Granville 1: Granvile of Bideford, Grenvile of Kilkhampton, Grenvile of Stow, Grenfell of Taplow
1 We use Granvile for the page title because that is the spelling used in BLG1886/1952 by the descendants shown on the continuation page at Granville02.
2 This page was originally built on data obtained from various web sites which did not identify their sources in a convincing manner. The page was redone on 07.01.09 to accommodate information found in the Visitation. This produced various differences. We are not convinced by the Visitation and, in the absence of a more authoritatve source, repeat what we had found on other web sites so as to make clearer how we have developed this page. We suggest that this page be viewed with some caution.
