Lancashire Lasseys

Lasseys live in Lancashire, Yorkshire, the US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, France, Togo and other parts of the world. The names Lassey, Lacy, Lacey, Laci, Lascy, DeLacey, DeLacy and similar names derive ultimately, I believe, from the ancient De Laci family of Normandy, France. I can trace my immediate family to the area around Whalley Abbey that has many associations with the De Laci family.

A history of Ilbert De Laci and his descendants can be found in Chapter the Second, Lords of the Honor of Clitheroe in the book Whalley Parish and the Honor of Clitheroe by Whitaker. The De Lacis were members of one of the powerful families that crossed the English Channel with William the Conqueror in 1066 and were given large tracts of land in East Lancashire and West Yorkshire. Drop me a line if you're interested in the Lassey family or visit Worldwide Lassey Genealogy on Yahoo or the Lassey Genealogy Group on Facebook.
