This is the main page for searching my published information in my One Name Study on the surname GLANVILLE (including common variants)
I am very open to corrections and additions to the information here, noting that it is the surname I am following so time precludes me researching and recording names of related people who through marriage have different surnames.
I have a separate database with records of all my own relatives, regardless of surname (see Content / Omissions below)
Jay's Genes (above) takes you to the Genealogy part of my website.
If you bookmark a page below this one, it is almost certain to change it's URL as I maintain the data in this study

This database is searchable, but you need to understand how to search...
Unless someone born after about 1925 is known to have died, they are presumed living and will NOT appear here.
Because prior to the 1800s records were written phonetically, even within a single family they may have have appeared as Glanvil, Glanful, Glantfill etc at different childrens baptisms, marriage, burial etc. This makes it hard to know what to search for in source records.
From 1900 onwards there has been virtually no change in spellings, so I have used the actual spelling found in the more recent records.
GLANFIELD, although deriving from the same source, appears to have crystallized into a different and consistent spelling (although sometimes GLANDFIELD, and mispelt GLANFEILD) before parish registers become established. Therefore I am in the process of standardizing the Glanfield branches to use that spelling (alone) instead.
