It is really something to sing and dance about.
Dig up those old bones and get them dancing!

Change the two party system
so people against something like abortion
but for something like environmental protection never again get bigger and badder storms
and two bankrupting wars instead.

Fleming 4: Fleming of Aldingham, Fleming of Beckermet, Fleming of Caernarvon Castle Cumberland, Fleming of Coningston, Fleming of Gleaston Castle, Fleming of Rydal
[This page was completely redone on 13.02.09.]
Wotton identifies the first Michael shown here as "a very stout and active man, related to Baldwin, the fifth, earl of Flanders", who sent William to assist William the Conqueror, Baldwin's son-in-law. We have seen a web site which suggests that Michael was son of Rainer le Fleming, son of Hughes d'Oisy by Aud de Rumigny, which as far as we know would provide some connections to Earl Baldwin but not a blood relationship, but we have yet to see that supported by any traditional source.
Sir Michael le Fleming of Gleaston Castle in Furness Lancashire, Caernarvaon Castle Cumberland, Aldingham, etc. d 1150
m ?? de Stuteville dau of Robert de Estouteville or Stutevillename found on various web sites
1. Sir William le Fleming of Gleaston Castle in Furness Lancashire, Aldingham, Beckermet, etc
We have seen some web sites show William as grandson rather than son of the above Sir Michael, with the intervening generation being Michael d 1186 & Christian, dau of Gilbert de Stainton of Kendal. However, Wotton shows William as Michael's eldest son. The dates indicate that there could be a generation between them but Wotton notes that Michael did live to be a very old man.
