French term or phrase: du lieu de X
Question about wording in referencing 16th-century family deeds: is there a reason that some of the surnames are followed by 'du lieu de Ners' whereas others are followed simply by 'de Ners'? Would this mean that, for instance, 'Claude PRIVAT du lieu de Ners' would translate as 'Claude Privat, of Ners,' whereas 'Baptiste PRIVAT de Ners' would stay 'Baptiste Privat de Ners'? (Or does the capitalization give me my answer?)

could it be that Privat de Ners is just the guy's full name?
