De Lacy (Lascy, Lacie, Lacey, Lacy) is an old Norman noble family originating from Lassy (Calvados). The first records are about Hugh de Lacy (1020 – 1049). Descedents of Hugh de Lacy left Normandy and came to England along with William the Conqueror. Walter and Ilbert de Lacy fought in the battle of Hastings. The family took a major role in the Norman conquest of England and Ireland. The family is linked to the Scottish royal family. Elizabeth de Burgh, whose great grand father was Walter de Lacy, married Robert the Bruce. Another link exists to the royal Windsor family by Sarah Ferguson via Wingfield, Meade, O´Brien, Fitzgerald, De Burgh and therefore back to Walter de Lacy and Hugh de Lacy.
