Families covered: Glynn of Glynn (Glyn of Glyn), Glynn of Liverpool, Glynn of Morval

(1) BLG1952 reports that this family "undoubtedly derives its name from the ancient manor of Glynn ... (near) Bodmin, in the parish of Cardinham".
(2) BLG1952 starts its pedigree with Thomas de Glyn (a 1327) but provides a little information about earlier generations in its preamble, including notice that Thomas was "apparently a younger son" of the senior line. The following connection with that senior line is presumptuous and so is shown in italics. After consideration of the dates, in particular the dates of the heiress Johanna and her husband Sir John Carmynhow, we presume that Thomas was in fact son of a younger son.
?? de Glyn
1. Sir John Glynn of Glynn, Cornwall
  A. Johanna Glynn (d 1349)
  m. Sir John Carmynhow (d before 08.11.1329)
2. ?? de Glyn
  A. Thomas de Glyn (a 1327, 1380)
  m. Olivia
  i. Henry Glynn (a 1370)
  m. Johanna
  a. Thomas Glynn "whose son was, almost certainly" ...
  (1) Thomas Glynn of Lanhydrock
m. Jane Cliker (dau/heir of William Cliker of Cliker)
  (A) Thomas Glyn of Glyn, Cornwall (b c1427)
  Thomas re-acquired Glynn from the Hugh Courtenay who married Margaret Carminow who was descended from the Johanna Glynn who is shown above as heiress of Glynn. BLG1952 suggests that this Thomas was the first mentioned by Visitation (Cornwall, 1620) but in fact, as far as we can see from the copy we have of the Harleian Society's version of that visitation, that was his grandson.
