There is a motte and bailey style castle in Lincoln, England on which construction was begun by Ivo de Tallebois, one of William the Conqueror's generals.  He named it after his daughter, Lucy.  Hence, "Castle Lucy."  Ivo was my 38-great grandfather; Lucy was my 37-great grandmother.

 

I made this discovery in 2015 when I was in Lincoln for official reasons.  I do genealogy as a hobby, and made the discovery while sitting in my hotel room across the street from Castle Lucy.  I took the tour the next day, and told the worker I'd be collecting all the entrance fees from then on, "because it's my castle."  :)
