Obviously I would love to hear if you have corrections or additional information - but bear in mind
this is a repository for United Kingdom Glanville information and I do not have the
time to include more than the first generation of emigrants. Also I will only be publishing information
on deceased individuals.
I have been contacted by a number of people researching the name Glanville with whom I have
not as yet established any common ancestry.
Until such time as I integrate their records with mine, I offer space
on this website for them to publish sufficient information for other Glanville researchers to
determine whether it would be worth contacting them.
This section of the website will grow as I add brief details and a contact for each Glanville
researcher availing themself of this facility.
I stress that these people are NOT as yet known to be related to me, so please do
NOT enquire about them of me, but use the appropriate contact below.
