An undated charter of Henry II King of England refers to the transfer of the priory of Sigy to a new site by "Hugo de Gornaio"[1714]. "Dominus Hugo de Gournaio et Milesend uxor illius" founded Clairruissel priory, with the consent of "filiorum nostrorum Girardi et Hugonis", by undated charter[1715].
