This page is still being researched. It has NOT yet been launched formally into the Database but is shown here TEMPORARILY (albeit for an uncertain length of time pending further research), partly to record connections that we fear we might otherwise lose sight of and partly in the hope that one or more visitors to the site will contribute information that will enable us to develop our information on the families covered in this page to a standard that would support release of a dedicated page in the Database.

Rowland 'of Neustria' (b c805)
1. Croise aka Godfrey
  A. Baldwin
  i. Baldwin
  Lodge suggests that this second Baldwin was "founder of the house of Blois in France" as well as being father of John, Earl of Comyn. That suggestion, that probably just repeated what was previously reported elsewhere, may have been what has led some web sites to show this Baldwin as one of the Baldwins of Flanders and others to connect him to Gerlon, Count of Blois. [Lodge confuses the issue even further with a reference to Baldwin, King of Jerusalem.] We view all of these connections, including the above descent, to be highly suspect and suggest that they be viewed as 'unreliable'. We understand that many early nobles wanted to be seen as a descendant of Charlemagne, identified by some as grandfather of the above Rowland, and that early researchers were sometimes paid to concoct a descent that showed such a descent. It is probable that there are many ancient manuscripts around that refer to such connections. The fact that they are ancient does not mean that they were true!
