the Wood is an authentic Norman title. The Seignuers (Free Lords) of Blondel existed before formal Baron
titles were created. Fief Blondel is part of the former large Fief of Canelly, once held by William de
Chesney (1284) and before him by the Le Canellys until the separation of Guernsey from Normandy in 1204. Fief
Blondel is on the South West portion of Guernsey.
