In Reply to: WILLIAM PURKISS BEFORE TADLOW, CAMBS, EN by Lynn Marshall of 96

This weekend I was in the New Forest in Hampshire. The Rufus Stone marks the spot where King William Rufus, son of William the Conqueror was killed by Sir Walter Tyrrel in a hunting accident. On the stone it says
'One Purkiss a charcoal burner carried his body to Winchester'There are still lots of Purkisses in Hampshire but my branch are clustered on the Essex/Cambridgeshire borders at Ashden, Bartlow and Shudy Camps. Incidently the Lords of the Manor at Ashden were the Tyrells. Perhaps the Purkisses came with them from Hampshire
