I believe my ancestors came from Spain. I have read of a Petros Stornell who was a Notorii in Barcelona in 1452. Does any one know what a notorii was and how I could find out more about him and his descendants? I was told that we were from a prominent family who were forced to flee Spain through political trouble. The family then went to England. There are Starnells and then Stunells in England. I will be visiting Spain next year, so would appreciate any suggestions for further research. Thankyou. Bob Stunell - Australia.
