1. William FitzRalph of Grimthorpe
  A. Ralph FitzWilliam of Grimthorpe and Greystoke, Governor of Carlisle, Lord FitzWilliam (d 1316)
  m1. ??
  TCP (FitzWilliam), which refers to the fact that his children did not inherit from the Bolebec family, reports that "Genealogists have agreed in asuming that Ralph had only one wife, Margery de Bolebec, and that she was mother of his children, but this is an error."
  i. William FitzRalph (dvpsp before 06.07.1297)
  m. (before 15.05.1290) Katherine
ii. Robert or Ralph FitzRalph, 2nd Lord FitzWilliam (d by 04.1317)
  BE1883, which names this Lord as Ralph whereas TCP (FitzWilliam) names him Robert, suggests that he was never called to Parliament. This may be why TCP identifies his son's summoning to Parliament as a new creation although, seemingly inconsistently, TCP (FitzWilliam) does indicate that Robert was 2nd Lord FitzWilliam. TCP (FitzWilliam) names his wife just Elizabeth but BE1883 identifies her as ...
  m. Elizabeth Nevill (d 17.11.1346, dau of ?? Nevill of Stainton (Lincolnshire))
  a. Ralph de Greystock, 1st / 3rd Lord of Greystoke (b 15.08.1299, d 14.07.1323)
  TCP identifies this Ralph as the 1st Baron Greystoke whereas BE1883 numbers him as the 3rd. We adopt a '1st / 3rd' numbering policy for him and his successors as they are sometimes referred to using the numbering of BE1883 rather than that used by TCP.

  (A) Ralph de Greystock, 3rd / 5th Lord of Greystoke (b 18.10.1353, d 06.04.1417/8)
  The following is supported by CTG (vol 2, 1835, 'Pedigree of Greystock', p160+) which starts with this Ralph but names his wife Isabella whereas TCP names her ...
