The "Ghistelles" Hours [I]

Over the course of  a few blog posts I plan to re-examine the provenance of the so-called Ghistelles Hours, and especially its oft-repeated association with Jan III, heer van Gistel, a.k.a. John III Ghistelles (d.1315), Lord of Ghistelles.

For this first post, why is the manuscript known as the Ghistelles Hours?
