MANDEVILLE Family HistoryThis name, with variant spellings Manneville, Manville, Manvell and Manwell, is of French locational origin either from Manneville (seine-inferieur), Manneville (Calvados), Manneville-sur- Risle (Eure), or Magneville (La Manche). The first three places are named from the Germanic personal byname Manno denoting a (strong) man, plus the Old French "Ville", a settlement, and the last mentioned place is so called from the Old French "magne, great, plus "ville", a settlement. One, Geoffrey de Mandeville, created Earl of Essex in 1141, came from Seine Inferieur, and the Mandevilles of Earl's Stoke and Devon hailed from Magneville (La Manche). One, William de Manevell was recorded in 1210, "Curia Regis Rolls of Berkshire" and a William de Manewell in the 1296 "Subsidy Rolls of Sussex"...
