  • Notes 
    • From the Oxford Dictionary of National Biography:

      Jollan de Neville's first involvement in public affairs took a military form, when in 1230 he went on Henry III's expedition to Brittany. In 1234–5 he served as a justice itinerant in Yorkshire and Northumberland, on the circuit led by William of York. Later in 1235 he was an assessor of that year's aid from knights' fees in Lincolnshire. Engagement in royal business did not prevent Neville's attending to his own affairs. Between 1233 and 1236 he engaged in litigation in defence of the franchises of his manor of Shorne, while in 1238/9 he was sued by both the king and Richard, earl of Cornwall, over the marriage of a ward.

      In January 1241 Neville was appointed to inspect the king's castles in Lincolnshire. But he was soon once more employed on judicial business, serving as a justice itinerant under Robert of Lexinton in the west and north of England between April and November 1241. In July it was ordered that he be paid 20 marks for his expenses. In Michaelmas term 1242 he became a justice of the common bench at Westminster, a position he appears to have retained until his death. But he also acted as a justice of assize and gaol delivery in Nottinghamshire and Lincolnshire in 1243, and as a justice itinerant in Middlesex in 1244, and in Norfolk and Suffolk in 1245. A fine records his presence in the bench on 20 January 1246, but he was dead by 5 October following. […]

      The suggestion that the elder Jollan de Neville gave his name to the collection of exchequer records known by 1298 as the Testa de Nevill appears to have been first made in Dugdale's Baronage of England (1675). No evidence survives to support it, and in any case Jollan's expertise was judicial rather than financial.
