John Gresbrooke of Middleton1

M
     John Gresbrooke of Middleton was the son of John de Gresbrooke.2 In September 1404 Thomas Oudeby, clericus, sued John Gresbroke of Middleton to render him a reasonable account for the time he was his Bailiff in Shenstone. John did not appear, and the Sheriff returned he held nothing within his Bailiwick, etc. He was therefore ordered to arrest and produce him on the Quindene of St. Hillary.1

John Gresbrooke of Shenstone1

M
     John Gresbrooke of Shenstone was the son of John Gresbrooke of Middleton.2 He witnessed a grant in 13 Edw. 4 (1473) and was named in a concord in 21 Hen. 7 (1506). Grazebrook's pedigree probably cannot be trusted beyond this point.

Robert de Gresbrooke1

     Round dismisses the whole Yorkshire line of this family which was propounded by Grazebrook in his Pedigree of the Family of Grazebrook of which Robert son of Roger de Gresboc in Yorkshire is supposed to be a cadet line. Much of the early part of the subsequent Staffordshire line can probably also be viewed with suspicion.1

Katharine Gresley1

F
     Katharine Gresley was the daughter of Sir John Gresley of Drakelow and Colton and Elizabeth Clarell.1 Katharine Gresley married John Cawarden, son of Sir John Cawarden and Elizabeth Malveysin, Katherine, who is only mentioned as having married Sir William Peto (occ. 1430, d. 1464-5) who was a son of William de Peto (d. 1406-7) by Joan daughter of Sir John Thornbury and subsequently wife of Sir Robert Corbet. William and Katherine had a son John, born in about 1434 (d. 1487-8), who in 1453-4 married Eleanor Mantfeld.

It is possible that this Katherine had previously married John Cawarden, of Mavesyn Ridware, before 1426, and had a son John and several other children by him: but as her husband survived her and married secondly Margaret Boteler and did not die till July 8, 1475, there is some unexplained mystery. Possibly there were two sisters Katherine, or conceivably a divorce.1,2,3

DUE WEST, S.C. — Nellie Grier Sewall passed away on Feb. 25, 2008, at the Due West Retirement Center in Due West, S.C., with her family present.

Nellie was born in Clover, S.C., on Feb. 9, 1925, to the Rev. William Pressly Grier and Nellie Bigham Grier. She was the fourth of five children: Paul, William "Kit", John Miller, Nellie and Rachel. She was graduated from Erskine College, Due West, S.C., in 1942. In 1949, she married John Ladd Sewall; they resided in Newport News, Va., for 58 years. A founding member of Hidenwood Presbyterian Church, Nellie attended Women's Circle for years and was elected to be the church's first woman elder.

After her children were grown, she worked for 12 years as an administrative assistant for a financial planning firm. She took sailing lessons, tennis lessons and art lessons; she enjoyed being outdoors and slaved over her yard. Her love of fish and seafood is almost legendary.
