Sir David de Argentine, later of Croxton (Cambridgeshire) (a temp William I who r. 1066-1087)
TCP reports that the family took its name from Argenton in Poitou and not, as reported by some, from Argenton in Berry or Argentan in Normandy. The name is spelt variously. We follow TCP & BE1883 which use 'Argentine' but 'Argentein' is widely used.
