Interestingly, I was told we came over as Vikings too but from Norway !We went to Oslo some years ago and in the telephone directory there are loads of Isteds (with a circle over the I) !.

A relative from New Zealand traced my branch of the family back to the Hastings area in the 1500s. Apparently we were forgemasters in the old days. Another branch were "Jurats" of Hastings.
