Holbrook, Derby) in the 1400-1900 timeframe.

These families travelled with the ancient de Ferrers family to Duffield Castle, Tutbury Castle, Chartley Castle and Stafford Castle several times. Many of them served as knights and priests.

In Staffordshire, I have found Norman family members buried at Uttoxeter, Abbots Bromley and Mauvesyn Ridware as early as the 1400s.

In Derbyshire, at least 9 generations of these families are buried at Duffield Parish Church - St. Alkmunds (900 AD) near the old Duffield Castle ruins.

Would like to connect to others researching these ancient families of Staffordshire and Derbyshire England.
