Son of Gilbert de Saint Leger (1120-1175), chevalier (Knight)

Note on All Saints Parish Church of Ulcombe:
All Saints, built of Kentish ragstone, is a fine buildif Norman origin. It is larger than would be expected in a small village due to the fact that a College of priests was established at Ulcombe by Archbishop Stephen Langton around the time of the Magna Carta, on the petition of Ralph St. eger, and alterations were made to the structure to reflect the importance of the College.
