William Fitz-Ansculf was a Norman-French landowner who succeeded his father, Ansculf.  William inherited many lands in central England that had been granted to his father, Ansculf de Picquigny by William the Conqueror after the Norman conquest in 1066. William made his base at the Saxon, Earl Edwin’s, castle in Dudley, Worcestershire. He and his successors were overlords of the manors of Selly Oak and Birmingham both of which had previously been owned by Wulfwin.
