Is there a City Library? There has to be a University there. One of
these is highly likely to have these volumes.

The Battle Rolls are the subject of an excellent booklet by Anthony J
Camp "My Ancestors Came with the Conqueror" published by the British
Society of Genealogists <www.sog.org.uk>. In it he gives transcripts of
articles that state that no more than 27 people can possibly be
identified who fought with the Conqueror. The Mandevilles are not
amongst them, much as they are in the various Battle Abbey Rolls, the
earliest known version of which dates from c.1436.

None of my sources mentions this latter name.

None of my sources give this.

None of my sources give this (I hink).

erroneously) Nargaret, da. and h. of Eoun DE RIE, Dapifer, of

Keats-Rohan, "Domesday Descendants", p. 566, says Beatrice was "Daughter
of Geoffrey I de Mandeville, married by 1086 to Geoffrey, natural son
of Eustache de Boulogne."

I have nothing of this in my sources: sounds like speculation, if not
also creative reconstruction.
