  • Note:
    Suffolk, other creations: Shortly after the Norman Conquest and Earldomconbining Norfolk an d Suffolk was conferred on one Ralph the Staller[Staller was a functionary of some sort in th e Saxon Royal Court]. Atthat time, and seemingly for nearly three centuries afterwards, nodi stinction was made between Norfolk and Suffolk for the purpose ofconferring titles based on c ounty names, the two areas being conflated asthe land of the East Angles. In any case, wit h Ralph's death a few yearsafter he was created Earl the title apparently passed back into th epossession of the Crown, though within another year it seems to have beenconferred on Ralph' s son, called Ralph de Gael from a fief he held inBritanny. The second Ralph, Earl of this s omewhat shadowy creation,rebelled against William I (The Conqueror) in 1075 and was strippe d ofhis titles and lands. [Burke's Peerage, p. 2761]
