It is really something to sing and dance about.
Dig up those old bones and get them dancing!

Change the two party system
so people against something like abortion
but for something like environmental protection never again get bigger and badder storms
and two bankrupting wars instead.

Glanville : Glanville of Bromholm, Glanville of Felstede, Glanville of Glanville, Glanville of Stukeley
Glanville-Richards' book, loses credibility by making claims that certain of the family's members were Earls of Suffolk in the 12th-13th centuries. It is possible that Glanville-Richards simply misinterpreted some ancient documents, possibly thinking that "Comes" or "Comites" should always be interpreted as Count and hence as Earl a mistake which would be forgivable in an amateur but surprising in a 'serious academic', but his claims for the existence of such a major title have not been accepted by competent historians. Nonetheless, the rest of his work seems to merit attention.
Gl28.Rainald, Sire de Glanville b about 1020 a 1054
Unfortunately, we must start with a caveat regarding the next generation. 'Historia Anglorum' identified more clearly below provides a table which shows an unnamed Glanville as father of 1 Robert father of William who founded Broomholm, 2 Roger de Bertune father of Robert father of Hervey father of Ranult the Justiciar, 3 Nicholas and 4 William, Archdeacon & Dean of Lisieux. However, some text within 'Historia Anglorum' which we have not read at all thoroughly appears to contradict its table, indicating that Roger de Bertrune was son of Robert. Provisionally, we follow Glanville-Richards mainly using the pedigree at the end of the book with occasional trawling through the text and just add some of the details provided by 'Historia Anglorum' on Nicholas.

m Matilda
Gl25 Ralph de Glanville, Sheriff of Yorkshire, Lancashire, etc. b about 1140 d 1190-1, Lord Chief Justice & Treasurer of England. This Ralph is identified by Glanville-Richards as Earl of Suffolk which claim appears to be wholly spurious.

Gl24 William de Glanville b about 1165 d 1228
Gl23. Gilbert de Glanville b about 1190 d 1266
Glanville-Richards suggests that this Gilbert, whom he describes as 3rd Earl of Suffolk, forfeited his title for his support of Simon de Montford's rising against Henry III.
Gl22-1 Ralph de Glanville b about 1214
i Maud de Glanville
m Sir William de Vesey of Ireland
Glanville-Richards suggests that Sir William was created Earl of Suffolk in 1326 in right of his wife but that claim appears to be spurious.
a Sara de Vesey
m Robert de Peyton of Ufford
This Robert de Peyton was grandfather of Robert de Ufford who, according to TCP Suffolk, was created 1st Earl of Suffolk in Mar 1336/7. TCP Ufford names Robert's wives as Mary widow of William de Say and Joan, providing little information about them but not making any connection at all with the Vesey or Glanville families.

Gl25-2 William de Glanville of Broughton
Glanville-Richards identifies William's wife as Gundred de Warrene, dau of William, 2nd Earl of Surrey, and relict of Roger de Newburgh, Earl of Warwick, and of William de Lancaster of Kendal. Noting that such a marriage is not mentioned in TCP Surrey and that Gundred's 1st marriage was in 1130, her 2nd c1154, we are suspicious of that identification.

m Sir Thomas Astleigh Astley of Eastleigh a 1263
Glanville-Richards suggests this connection with the Astley family but we have not yet reconciled it with TCP Astley.
Gl25-6 Hervey de Glanville
Glanville-Richards suggests that this may have been the 'Hervey Walter' whom we show on Butler01 as married to Matilda de Valoines dau of Theobald de Valoines, Lord of Parnham, and sister of Bertha, wife of Ranulph Ralph de Glanville - see above and ancestor of Butler Earls of Ormonde. We doubt this as we believe that, had it been a serious possibility, it would surely have been mentioned in TCP Butler which does confirm that Hervey Walter's wife Matilda was sister of the above-shown Bertha and that "This circumstance greatly contributed to the advancement of the Butler family."

Gl27-2. William de Glanville d by 1113, Archdeacon & Dean of Liseaux or Lisieux in Normandy
As indicated above, the following Nicholas is reported by 'Historia Anglorum' History of the English People by Henry, Archdeacon of Huntingdon edited & translated by Diana Greenway, Oxford Medieval Texts, 1996, ISBN 0198222246, found on Google Books. VCH Huntingdonshire, vol 2, Little Stukeley mentions that "At the time of the Domesday Survey 1086 two knights, Richard and Hugh, held three hides of the abbot. Possibly one of these knights was father of Nicholas, archdeacon of Huntingdon ob. c. 1110, the father of Henry of Huntingdon, the historian, who apparently succeeded his father as archdeacon".

A Paul de Stukeley a 1279
i Ralph de Stukeley a 1308
It is not known whether or nor Ralph was ancestor of later families who took the name Stukeley or Stewkley eg those shown here. VCH Huntingdonshire, vol 2, Great Stukeley mentions a Nicholas de Stukeley d c1377, son of John & father of Sir Nicholas + John but it is not known if there was any connection between Ralph and that Nicholas.
