      The Thorntons were originally fair-haired Norwegian Vikings. The
      family has been traced back to Firgot, about 13 generations before
      Rolla. The Norse spelled Thornton as Thurston. William, The
      Conqueror, from Normandy, was the great-grandson of Rolla. William,
      the Conqueror, was crowned King of England in 1066.
