IRHB comments

In the late 13th century, surnames had not yet become fixed. John son of Germanus le Petit might on some other occasion have been referred to as John le Petit, had he or someone who needed to refer to him in writing regarded his father's "nick surname" as a heritable surname. The involvement of the sheriff of Nottingham tells us that John son of Germanus and the other killers of Giles de Pavely were Nottinghamshire men. The fact that Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire formed one bailiwick in this period does not alter that conclusion. The record would have referred to the sheriff of Derby(shire), if it had been concerned with Derbyshire men. The sheriff at the time was William de Chaddewich or de Chaworth.[3]
