Families covered: Fleming of Bratton, Fleming of Derpatrick, Fleming of Fleming Hall, Fleming of Slane, Fleming of Stephenstown

Some suggest that the following family descended from Anselm le Fleming but it appears that Anselm lived at the same time as (or just after) the following Archambald.
Archambald de Flanders of Bratton (a 1087)
1. Stephen FitzArchembald of Bratton (a 1145)
  A. Archembald le Fleming, 1st of Slane (a 1165, to Ireland)
  BE1883 numbers the Barons of Slane from this Archbembald. Of the barony, TCP reports "This was one of the Irish Peerages which were recognized by Henry VII in 1489, but of the origin of which nothing is known, the probability being that the holders developed from barons by tenure into peers of the realm without any formal creation."

a. Baldwyn le Fleming, 3rd of Slane (a 1260)
  (1) Richard le Fleming, 4th of Slane (d 1301)
