If you wish to contact other Glanvilles...

I have been collecting GLANVILLE information as part of my own researches.

People are sharing information about Glanvilles at This Message Board

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.
Note that some of the contact details may be up to 20 years out of date
