Dear Newsgroup ~
[Edited due to length, rest of post can be found on the GEN-MEDIEVAL-L Archives.]
Furthermore, I find that Complete Peerage, 6 (1926): 171 (sub Grey of Wilton) shows that the 1371 pleadings are incorrect in yet another matter, namely, the parentage of Reynold (or Reginald) de Grey, son and heir of John de Grey. In the 1371 pleadings, Reynold is made to be the son of John de Grey, by Emme de Glanville. Complete Peerage, on the other hand, states that Reynold de Grey was the son and heir of Sir John de Grey of Shirland, Derbyshire "by his 2nd wife, Emma, apparently widow of John de Segrave, who d.s.p. 1230, and daughter of Roger de Cauz, by Nichole, daughter and heiress of Bartholomew de Leigh." As evidence that Sir Reynold de Grey was the son of Emme de Cauz, not Emme de Glanville, Complete Peerage states the following:
"All the manors, whether derived from the families of de Leigh or de Cauz, to which this Emma was heiress are found in the tenure of John de Grey or of his descendants shortly afterwards."
