About Raoul "le Guader" l'Anglais, comte d’Est Anglie (Norfolk et Suffolk)

Please see the excellent and well-researched biography of Raoul l'Anglais at https://broceliande.brecilien.org/Ralph-de-Gael, with many references to academic research of Katherine Keats-Rohan and others.

Ralph "the Staller" of Norfolk, also called Radulfus Anglicus (Ralph "the Englishman"), was part English by birth, given his cognomen "Anglicus". He was the first known lord of Gaël at Rennes County, Normandy. He was possibly, tantalizingly, indicated in unreliable sources, as distantly related to the rebel English noble, Hereward the Wake.

Ralph was an influential figure as the steward of King Edward the Confessor, acting as Staller, or constable, between 1043 and 1066. Ralph held land in eastern England, in the counties of Essex, Suffolk, and Norfolk, as well as Lincolnshire.

Ralph supported William of Normandy in his conquest of England in October 1066. He was granted the earldom of East Anglia by William the Conqueror. An 1890 edition of the Encyclopedia Britannica notes that "The Earldom of Norfolk and Suffolk was Bestowed by the Conqueror upon Ralph le Guader."
