James Lowell


Raffe Lowell


According to one source, Unknown (Baskerville) Lowell was a descendent of Norman nobility who came to England during William the Conqueror's conquest of the British Isle a few hundred years earlier. This information came from the Battle Abbey Roll, which was written years after the actual conquest so its content is questioned. In the years following the conquest in 1066, there is speculation that families added their names to the list when it was written to gain power, although in reality they emmigrated from Normandy after the battle itself.

In the Battle Abbey Roll the name is written as "Baskeruile."

This source also says that she was a direct descendent of Charlemagne.
