|Notes for William FitzNeel Lord of Halton|
|Keats-Rohan has a long-ish article on him in which "Halton" is not mentioned once, though the other details of Agnes and Eustace FitzJohn are clearly stated. She names him clearly as "Willelm filius Nigelli", though gives no information on Nigel apart from a reference to "William fitz Nigel de Haga" where Haga is "de la Haye, of which there are several in dept Manche".|
He had a son William who dsp 1149 and Agnes is referred to as the "principal heiress".
Walter de Gand refers to William fitz Nigel as 'nepos meus' so there may have been some relationship (all Keats-Rohan).
Ormerod in his "Cheshire, Vol I, p. 692, shows William to be the son of Nigel, baron of Halton and son of Ivo, viscount of Contentin, Normandy.
EYC 12, 142-6 gives an account of the family and the descent from William Fitz Nigel.
|Fox-Davies' "Armorial Families", vol II, pp. 1740-1 |
in the article for Scrope, gives this quartering, No
15, for Nigel, baron of Halton:
Gules, siz lozenges conjoined in pale argent.
