Map of Fiefdom of Blondel in Island Guernsey

Guernsey, second largest of the Channel Islands. It is 30 miles (48 km) west of Normandy, France, and roughly triangular in shape. With Alderney, Sark, Herm, Jethou, and associated islets, it forms the Bailiwick of Guernsey.

The Feif Blondel is comprised of many regions of South West Guernsey including inner city and ocean front regions.

The Fief and Feudal Lords of Blondel came about through the medieval fragmentation of Fief Au Canelly which was created in 1020AD.

T he Fief de Thomas Blondel was born with the medieval fragmentation of Fief Au Canelly & consequently, of the initial half of Guernsey given by Duke Richard II in 1020 to Neel, Vicomte of the Cotentin.

 

The Canelly family owned land near Cherbourg in Normandy in addition to the Guernsey territory (There is no existing record of the grant of the fief). It may have been granted to the Canely family but there is a gap of at least 100 years before any record of that family’s connection with the fief).  

 

In 1270, on the death of Sir Henry Le Canelly, the Guernsey fief was divided between his daughters.  

 

Guilemette, the wife of Henry de Saint Martin obtained a considerable part of the island originating later the fiefs of Janin Besnard, Jean du Gaillard, Guillot Justice and Thomas Blondel.  

 

This was confirmed by the tenants and officers of the Fief in letters patent issued by Guernsey's Royal Court under the Bailiwick Seal in 1463.  

 

A Thomas Blondel was a jurat of Guernsey’s Royal Court from 1421-45. The Blondel family has given several jurats to the island.
