Family notes:

·         1206, A Benedict Gernet died seised of the serjeanty of the forest of Lancaster.

·         A Roger Gernet and Quenild his wife were in early records of this time [e.g.1235]. They had no children. Roger was the chief forester of Lancaster. Both died in 1252. [This Roger is more likely the forester since the successors were of the family Dacre. Because of duplication of names the genealogy is not clear.]
