Post 79. Robin Hood.

The Truth About Robin Hood's True Identity.
Some among the readers of my Posts may remember my mentioning a Sir William Ferrers, the 5th Earl of Derby, Lord Tutbury, a crusading Knight Templar who died in the siege operations around Acre in the Holy Land in ca 1095-1097 AD.which represents a unique event in the History of Clans. of the Indo-European languages.I wrote then about my identification of his knight-effigy, wrongly described for centuries by the English located with two Ferrers’ effigies in the Church od our Lady of Merevale in Staffordshire where loyalties are still strong for King Henry VIII, "dripping-cock Harris" the destroyer of Merevale Monastery/Abbey, looking for buried Templars’ treasure. God punished him as his dinasty only lasted for two generations, Allelujah!.
I have recently come across some information sent to me by my celtic/british ancestral cousins in Utah the USA and wish to popularise it to counter the lies spread by the Anglo/Saxons who rose to power in England following the end of the Plantagenets’ Royal Lines, and propagated by imbecillic Yiddish Hollywood Film producers who have not a got any clue about History and have done the western image untold harm.
Anglo/Saxon propaganda con-men in England have made their own the struggles for Magna Charta, for the Dispensations and Provisions of Oxford and Westminster, which are solely and entirely to be attributed to the descendents of the Celtic/Breton/Norman nobles who fought at Hasting at William Conquerors’ side against the Saxon/Danish perjurer and oath-breaker Harold Hardrada.
I must however be more precise at this point in relation to Lord Simon de Montfort, the Earl of Leicester who was of German/Norman descent and the Beauchmap ( BelloCampo) who were of Italian/Norman descent.
The Ferrers, who held the Earldom of Derby through eight consecutive Earls of their line were of celtic/breton/Norman blood and acquired their surname, originally "Ferreri ", in Roman times when fighting the Romans in about 100 BC when located in the area around Lake Geneva in Switzerland ( Marius, Sulla ad Caesar).
With the rise of roman power in Europe the "Ferreri’ known in legal documents until as far as 1700 AD as "De Ferrarii", spread over Western Europe, most of them settling in Brittany and Normandy which had ben given independent provincial status and priviledges in about 450 AD, by Emperor Honorius one of the last Roman Emperors at the times of the end of the much maligned Roman Empire of the West ( What scenario may I ask, is the present western Civilisation showing with its Bestiality an porno-abuses, mortgage-bubble-bursts, etc., hey, hey?).
Families like those of the Ferrerii had acquired a considerable know-how in the manufacture, production of weapons and equipment for the Roman Cavalry, including recruiting, supply, training of both mounted men and horses suitable to cavalry-engagements during the course of the long evolution of the Roman Cavalry Arm as it faced the changing and challenging threats of ever-rising new opponents the most formidable of whom as far as cavalry-action was concerned for the Roman Empire of the West had been Attila’s Huns, defeated in a two-days battle at Chalon-Sur-Marne, in the Champagne-plains, essentially by Armorican/Roman heavy cavalry ( Ferreri having been certainly present).
Learning continued until the end of european imperial centralisations, ended with Charlemagne and the rise of the European Monarchies which began to divide and set Europeans one against the other in the name of Christianity.
That was the reason for the scattering and changes of the original surname Ferrerii over western Europe into a large number of surnames for people who are essentially derived from a common celtic anscestor. from the area east of the Caspian sea in Turkmenistan ( Bactria).
DNA testing is now conferming these facts so far sensed, researched and described in a History of the Ferrerii Clan to be published sometime in the near future, both deductively and inductevily by myself, the initial DNA testing having been carried out by Ferrerii. in Utah, USA, by the family group of FARR/FAYREY and others.
Upon their contacting my Porto Rican anscestral cousin Eddie Ferrer and I, DNA- testing has been extended to cover other family groups of our great Clan.
Let me now quote from "The Meynell Hounds" in relation to Robin Hood-:
" Loxley [ Leicestershire, just south of Leicester] is also interesting from the connection with Robin Hood, who is said not only to have been born there, but to have been married there as well. He is thought by some to have been a Robert de Ferrers. To quote the exact words of Mr. Redfern, from whose history and amtiquities of Uttoxeter this account is taken,
"It is supposed that he may have had the name of Hood from being hooded, and that of Huntingdon from being engaged in hunting, and although of norman [ celtic/breton/morman] blood, it is thought not impossible that he might take up ther popular cause.
There is in existence in the family of Kynersley [ which married into a branch of a Ferrers’s family locared at Loxley], an ancient horn having the proud name of Robin Hood’s horn, and which was formerly in the possession of the Ferrers of Chartley, and then in the branch of the same family [Ferrers] at Loxley, and so passed to the family of Kynersley by the marriage of the heiress of Ferrers with John of Kynardsley.
It has the initials R.H., and three horse-shoes, two and one, in a shield, that being the way in which the arms were born by the first Thomas de Ferrers of Loxley
[ This is not correct as these Arms, (silver, three horse shoes black, nailed silver, two, one) are the most ancient held by Ferrers in England, represented at Tamworth Castle in relation to the granting of the Castle of Tutburie to Henry Ferrers of Hasting’s fame; his son William, carrying, a silver field, six horse shoes black, nailed silver. Perhaps Thomas drew these as a commemoration of the original anscetor ],
and probably by a Robert, who preceded him apparently towards the close of the twelth century [ these Ferrers are rather obscure figures, cadets of cadets of cadets.............]; and as they were on the coloured glass in their house[ hence commemorative of the very ancient ones] of which I have spoken, the traditionary connection with Robin Hood is interesting. The horn is mounted with silver ferrules, and has a silver chain attached to it for suspension.............
With respect with the marriage of Robin Hood at Loxley, an old chronicle states that after his return there from a visit to his uncle Gamewell, in Warwickshire, after certain inquiries concerning his men,
" Cloranda came by,
The queen of the shepherds was she,"
with whom he fell in love, when
"Sir Roger, the parson of Dubridge, was called in haste;
He brought his Mass book and bid them take hands,
And joined them in marriage full fast." "
Robin Hood traditionally rebelled against the same absolutism of King John against which the Celtic/Norman Barons, led by the Syre de Quincy and Sir Geoffrey De Mandeville were struggling, when John had been ruling England in the absence of his brother King Richard the Lionheart.
It is quite possible that Richard was interfered with by the saxon rulers in Austria during his return-trip from the Holy Land on instigation by John.
The House of Ferrers had suffered from John in so far as he had seduced Agatha the daughter of Sir William the crusader and knight Templar whose effigy is at Merevale.
Agatha had in fact been abused as a concubine by John and a daughter of the relationship, Alice had been given in marriage to Llewellin, the King of Wales who had hung Agatha’s great uncle Gualchelinus during the wars against Wales that had occurred during the 16 years long rebellion against King Henry II’s by his wife Eleanor and all his sons including Richard. Robert de Ferrers, the 4th Earl of Derby had then joined the side of Eleanor against Henry II.
Henry II, an Anjevin ( Visigothic ascent)who was a very immoral, bold and ambitious man, had had St.Thomas a’Becket murdered and was planning of divorcing Eleanor of Aquitaine who had given him England and made him King, in order to marry the second and younger daughter of the King of France who had already been bethrothed to his son Richard. He won and punished the Ferrers ( by reducing the walls of Tutburie, destroying the Castle of Duffield, and placing the horse-shoed Arms of the ancient Ferrers in abeyance, declaring these illegal and rebellious not to be used or displayed), although forgiving Eleanor and his sons.
William was eventually rehabilitated, but had died at Acre in ca. 1195-1197 AD. Sir Geoffrey de Mandeville's effigy in the Temple-Court-Church in London is a copy of the one of Sir William Ferrers, the Earl of Derby, Lord Tutbury, at the Church of our Lady of Merevale.
Please note the comment made by mr. Redfern of Uttoxeter’s fame,
" ............................and although of norman [ celtic/breton/morman] blood, it is thought not impossible that he might take up ther popular cause."
This comment shows how the anglosaxon propaganda I mentioned above had persisted in Mr. Redfern’s expressed doubt as to his defending those suffering from the injustices of oppressive rulers, as the Anglo/Saxon propaganda vilified Norman rule, when all that can be said of the Normans is that they were disciplinarians, harsh but just, when confronting the evidence of a quite probable and possible tradition about Robin Hood having been a celtic/breton/norman Ferrers.

From the various historical facts I narrated above it is evident that if Robin Hood had indeed been Robert de Ferrers, some untitled cadet of a cadet of the principal branch of the Earls of Derby, Lords Tutbury, his rebellious struggle against the corrupt government of Henry II and John would have had ample motivation and justification from at least a political-ethical point of view as the Ferrers had, apart from being Templars and therefore bound to right ethical behaviour even in the face of persecution and victimisation, also personal grievances in relation to the honour of Agatha, abused by that small curr represented by John who sold England to be the Papacy’s Fief and handed over his illegitimate daughter Alice to a man who had hung her great uncle.
The Welsh, I am sorry to have to say, had since the danish invasions of Roman Britain become bastardised by intrmarriage with the barbarian invaders. Its best people had escaped in fact to Brittany.
Whilst it is quite possible and highly probable that King Henry VIII had Ferrers' blood through both Alice and a daughter of the 8th and last Earl of Derby also forced to marry a LLwellin of Wales by the Plantagenets, his welsh blood had become so mixed with Danish one that he was fundamentally a barbarian with at least one thousand years civilisational-gap in relation to that of celtic/roman families.
It is all a matter of DNA-inprinting through historical/evolutionary experiences in spite of our modern naive views of democratic equalities.
We can all improve ourselves by self-criticism, asking for God's Grace and working with God at improving ourselves so as to get under what Galatians 3:28 calls the Spirit's influence that makes us all equal in front of God.
Else we all are what evolution, history and knowledge makes us with our differences. No one is perfect but some are more so than others.
However, even the Plantagenets paid for their sins, paradoxically so through a king whose fmale ancesty has two Ferrers ladies, while the Ferreri/Ferrari are still around to-day, about to be gathered together again by God.
