Early Origins of the Munsey family


The surname Munsey was first found in Normandy (French: Normandie), the former Duchy of Normandy, where the family has been a prominent family for centuries, and held a family seat with lands and manor. The family were well established in the region of Calvados and held a family seat in the arrondisement of Bayeux and several members of the family distinguished themselves through their contributions toward the community in which they lived and were rewarded with lands, titles and letters patent confirming their nobility. William de Moncels, who held allegiance to the Bishop of Coutances, was himself a Lord of Maers and Monceaux, counts of Nevers. He accompanied William the Conqueror into Normandy and was granted extensive lands in Devon and Somerset in England. The family were descended from Landry, first count of Nevers in 868. They descended Bodo I, seigneur of Maers and Monceaux.
