Origen: Normando. First found in Norfolk where they held a family seat from very ancient times as Lords of the manor of Harling. Conjecturally they are descended from the holders of the village of Harling which at the time of the taking of the Domesday Book in 1086 consisted of a village with a church, two mills, fisheries, a beehive, and 180 sheep. The village of Harling on the River Thet in the middle centuries later became two, East Harling and West Harling. The holders of the land in 1086 were Godric, Ingulf, and Robert de Verly.
