Records of the Anglo-Norman house of Glanville from A.D. 1050 to 1880: Rainald or Ranulph de Glanville was Lord of Glanville circa 1040 and he, about 1064, witnessed a charter in favour of Robert de Mowbray (Gall Chris xi 60 Ins). His son Ranulph de Glanville, "Le Sire de Glanville," entered England in the train of William Duke of Normandy and was a witness, with William the Conqueror & Matilda his Queen to the grant which Walter Giffard, Earl of Buckingham, made to the Monks of Cerasie in Normandy (Mon Angl original ed 960). He also gave his house in Jakesley to the Monks of Eye (Davy's Suff Collection from an old Chronicle 423). His brother William de Glanville was Dean and Archdeacon of Liseaux in Normandy 1077 (Hist Lit de la France etc). By his wife Flandrinat he had issue Robert de Glanville William de Glanville Walter de Glanville and Sir Hervey de Glanville He is not mentioned in Domesday Book he might have died before the survey was made or returned to his Lordship in Normandy.
HERVEY DE GLANVILLE: son of Randulph de Glanville, Lord of Glanville and younger brother of Robert and William de Glanville, was born in the reign of William Rufus. In the time of Henry I he distinguished himself in many of the affairs of State of things connected with his own Counties of Suffolk and Norfolk and with those relative to the realm at large. On the accession of Stephen to the throne, Sir Hervey de Glanville filled the important office of Chamberlain to that King and no doubt took part in many of the disturbances which happened during his reign. In the year 1147 a large fleet was equipped at Dartmouth numbering 164 vessels and manned by English, Germans, and Flemings, commanded by Count Arnold de Arscot "nepote Godefridi," Christian de Gistellis the leader of the Flemings and men of Boulogne, and Hervey de Glanville who commanded the men of Norfolk and Suffolk, Simon Dorobernens and Andrew who led the men of London, and Saher de Arcellis. Before they set out on their journey articles were drawn up that they all should formally agree to observe concord and friendship, religion and morality. On the 23rd of May 1147, they set sail from England and two days later the fleet passed Brittany. The next day, the 27th, they hove in sight of the Pyrenees and on the 29th of the same month the fleet experienced a dreadful storm. "Auditse sunt interim Syrenes horribilis Sonitus prius cum luctu postea cum risu et cachinno quasi insultantium castrorum clamoribus;" they then made for San Salvadore in Spain which they reached on Ascension Day and from thence proceeded to Ravadeo, thence to Cape Ortegal and Ferrol arriving on the 7th June 1147 at the mouth of the Tambre; the fleet proceeded to the Island of Flamba and to the mouths of the Rivers Minho, Cavado, Cive, and another river not named, and at last arrived at the City of Oporto. The Crusaders received a fitting welcome from the Bishop of that city, and King Alfonso addressed a letter to him concerning them on June 16 1147. On the 17th the Crusaders from all the ships assembled and listened to a sermon preached by the Bishop, the words of the text being "Beata gens cujus est dominus. Deus ejus populus quem elegit in hsereditatem suam sibi." Psalm xxxiii 12. The Pilgrims waited ten days for the Count of Aerschot and on the 26th of June again set sail and made for the Island of Phoenix Peniche which they reached on the 27th near which are two islands called Baleugas. Between the Island of Phoenix and Oporto are rivers and castles. On 28th June the fleet sailed from Peniche and arrived at Lisbon. The tract then goes on to describe Lisbon inhabited as it was then by the Saracens and Cintra, the population, religious liberty, and the Christian remains in that city. On the 28th of June Arnold, Count of Aerscot, Christian de Gistellis, Hervey de Glanville with the men of Norfolk and Suffolk, Symon Dorobernens and Andrew with the men of London   Saher de Arcellis landed with the men from the fleet and at once attacked the City of Lisbon afterwards encamping close to the suburbs. On the 29th the Moorish King sent Ambassadors to treat with the Crusaders who held a council before sitting down to their meal dinner, whilst they were at their repast the Flemings agreed to join Alphonso. William Vitulus (Calf) opposed the proposals made by the Ambassadors of the Moorish King and induced the majority to unite against him. Then Hervey de Glanville stood up made a speech. ... The Archbishop of Braga then addressed the people, and the Saracens in a long speech answered him, upon which the Bishop of Oporto challenged the Moors to fight; then the soldiers under Hervey de Glanville, Saher de Arcellis, Count Arnold de Aerscot, and the other commanders attacked the suburb, and after a time were successful in their endeavours to capture it and made their camp for the night in a cemetery. On the following morning, the 1st July 1147, the Moors renewed with vigour the battle but were repulsed and driven back into their city. Sundry other attacks were made by them, and they took every opportunity of insulting the Christian army. Two churches were built in the suburbs for the use of the Pilgrims. About the 15th, the Pilgrims commenced to build machines in order to use them against the walls of Lisbon. Between August 3rd and 15th, the engines of the Germans and Flemings were burnt whilst those of the English being imbedded in the sands suffered the same fate. The Germans commenced a mine which much dismayed the Moors. Letters were sent to the King of Evora who answered them and also gave orders that his own forces should be dismissed In the next engagement between the English and Normans with the Moors at Elmanda, five men were taken prisoners by the latter. The mines were now extended and new engines were made and in September the English built a great tower. A famine took place in the city and on the 16th October a breach was made in the walls by the Germans, but they were repulsed. On the 19th the English tower was completed and blessed by the Archbishop of Braga on which occasion a certain priest preached a sermon from Romans xiii 7. After this the tower was advanced to the walls and on the 20th the engine was brought up against one of the towers of that city, the defenders of which were driven by our men from the wall. In the night, the Moors tried to set it on fire with seven men of Ipswich in a Welsh Cat, for the second time our engine was flooded and the Germans deserted the English. Now the Britons advanced their machine nearer to the wall and also brought out their bridge and whilst they were in the act of throwing it from their tower to the wall, the Moors begged a truce which was granted them and hostages given by the Moors. On the 22nd October the Moors capitulated at which their old enemy King Alphonso was dismayed .A priest from the city of Bristol rebelled and raised a mutiny against Hervey de Glanville. After this the King deliberated with the two hostages.
SIR GERARD DE GLANVILLE, son of Sir Hervey de Glanville and brother to Lord Ranulph de Glanville, the Chief Justiciary, was one of the Barons who took part at the coronation of King Richard I on the 3rd September 1189 at Westminster. In the year 1208 Gerard de Glanville in company with William de Cornhull is mentioned as being engaged in ecclesiastical matters in Lincoln. He espoused firstly Emma daughter of Thomas de Cukeney who founded the Abbey of Welbeck in the county of Nottinghamshire tempore Henry II.
HENRY was son of Sir Gerald de Glanville and nephew to the celebrated Justiciary, and about 1216 he was in possession of one knight's fee of the honour of Dramele.

He also held lands in Somerset, in 1213 De Glanville and his wife Philippa with consent of his heirs granted to Osbert de Bradleia and his heirs for the said homage and service his lands in Church Cnolla Knolle which Robert, the son of Osana, held of the fee of Witona. For this donation Osbert de Bradleia paid to Henry de Glanville "in recognitionem" twenty shillings to Philippa de Glanville his wife, two shillings to Galfrid de Glanville his son one shilling, and to John the son of Galfrid also one shilling. The witnesses to this deed were Henry de Stokes, Roger de Glanvill, Richard de Stokes, Robert de Clavill, Will Clico de Stupel, etc .Henry de Glanville married Philippa daughter of Lord de Gant .The arms of this alliance are still to be seen at Richard's Castle. The issue of this marriage was Geoffrey (Galfrid) de Glanville and Margaret de Glanville. Geoffrey de Glanville, Lord of Wooton Glanville, succeeded his father in this and other lands. Gilbert the son of Osbert de Cnolla granted to the Parson of Cnoll a moiety of one virgate of land and common of pasture in the village of Church Cnoll Kuolle and he paid yearly to Geoffrey de Glanville eighteenpence. For this donation the Parson paid to Gilbert one mark and to his two sisters half a load of wheat.

Collections towards a history of the parish of Hampstead-Norris [a paper]. By Walter Money: Gilbert de Gand.Our English genealogists consider this person to have been the son of Baldwin de Mons brother of Queen Matilda of whom we know no other descendants but Arnulf and Baldwin. The truth is that Gilbert was brother of Baldwin de Gand lord of Alost and son of Ralph. His name appears as witness to a document at Alost on his return from England the 25th May 1075. By his wife Alicia de Montfort he had a son named Hugh, founder of the family of the lords of Montfort barons of Cocquanilliers. He survived his eldest son named also Gilbert. His third son Walter inherited all his estates in England. He had besides two daughters, married the one to William constable of Chester the other Emma to Alan de Percy. He held a vast number of manors in capite by grant from William the Conqueror. He was the restorer of Bardney Abbey in Lincolnshire and he was one of the small number of Normans who escaped the massacre by the Danes at York in 1069. He is supposed to have died about 1094.
