Good Day Mike:
I believe the William Revell mentioned and involved with the Bolton Priory in 1274 is none other than William Revell, son of Andrew Revell. This particular William had a son, Thomas Revell. I believe that Thomas had two sons,
Egidius Revell of Stoke Goldenton, County Bucks and John Revell of Crendon Bucks.
It was Egidius Revell that at Easter in 1359 the French King went to St. Leonard's Church, Bengeo, to hear a mass by the Black Monks of the Holy Trinity. While he was at the Church, his hounds worried and killed a sow belonging to Master Revell of Revells Hall. The King expressed his regret and paid Master Revell tens shillings compensation for the loss of the sow.
See Transactions of the Royal Historical Society, Volume IV page 245 by Rev. Charles Rogers, LL.D 1877 and also in Ecclesiastical Works of the Middle Ages, page 45 state.
"In this MS. (Harl. 391) there are several charters relating to lands in London. Folio 89 is the charter of William Revel (and Andrew his heir), by which he claims certain liberties of "Ricard. filii Ernaldi," the Abbot of Waltham. The Revel family were of considerable note in their time. A John Revel held the manor of Revel's Hall in the village of Bengeo County Herts, temp. Henry II.”
Prior to 1194, Robert de Burun granted their holding in Bengeo to the Revells from whom the Manor took its name of Revell Manor. Lands granted were in Cockenhatch and
were granted to William Revell, son of Andrew Revell. Geoffrey Revell owned this land in 1303.

Note: Bengeo is now known as the Parish of Waterford.
