Chancellor George Mentz, Seigneur of Fief Blondel is the Lord Chancellor of the WAC Worldwide Anglican Church ( Anglican Orthodox Church ). 


The Fief of Thomas Blondel in the parishes of Torteval and St. Peter in 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.

 This is St. Peter's Anglican Church in the Fief with the Ancient Graveyard. The steps of this Church is where the Seigneur or Lord conducted his Feudal Court for hundreds of years. This church's other official name is St Pierre du Bois. This Church is the Honorific Caput of the Seigneur and Barronie of the Freeholder Feudel Fief of Blondel.

Year 1054 in Torteval - Part of Canelly and Blondel lands bounded on the west by the property of Guillaume Blondel and on the east by that of Thomas Dumaresq. AKA Thomas Blondel

From the Cartulary of Mont-Saint-Michel we learn that in the year 1054, William Pichenoht, moved by compunction for the many and great sins he had committed, and desirous of taking the monastic habit in that renowned monastery, gave, with the consent of Duke William of Normandy, his lands of la Perrelle with all their appurtenances to the Abbey. These lands were, no doubt, leased out afterwards by the Monks to various individuals on the terms usual in those early days, the Abbey retaining the Seigneurie or Lordship
over the whole.

St. Apolline's Chapel

In October 1392, a certain Nicholas Henry, of la Perrelle, obtained the consent of the Abbot and Monks of Mont-St.- Michel, as Lords of the Manor, to the endowment of a Chapel which he had lately erected on his estate, subject, however, to the sanction of the Sovereign as Lord Paramount.

Nicholas Henry applied to the Crown for the necessary permission, which was granted by King Richard II. n July 1394.

The Charter, which is preserved among the Records of the Island at the Greffe, authorizes Nicholas Henry to endow the Chapel of Salute Marie de la Perrelle
for the purpose of maintaining a chaplain who was to celebrate a daily mass for ever, for the safety of the said Nicholas Henry, and his wife Philippa, for their souls after they should have departed this life, and for the souls of all their ancestors, benefactors and Christian people generally. The Charter given by the Abbey exempts three vcrgees of land, attached by the founder to the Chapel, from payment of all dues on the condition of his charging the whole of his property with an annual rent for ever of one bushel of wheat.

The Royal Charter describes the endowment as consisting of land of the value of twenty sols annually. Besides the three vergees of land, which it is not un-interesting to note are described as being bounded on the west by the property of Guillaume Blondel and on the east by that of Thomas Dumaresq, both of which families are still land owners in the district, Nicholas Henry also gave to the Chapel an annual wheat-rent of Four Quarters due on a piece of ground adjoining.

This Chapel is of the Old Fief Blondel territory.
