      Nigel de Monneuile

      Norman, from Monville, Seine-Maritime, arr. Rouen, cant. Clères, according to Loyd, 69, but much more likely to have originated in the west of Normandy, at Muneville-le-Bingard, Manche. Occurs in Domesday Book holding of a moneyer in York; his pposition in the entry suggests he was associated with Robert of Mortain. Among two charters granting land at Le Bingard to Mont-Saint-Michel, one of them by Humphrey de Cambernon, a vassal of Robert of Mortain, was a grant by a certain Ralph, hihis wife Asa and son Nigel (Cartulary of Mont-Saint-Michel, fol. 35r). He occurs in 1093-6 among the knights of the archbishop of Canterbury, following his marriage to Emma, daughter of William of Arques, lord of Folkestone. Founder of Folkestone priory, a cell of Lonlay, c. 1095, and also a benefactor of Bermondsey priory (Mon. Ang. iv, 672; v, 96) in 1103. His heir at his death c. 1103 was his daughter Matilda, wife of Rualon d'Avranches (d. 1130-4) (ibid, iv, 674). His widow Emma married secondly Manasser count of Guînes.
