Thomas William Glanvill was educated at Rugby under Mr Arnold. Later he was placed by his guardians to study farming under Mr William Runciman of Birchmore (believed to be Doxford) Bedfordshire.

Thomas married William Runciman's daughter Cathe Moody in 1820. They lived in Westminster for more than a year after their marriage. Then they purchased the estate of Pickford Lodge, Ticehurst. William and Cathe lived there for ten or twelve years and then he returned to London, so that William could study medicine at the Middlesex Hospital, during which time they resided in Oxford Terrace W.

Subsequently Dr Glanville practised in Sutton Courtney Berks., and later in Windsor.
He was reputed by those who knew to be a very clever Surgeon.

Excerpt from Kanssen Family Notes transcribed from handwritten document (1927)

The following transcription was provided by Mike Kanssen. (Thankyou Mike.) He says that the notes were written for his mother when she was born, probably by Irene Frances de Carteret Ollard (1887-1958).
It is good to see that the document confirm some of the notes above. Although the date of William's death conflict with the newspaper announcement.
I have emphasised some of the names.

Edward Glanville father of Thomas William & Emily (wife of Edward Simon Stephenson) dies in 1807 leaving his two children wards in Chancery. He lived in de la Haye St, Westminster.

The Treehurst Estate was purchased for his son Thomas William Glanville on his marriage with Katherine Moody Runciman.

The three Tigers heads alluded to are the Runciman arms & are quartered with T W Glanville's in light of his marriage with that family.


The Glanville are a very old family of Norman descent the original home was 'Kilworthy' Tavistock at some time the family - or some of them - moved to 'Catchfrench' St Germans near Plymouth. It is marked on modern Ordinance maps and appears to stand in a small park. It was from Catchfrench that Elizabeth Glanville came when she married Simon Stephenson. Until quite recently Glanvilles have been living at Catchfrench & they may be there now (1927) The old house has been rebuilt.

In the arums of 'the Ancient family of Glanville of Devonshire' now in the possession of the Rev S R G Murray the 'e' is omitted (i.e. Glanvill).
