Hi George,

Thanks for data about the Grosvenor's. I have a slighty different version I have collected from the parish records for John and Rose Clayton details below. I also think that this branch has not been connected to the Cheshire/Will the Conq. branch, and seems to appear in Salop around the 1300/50's

Tony Grosvenor.
