It is really something to sing and dance about.
Dig up those old bones and get them dancing!

Change the two party system
so people against something like abortion
but for something like environmental protection never again get bigger and badder storms
and two bankrupting wars instead.

Nevill 5: Nevill of Holt, Holt of Pickhall Pickhill, Nevill Nevell of Ragnall Ragnell, Nevill of Rolleston
Ne24. Jollan or John de Neville BLG1886 Nevill of Nevill Holt reports that John was a son of John, lord of Pickhall, son of Geoffrey de Nevill by Emma de Bulmer. That is discounted because, had he been a legitimate son of that Geoffrey, he would have been Geoffrey's heir which was not the case. BLG1952 names him as Jollan, as does the whosyomama web site, and shows the connection we provide.

The whosyomama web site shows the following additional children of Jollan by Maud de Beauchamp ...
Ne21-1 Andrew Nevill, lord of Pickhill b about 1251 d
The web site shows this Andrew as father of Jollan de Nevill of Rollaston who, by Margart Fytting, was father of Thomas de Nevill of Rollaston who by Cecily, daughter of Ralph Blancminster was father of William with whom the site ends. There appears to be some confusion here with the Andrew of Pickhall and Rolleston whom we show below as father, by Cecilia Blanchminster, of a William.

Ne21-5 John

Ne22-2 Sir Andrew Nevill, lord of Holt, Pickhall and Rolleston The following is as reported in BLG1886 Nevill of Nevill Holt. BLG1952 Nevill of Kewland Hall formerly of Nevill Holt starts with the William Nevill of Holt who died in 1516 and was grandfather of the heiress Margaret. This removal of the following generations from BLG1952 might suggest concern that the following is not fully secure. Note the possible connection given by the whosyomama web site, reported just above.
