  • Notes 
    • "The name de Normanville should be added to our list of Scottish families whose origin lies in Normandy, more specifically at Normanville in the Grand Caux. Hugh de Normanville (d. c. 1214) managed to survive the extortions of Philip II Augustus's acquisition of Normandy and brought lands in Scotland, England and Normandy which passed to his grand-daughter and co-heiress, Annora, and thence to her de Soules husband. The family continued to flourish in both Scotland and England and while the seals and painted arms are not identical across the border, they incorporate the same elements or charges (birds or fleurs-de-lys) on a bend or fess accompanied by bars gemelles."
