Just a clarification.
Was the John Greenwell that was in court case with Ignatius Gough,
was he a son of Stephen Greenwell who married Mary Eleanor Taney
daughter of Thomas Taney and Mary Neale?
>and who is this : Named as "James Greenwell of Stephen".
I don't have all the children of Stephen Greenwell but
William Combs, bapt. 3/12/1766 at St. Andrew's Epis. Married Elizabeth
Manning before 1798. He chose Stephen Greenwell as his guardian,
6/1780. He was designated Exec. of the will of his brother-in-law,
Matthew Medley in 1788 but refused.
I also have another Stephen Greenwell who married Monica Norris.
Perhaps I have a break in my links. Was the Stephan Greenwell who
married Monica Norris the parents of the Stephen Greenwell who
married Mary Eleanor Taney?
Which Stephen Greenwell are you refering to?
