Although TCP (Grandison) notes that the father of Otho and William may have been Amadee, Sn de Granson, it suggests that their most probable parents were ...

It is not known whether or not the following family has any connection with the Gresleys of Gresley.
Albert de Grelle or Gresley, 1st of Manchester
1. Robert de Grelle or Greslei of Manchester (a 1134)
  A. Albert de Grelle of Manchester (a 1134)
BE1883 shows only one generation of Alberts here, reporting that he died about 1185 and m1. Agnes (dau of Nigel, Baron of Halton) m2. a dau of Thomas Basset. We shows 2 generations of Alberts which follows TCP (which does not show their wives) & CTG, which does not identify who was the younger Albert's wife (possibly that Basset?) but names this Albert's wife as ...
  m. Matilda (dau of William FitzNigel, lord of Halton)
  i. Albert de Grelle of Manchester (d c1185/before 1182)
  m. _ Basset (dau of Thomas Basset)?
  a. Sir Robert (Roger) Grelle of Manchester (b c1175, d 1230)
  m. (Margaret) de Longchamp (dau of Henry (sb Hugh?) de Longchamp)
  (1) Sir Thomas Grelle of Manchester (d c1261)
  (A) Robert Grelle
(i) Sir Robert Grelle of Manchester (d c1283)
  BE1883 (Gresley) identifies the father of Lord Thomas, and wife of Hawyse de Burgh, as Thomas and shows him as son of the Sir Thomas above who died c1261. We follow TCP.
  m. Hawyse de Burgh (dau of John de Burgh of Wakerley)
  (a) Sir Thomas Grelle of Manchester, Lord (b 08.08.1279, dsp before 11.10.1347)
  m. (before 02.11.1299) _ Wake (sister of John Wake)
  (b) Joan Grelle or de Gresley (d 20/1.03.1352/3)
  m. (c12.1294) John La Warr of Ewyas Harold, 2nd Lord (b c1276, d 09.05.1347)
  ii. Emma Greslei
  m. Orme FitzAilward of Ormskirk



Roger de Grendon (a temp Stephen who r. 1135-1154)
1. Richard de Grendon
  m. Margaret
  A. Sir Robert de Grendon of Grendon the first mentioned by TCP
  m. (c1189) Avicia de Bray (dau of William de Bray or Brae of Shenston)
  i. Sir Robert de Grendon of Grendon and Shenston, Sheriff of Staffordshire and Salop (a 1265)
  m(1). Emma Basset (dau of Sir William Bassett of Sapcote)
a. John de Grendon not mentioned by TCP
  (1)+ issue - Henry, Thomas, Nicholas, Robert, Ranulph
  b. Sir Ralph de Grendon of Grendon and Shenstone (d before 25.12.1279)
  Assuming that TCP is correct, BE1883 appears to confuse the marriage of this Ralph with those of his son, not naming his son's wife/wives but naming this Ralph's 1st wife as Johanna and his 2nd wife as A. de Clinton by whom he was mother of 3 daughters. We follow TCP which confirms that the 3 daughters were half-sisters of the next Ralph. This leaves no definite place for Joane de Grendon, shown by BE1883 to have been sister of Ralph, 2nd Lord, and married to John Rochford (by whom she had Sir Ralph, father of Margery). TCP mentions an Isabel, wife of John de Rochford, as claiming a dower from Robert de Grendon so she may have been a sister of this Ralph.
m. Isabel (a 1307, she m2. Theobald de Neville of Alexton)
  (1) Sir Ralph de Grendon of Grendon and Shenstone, 1st Lord (d c1331)
  m1. Joan Burnell (probably dau of Sir Hugh Burnell, sister of Sir Philip)
  (A) Sir Ralph de Grendon, 2nd Lord (dsp 1364/5)
  BE1883 reports that Ralph was "a person of weak intellect" but TCP reports that he was "a soft and esy mon" but did act as a Sheriff of Stafford.
  m1. (div 1355) Isabel
  m2. Eleanor
  m2. (by 1299) Joan de Clinton (dau of Sir John de Clinton of Coleshill)
  (B) Johanna de Grendon
  m. Sir Roger Chetwind
  (C) Alicia de Grendon
  m. Sir Philip Chetwind (d 1346)
(D) Margaret de Grendon
  m. John de Freford
  m3. Sibyl (a 1348)
  (2) Alicia de Grendon
  Shown by BE1883 as a generation earlier but this is presumed to be the Alice who married John, apparently brother of the Joan shown above as married to her brother.
  m. John de Clinton
  b. Alice de Grendon probably of this generation, presumed of this marriage
  m1. Philip de Legh of Staffordshire
  m2. (1269) Robert Banastre of Newton (b c1240, d 1291)
  BE1883 suggests that Sir Robert and Avicia had a younger son Roger. TCP identify their other children as ...
