Manssyle History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms 

Early Origins of the Manssyle family

The surname Manssyle was first found in Kelso, Scotland where "this name first appears in connection with the Abbey of Kelso and shortly afterwards with the Abbey of Arbroath. About 1180 Andrew Maunsel or Mansel witnessed a charter of the church of Pencathlan to Kelso. Willelmus Manselmus witnessed William de Moreuille's charter of Gillemoristun to Edulfus filius Uctredi before 1196."

"Between 1198 and 1222 we find Andrew Maunsel witnessing charters by William de Veteri Ponte and Bernard de Haudene in favor of Kelso Abbey and also witnessing the charter of the church of Brennath (Birnie in Moray) to the same abbey. About 1200 he granted liberty to the Abbey of Kelso to build a weir upon part of his ground 'in le halech ex orientali parte ville de Roxbergh'" [1]
