Le Strange of Anglia and Eire, 2nd Edition (Extraneus : The Annals Quinquepartite of Strange Lives, Volume II, Books VI, VII & VIII)
Book VI, Le Strange of Hunstanton contains records of Knights and Esquires to the Body Royal. The Hunstanton Household Accounts (1485-1568) have been transcribed in two different ways. One chapter lists events chronologically while another chapter lists the names mentioned alphabetically. John R. Mayer's transcription of the Hunstanton Household Accounts may not be 100% complete although what he finished was substantial, making up about 55 pages of this book. The family of Sir Thomas le Strange is covered extensively including his serving as an esquire at the Field of Cloth of Gold. There is also some description of Hunstanton Hall. Book VII, L'Estrange and Styleman of Hunstanton includes the Baronetcy of Hunstanton and a lengthy article on the rather colorful and outspoken Sir Roger L'Estrange III (1616-1704). This book discusses the le Strange connections with the families of Astley, Calthorp, Styleman and Wodehouse, among others. Hunstanton Hall in Norfolk, England is described in some detail and also included is the story of the Ghost of the Needlework Bedroom: The Grey Lady. In Book VIII, the family le Strange in Ireland initially presided over a military outpost called Castle L'Estrange in Roscommon, but later established a pair of splendid mansions along the River Brosna at Moystown, Westmeath. The Irish branch L'Estrange produced some fine military officers, and some distinguished squires and clergymen. For further information, please see: http://www.arapacana.com/books/vol2.html
