mysteries, contradictions, & controversies about Luttrell history and genealogy
So, who appointed me to be "webmaster" of "TheLuttrells.com"?
Well, one day in 1999, after beginning my indoctrination into the world of internet domains, I was checking out domain names that were interesting to me. I checked out "Luttrell.com". . .TAKEN
(by someone with NO Luttrell connection!
How can the internet gurus allow that? ).
BUT, "TheLuttrells.com" was available
(so was .net and .org). . . .
So I spent $70.00 and reserved www.TheLuttrells.com.
Since childhood (when my Dad told me about a Luttrell castle somewhere near where King Arthur lived) I have been interested in learning more about my ancestors and the cousins who bore my name. Dad did tell me to expect to find some less than shining "knights" in the family history closet.
Years later came a son (who was much more focused on his
pursuit of learning than I had been) and the internet.
Eric's voracious appetite for Luttrell and Middle Ages history (primarily Norman) and the accessibility of many titillating tidbits of
Luttrell legend through the "information superhighway" compelled my romantic side to hereafter wander in search of
the holy grail of ancestral knowledge.
I know there are greater knights upon the research field. I can, at least, shine their armor and highlight their victories.
In honor of all the other crusading Luttrell history knights,
this site is birthed.
