John,

In Keats-Rohan, DOMESDAY PEOPLE, P 497:

Wimer Dapifer, Norman, Domesday tenant of William de Warenne, Dapifer of
William II de Warenne, in a charter for Castle Acre priory Osmund de
Stuteville, husband of his great-grand-daughter Isabel, referred to him as
'Wimar seneschal de Gressinghale'. By Gila Wimar left two sons, Roger and
Walter. Also two 'nepotes' Geoffrey and Sewalo. He died a monk of Castle
Acre. His hear in 1129/30 was his grandson William fitz Roger.

Does 'nepotes' in this context mean grandsons or nephews?

Bob
