[This first 2 sections below were first launched on 13.02.22 in a Temporary page. They were moved here after review led to acceptance that there was little chance of our making a significant improvement to them in the near future and that it was 'good enough' to be promoted into the main database.]

(1) The following is shown on this page because 'The Genealogist's Guide (George W. Marshall, 2nd edition, 1885) cross-references Mennis (Mennes or Menys) with Mynne (or Mynnes) indicating that they were probably different spellings of connected families. It is noted that they are all in the South of England. Any family of the name of Mennis (Mennes or Menys) that was in Scotland would probably have been connected with the family of Menzies.
