f The ancient family of PERROTT derived their name from Castle Perrott, in Britanny, built in 957, by William de Perrott, whose great-grandson, Sir Richard Perrott, Seigneur de Perrott in 1066, furnished William of Normandy with his quota of ships and men, accompanied the expedition to England, and settling in Somersetshire, commenced the building of a city, whose remains are north and south Perrott, between which the river Perrott rises and runs into the Severn. Sir Richard left issue by his wife, daughter of Sancho Ramyno, second king of Aragon, a son and heir, SIR STEPHEN PERRoTT, who, growing too powerful in the lands heinherited in Somersetshire, King HENRY I. called him thence, and gave him as much territory as he could conquer in South Wales, which was then in confusion. He was thus forced to leave, with regret, the infant city his father had founded; and to which he had given the name of Perrott; but not being able to contest it with Henry, he went into Gloucestershire to raise forces. Not willing, however, to lead his troops into a country of which he knew nothing, he went to Wales in disguise, in order to view the state of it, and was there struck with the beauty of the Princess Helen, daughter and sole heir of Marchin, descended from Howel Dda, King of South Wales. She was no less charmed with his graceful stature, his amiable and majestic countenance, and most wonderful brilliant and piercing eye, which commanded reverence from all that beheld it.
