    Re. ?La Monceals?:
    There are several communes of the name of Monceaux in Normandy. Le Provost considers the one in question is in the neighbourhood of Bayeux, and the seat of the family of Drogo de Monceaux, the second husband of Edith de Warren, widow of Gerrard de Gournay. Either Drogo or his son of the same name witnessed the foundation charter of Dunstable, in the county of Bedford, temp. Henry I, and the name is of frequent occurrence in later documents.
