Xiineag'e. — Members of this ancient French family, which
dates from a.d. 1020, passed from Normandy to the Channel
Islands in the 15th century. In the records of the Cour
d'Heritage of Jersey, it was recorded in 1507 that Guillaumo
le EioUey, olias I'Hermite, sought redress against Helier de la
Hoque for seizing certain lands near the Mill of St. Helier.
In France this family was termed I'llermite de la Riviere, the
latter name being retained by the Jersey branch in its Norman
rendering, and the memory of the preacher of the first Crusade,
was preserved by the crest used by its members. Detailed
genealogies of this ancient and noble family are found in the
Nobiliare Universel of de Magny, Vol. VL, 1860, the works of
Peie Anselme, and the Archives of Paris and Brussels ; at the
latter place is found in the Bureau lleraldique a JIS. genealogy
dated 1645, and signed by the heralls and kings of arms of the
King of .Spain, which amply confi: jis the statements of Mon-
sieur de Magny.
