Nigel de Aurenges was a premier baron of the Palatinate of Cheshire, 1st Constable of Chester within Lyme, the latter being a district afterwards known as Lancashire. (A Constable was an officer of rank, to whom was committed the command of soldiers, with the charge of the horses, armour, and other munitions in the time of war.) Nigel was also cousin and marshal to Hugh de Abrincis, upon whom William the Conqueror conferred this Palatinate.

William FitzNigel, Baron of Dalton, Lord of Knaresborough, and Constable of Chester, married Agnes (daughter of Robert de Gant, see GANT). At the Domesday Survey he was tenant-in-chief in Cheshire. He died before 1130.

Agnes (daughter & coheir of William) married Lord Eustace FitzJohn (see FITZEUSTACE).
