Mandeville (noble family)

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Mandeville was one of the most important families in the decades of Anglo-Norman England. It comes from the Norman place (Thil-) Manneville (Magnavilla, Mannevilla).

After Geoffrey de Mandeville had already been enfeoffed with large estates, especially in Essex , which his son William de Mandeville lost in part, his grandson Geoffrey de Mandeville († September 1144) was not only restituted, but was even appointed Earl of Essex . With William de Mandeville, 3rd Earl of Essex , the family died out in the male line in 1189.
