INGELRAM de LIONS
The name is derived from the castle and forest of Lions in Normandy [Foret de Lyons is east of Rouyn]. Ingelram de Lions came to England in 1066 and held Corsham and Culington from the king. He had Ranulph, and another son William de Lions received a grant in Norfolk from Earl Walter Gifford and left descendants there.
Ranulph had Ingelram de Lions named Parcar, from being forester of Croxton, Leicester, by exchange with the king2.
William Parcarius de Lion was a benefactor to Croxton abbey during the reign of Henry II and was brother of Hugh de Lion, who was deprived of his estates in 1203. From him descended the family of Parcar or Parker and earls of Macclesfield; hence also the lords Lyon and Glamis, earls of Strathmore and Kinghorn.
King George VI married Lady Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon daughter of 14th Earl of Strathmore whose eldest daughter Elizabeth [present Queen of England].

History of Croxton Abbey
William, Earl of Boulogne, Moreton and Warenne, died in October, 1158, and Croxton manor, along with the patronage of the abbey, reverted to the Crown – to Henry II [1154-1189].
About 1176 he [King Henry II] exchanged Croxton and Sedgebrook for Corsham and Culington in the south of England. A family named Porter, originally coming from Liuns in Normandy, got two thirds of the places and a Masilia de Apgard one third. Both families and their descendants made considerable gifts to the abbey.

‘Croxton Abbey Records …. The most important correction to be made in the history of the Abbey is in the name and date of its alleged founder. His name is wrongly given in the Monasticon [Anglicanum] and by Tanner as “Ingeram Porcarius de Linus” … The anme is written quite cleary on FO.39 as portarius de Linus. “Engerannus Portarius” appears on the Roll of the Norman Exchequer for 1180 as having the custody of the castle of Beauvoir-en-Lions with that part of the forest of Lions which bordered on the pays de Bray.
