Rigelsford Family Name

David,

I know you message is now 7 years old and I have seen the correspondence since. I may be able to assist with some more information on the family but I need to scan a lot of it in and forward it on. I have traced the name back to a Walter de Ridelesford who was mentioned as being a principal follower of Stongebow in the Anglo-Norman Invasion of Ireland in 1171. I'll post some more information when I receive your latest email address.

Regards,

Warren
