    cFrom Wikipedia ("John Tame", retrieved 12 Sep 2018):

    "John Tame (c. 1430 - 8 May 1500) of Cirencester and of Beauchamp Court (or "Warwick Court") in the parish of Fairford, both in Gloucestershire, England, was a wealthy wool producer and merchant who rebuilt the surviving St. Mary's Church, Fairford, the former structure of which had been built by one of the Beauchamp Earls of Warwick in the 15th century. The 28 magnificent Fairford stained glass windows he installed in the church are considered amongst the finest and most complete in England. He and his son Sir Edmund Tame (d. 1534) so fostered the trade transacted at Fairford, that it came to rival that of the nearby long-established town of Cirencester, which increase was remarked upon by his contemporary the antiquary John Leland (d. 1552): 'Fairford never flourished afore the cumming of the Tames into it.'"

    The pedigree on page 260 of "Miscellaneous Pedigrees" in the Harleian edition of the 1623 Visitation of the County of Gloucester gives the father of Agnes who married Edmund Tame as "Sr Edw. Grevell." That this is a mistake was demonstrated by I. E. Gray in "The Greville-Tame Marriage" (citation details below), in which Gray reports discovering a 1501 business letter from "John Grevyll" that refers to Edmund Tame as his son-in-law.
