Families covered: Colvile of Carleton Colvile, Colvile of Newton Colvile

Possibly connected to the family of the Colviles of Bytham Castle was the following Robert though the coat of arms attributed to him by BLG1952 (argent, a cross fleuri gules) is very different to the arms of that family. Note that we have a temporary section on the Colviles of Newtown, co. Down, who were probably descended from the family below in a way presently unknown.
