Families covered: Neel of Jersey

'Armorial' (p295) implies that the progenitor of the following family was probably one of the Nigels or Neels "who shared with William of Normandy the glorious fruits of the victory of Hastings". It then mentions Neel de S. Saveur, Viscount of Cotentin, who "was one of the powerful Norman barons who revolted against William the Conqueror, and who, in addition to his large possessions in continental Normandy, held a moiety of the island of Guernsey".
