"... Turgis de Tracy, who signalized his valour at Hastings, commanded the Norman troops, in 1073, in Maine. A natural son of Henry the First bore the name of William de Tracy, probably because he was bom in the castle of that name, situated near to Vire. Henry de Tracy, contemporary with King Stephen, was distinguished for his unshaken attachment to that prince, from whom he received the barony of Barnstaple, in Devonshire. ..."
