Families covered: Arthur of Doncaster, Arthur of Glanomera
[This page was initially named 'Arthur1'. It was renamed on 06.10.17 to enable a new page, covering earlier generations, to use that name.]

(1) It is unlikely that there was any connection between the family shown in the top section with those shown in the lower sections. They share the page for our convenience.
(2) Of the following family, BLG1912 reports that "The Arthurs are stated to have been originally "Artureighs" and to derive their descent from a common ancestor with the O'Briens, viz., Cormac Cas, King of Munster. The name, it is further asserted, was anglicised, in common with many others, on the invasion of Ireland by Henry II, who is stated to have conferred honours and grants of land on one of that name in 1178."
