  • Notes 
    • From Wikipedia ("William Greville", retrieved 12 Sep 2018):

      "William Greville (died 1 October 1401) (alias Grevel, Graville, Grevill, etc.), of Chipping Campden in Gloucestershire and a Citizen of the City of London, was a prominent wool-merchant and is the ancestor of the present Greville Earls of Warwick. The Latin inscription on his ledger stone in Chipping Campden Church, which he rebuilt at his own expense, describes him as flos mercatorum lanar(iorum) tocius (totius) Angli(a)e, "the flower of the wool-merchants of all England". [...] He was amongst the richest and most influential wool merchants of his era and was the leading purchaser of wool from the Cotswold Hills."
