Travers Family Genealogy Forum
Several months ago, I made a copy of some pages of a book at the Family History Library in SLC titled, "A Pedigree with Biographical Sketches of the Devonshire Family of Travers, Descended from Walter Travers of Nottingham, Goldsmith", by S. Smith Travers. This book was written long ago and I could not find the date. In the book on page 83, it states:
Travers or de Trevieres, from Treviers near Bayeux and Caen, Robert de Treviers or Estrevers, t. Will. I., m. a daughter of Ranulph Meschin, sister of Ranulph Viscount of Bayeux, Earl of Chester. He had issue only a daughter, his heiress; but collaterals existed, of whom, in 1165, was Ralph Travers. The name continued in Normandy, where Ranulph de Clinchamp, after 1138, assumed the name of Travers. Of this family was the famous Puritan preacher Walter Travers.
