GREY

 

 

 

Note: The earliest generations of the first Grey family shown here seem unclear. For example, Burke’s Extinct Peerage makes almost all of them descend from the sons of one Henry de Grey and his wife Isolda. However, a table in The Complete Peerage indicates that only the lines of Grey of Wilton/Grey of Ruthin, Grey of Codnor, and Grey of Sandiacre (extinct 14th Century) descend from this couple, while showing Walter de Grey, Archbishop of York, and his brother Robert Grey of Rotherfield (this line extinct 15th Century), were not sons of Henry and Isolda, though Burke’s says they were.

 

Thus the families in Parts 1, 2-A, 2-B, and 2-C definitely stem from a common ancestor, as did the Greys of Sandiacre. Possibly also descended from the same male ancestor were the Greys of Rotherfield.

 

From a separate family, said to be from Northumbria, stem the Greys of Powis, as shown in Part 3, the Greys of Warke (Earl of Tankerville), as shown in Part 4, and the Greys of Howick and Earls Grey, as shown in Part 5. However, the exact relationship between these lines is also unclear.
