This Bible has been passed down through my Husband's Family. It belonged to his Great Grandmother, Mary Etta Neville Haptonstall. Mary Etta Neville was born to James E Neville and him to Benjamin Franklin Neville. The one this Bible came from. Benjamin was born to James R Neville. From there I am not too sure but I do believe that they are in the family line of John Neville who immigrated to America on The Ark and the Dove but I am not 100% sure. I do know that the Nevil (Neville)(Nevill) line has a lot of English ties but wish I knew a little more. This Bible has the original Marriage Certificate of Benjamin Franklin Neville in it along with other Marriages, Births, and Deaths. It also contains OLD metal portraits. My Husband and I tried taking it to several Antique Shops to try to get a friendly appraisal but had no success. All they said is that it wasn't worth much even given the proven history yet they were very eager to try to convince us to sell it. We would just like to see if anyone knows anything about the Neville family or anything about Bibles of this sort from this time. I would greatly appreciate it.
