BHO reports that "There was no ancient manor of Mansergh; the place was anciently a hamlet of Barbon and was often described as "in Barbon". In the fifteenth or sixteenth century two ancient freeholds came to be known as the estates of Mansergh Hall and the Nether Hall. ... No certain or continuous descent of Mansergh Hall can be deduced." It then mentions "Adam de Manesergh occurs 1180-1200". Later, BHO reports: "The Nether Hall appears to have been in the possession of the following members of the local family: Adam de Manesergh, who died in 1206". In a self-indulgent attempt to pull together the genealogical information provided by BHO, we presume that the Adam de Manesbergh of Mansergh Hall (a 1180, 1200) was the same person as the Adam de Manesbergh of Nether Hall (d 1206) and provide the following but note that it is highly speculative and should certainly not be viewed as reliable.

  This is where we 'get serious' with this pedigree. After Richard, BHO mentions Christopher of Nether Hall (d 1568) then William who, with his wife Jane, sold "Nether Haule otherwise Mansergh Haule" c1590 (sb 1580?). BIFR1976 starts with Brian of Barwicke Hall (d 1529) whose son George's son William "m. his cousin Jane, only surv grandchild and heiress of Edward Mansergh, of Nether Hall (sold 1579)". The following would fit that report but should still be thought of as speculative.
