http://www.ancestry.com/facts/Sylvester-

The surname Sylvestre is a French variant of the surname Sylvester which is English and German: from a personal name (Latin Silvester, a derivative of silva ‘wood’). 
This was borne by three popes, including a contemporary of Constantine the Great. 

As the surname has more than one origin you would, as always, need to research your ancestors and learn their origins. 
Surname etymologies are generic and simply state the first know place a surname is recorded and may have nothing to do with the history of your family.



Sylvester Surname History

This name has its origins in a Latin given name, "Silvester", a derivative of the word "silva", meaning wood, and denoting "the dweller in the wood". 
The personal name was borne by three Popes, including a contemporary of Constantine the Great, and seems to have been first used in England by clerics. 
The personal name was first recorded in Leicestershire in 1154 as "Silvester", and in 1204, in Yorkshire, as "Selvester", and the surname first appeared afterwards as "Silvestr" (see below). 

The surname development includes: William Silvester (1250, Lancashire), and William Sevester (1455, Kent). The modern surname has a number of variants, ranging from 

Silvester, Selvester and Sylvester,  to Siviter and Seveter.

 One Abram Silvester, aged 14 yrs., was an early emigrant to the New World, leaving London in January 1634, bound for Virginia.

 A Coat of Arms granted to the Silvester family is a silver shield, with an oak tree eradicated green, and two red crescents in chief,
The Crest being a lion's head erased green. 

In Heraldry, 

the oak tree signifies Antiquity and Strength, 

and the crescent is associated with Faith and Hope. 

The first recorded spelling of the family name is shown to be that of Thomas Silvestr,

 which was dated 1212, in the "Book of Fees for Hampshire", during the reign of King John, 

known as "Lackland", 1199 - 1216. http://www.surnamedb.com/Surname/Sylvest"

Sheriff Role in Old England

Anglo-Saxon local government (700–1066 AD)[edit]

The Kingdom of Wessex, c. 790 AD, was divided into administrative units known as shires. Each shire was governed by an Ealdorman, a major nobleman of Wessex appointed to the post by the King. The term 'Ealdorman' (meaning 'elder-man') gradually merged with the Scandinavian Eorl/Jarl (designating an important chieftain), to form the modern 'Earl'. However, the Shires were not comparable with later Earldoms, and were not held in the Ealdorman's own right.
The shires of Wessex at this time have essentially survived to the present day, as counties of England (currently ceremonial counties). They included Defnascir (Devon), Sumorsaete (Somerset), Dornsaete (Dorset), Wiltunscir (Wiltshire), Hamptunscir (Hampshire). When Wessex conquered the petty kingdoms of southern England, namely Cent and that of the South Saxons, these were simply reconstituted as shires (modern Kent and Sussex respectively).
As Wessex took over progressively larger areas of Mercia, East Anglia and Northumbria, the new lands were divided into shires, usually named after the principal town in the new shire; hence Northamptonshire, Oxfordshire, Derbyshire and so on. Most of the historic counties of England (and modern Ceremonial counties) south of the Mersey and Humber derive directly from this time.


Another important official of the shire was the shire-reeve, from whence the more modern sheriff is derived. The shire-reeve was responsible for upholding the law, and holding civil and criminal courts in the shire.[1] The office of sheriff is still important in some Anglophone countries (e.g. the USA), but now a ceremonial role in the England



 

 

The early medieval period (1100–1300)[edit]

During the medieval period, local administration basically remained in the hands of the feudal aristocracy, who governed affairs in their fiefs. The enserfment of the population by the Norman system diminished the importance of hundreds as self-regulating social units since law was not imposed from above, and since the population was immobilised. Instead the basic social unit became the parish, manor or township.
The counties remained important as the basis for the legal system. The sheriff remained the paramount legal officer in each county, and each county eventually had its own court system for trials (the Quarter Sessions). Although the Hundred Courts continued in use resolving local disputes, they diminished in importance. During the reigns of Henry III, Edward I and Edward II a new system emerged. Knights in each county were appointed as Conservator of the Peace, being required the help keep the King's Peace. Eventually they were given the right to try petty offences which had formerly been tried in the Hundred Courts. These officers were the forerunners of the modern magistrates' courts and justices of the peace.

Ada De Balliol - Balliol married John FitxRober Clavering


House of Balliol


From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The House of Balliol (de Bailleul) was a Picard and Anglo-Norman family originating from Bailleul who began to rule some estates in England in the reign of William Rufus. In the late 13th and 14th centuries, two members of the house were kings of Scotland.
 

List of heads of the Balliol estates[edit]

Both Balliols had English support for their claims; both were deposed. Edward died without issue, but the Balliol descent continued through his cousin Christine de Lindsay (granddaughter of John II), who married Enguerrand V de Coucy, to the lords of Coucy and ultimately the Bourbon kings of France and Spain.
