I hope this helps, if any one can add to what I have, it would be greatly appreciated.
"CHATEAU DE GORRON"
While making a trip through northern France in July, 1891. I visited Gorron ("Gorram").It is in the Province of Maine, about twelve miles from the city of Mayenne. nine miles from the railroad, and a quiet little farming village.Very near the Pition Hotel stands the ruins of the ancient "Chateau De Gorron" built in 1199.Enough remains to show the outlines of it: Houses and shops have been built so close to the old walls that from the road and little streams running through its grounds notmuch can be seen, except the fragments of one corner tower thatstands perhaps forty feet high, topped by a modern roof, and contains two rooms; the lower one with its ancient fireplace has never been restored, the upper room being the only one now used. A small portion of another corner remains, only a rough ivy-covered wall.
At La Tanniere, I was shown the site of an earlier "Chateau De Gorron", which is now occupied by a modern church.Giles De Gorham, son of William, took the cross from the hands of William, Bishop of Mans, in the company of Geoffrey, son of Jubell II, Lord of Mayenne, and one hundred and eight other knights, in the church of St. Mary of Mayenne, A.D. 1158.He returned with only thirty-five of his company from the Holy Land, November 7, 1162, the rest having died in the Sinai for the faith.In this latter year probably as a pious acknowledgement of his preservation from the Infidels, he made grants to Savigny Abbey of lands in La Tanniere.(A fac-simile of his seal, representing a knight-in-armor, is given by Rev. George C. Gorham, in his notes, Vol. V.)
ST. ALBANS CATHEDRAL AND GORHAMBURY HOUSE
"Some of this family must have followed the Conqueror into England, for at the time of the Doomsday survey, William, son of Gorham, was a tenant of land in Chippenhall, near Fresingfield, Suffolk of Henry of Bourdeaux."
"The De Gorrams can be traced in Brittany to the beginning of the twelfth century.Their castle was situated on a small rivulet called Futaye, at La Tanniere, seven miles west from the town of Gorram, ("from which place doubtless the family name originated") and twenty miles northwest from Mayenne."
"The castle of Gorram, now called Gorron was granted in 1135 by Geoffrey Plantagenet, to Jubell II, Lord of Mayenne."
Geoffrey De Gorram was descended from a noble family of Caen, Normandy.He was sixteenth Abbot of St. Albans.He built the (first) Manor House in Gorhambury Park.His tomb is in St. Albans Cathedral.
John De Gorham, the last of the Hertfordshire family of that name, who possessed the manor of Gorhambury. In 1307 the aforesaid John and his wife Isabella, sold the revision (after the deceased of the survivor of Eister.) The estate of Gorhambury Park thus passed out of the Gorham family, which appears to have been extinct in Hertfordshirein the early part of the fourteenth century.Gorhambury continued with the Abbey of St. Albans till the dissolution.It was granted by Henry VIII to Ralph Rowlitt, Esq.From him it passed to Sir Nicholas Bacon, father of Lord Bacon.It is situated in the midst of a beautiful park, and contains a good collection of portraits.
William De Gorham, the last possessor of that name of the Manor of Churchfield, in the parish of Oundle, Northhamptonshire, was living in 1338.
