  Research Notes:

From Wikipedia - Geoffrey de Mandeville (11th century) :

Geoffrey de Mandeville (d. c. 1100) was Constable of the Tower of London. His surname comes from the town of (Thil-)Manneville (Magnavilla, Mannevilla)[1] or Magna Villa near Valognes in Manche on the Cotentin Peninsula.[2]

An important Domesday tenant-in-chief, de Mandeville was one of the great magnates of the reign of William the Conqueror . William granted him large estates, primarily in Essex , but in ten other shires as well. He served as sheriff in London and Middlesex , and perhaps also in Essex, and in Hertfordshire .

He married firstly Athelaise (Adeliza), by whom he had a son William, and a daughter Beatrix (Beatrice), and possibly others. He married secondly Lescelina, by whom he had no children. About 1085 he and Lescelina founded Hurley as a cell of Westminster.

His lands were inherited by his son William de Mandeville . His daughter Beatrix (Beatrice) was the wife of Geoffrey, whom some have speculated was a natural son of Eustace II, Count of Boulogne .
From Ancestral Roots, Line 158A-23:

"While the holdings of Geoffrey de Mandeville were not nearly as great as those of Eustace of Boulogne, he was a very substantial landholder in 11 counties..."
