Families covered: Colvile of Arncliffe, Colville (Colvile) of Bytham
[As reported below, the following families were both originally shown on CZmisc09. They were moved here when it was appreciated that they merited a separate page together.]

Possibly connected to family of the Colviles of Carleton Colvile was the following Philip. According to TCP, the arms of this family were 'or, a fess gules'.
Philip de Colvile in Yorkshire (a temp Stephen who r. 1135-1154) succeeded by ...
1. William de Colvile of Birham (Bytham) Castle, Lincolnshire (a 1216)
  m. Maude
  A. Roger (not Robert) de Colvile (a 1216)
  m. Beatrice (a 10.1265)
  i. Walter de Colvile or Colville, '1st Lord' (d 1276/7)
  BE1883 reports that Walter was summoned to parliament as a Baron but TCP reports that the writ "issued in rebellion, should not create a peerage dignity."
m. Isabel or Elizabeth
  a. Roger de Colvile or Colville of Bytham Castle, Sheriff of Norfolk & Suffolk, '2nd Lord' (b c1250, d 1287/8)
  BE1883 reports that Roger paid a fine in 1285/6 for permission to marry Ermentrude and suggests that Ermentrude was mother of his children. TCP does not mention her but identifies Roger's wife as Margaret de Brewes. TCP (Basset of Sapcote) identifies Margaret as mother of Elizabeth. We presume that she was mother of all of Roger's children.
  m(1). Margaret de Brewes (dau of Sir Richard de Brewes of Stinton by Alice, dau of William le Rus of Stinton)
  (1) Edmund de Colvile or Colville of Bytham Castle, '3rd Lord' (b 25.01.1287/8, d 1315/6)

(A) Roger de Colvile or Colville of Bytham Castle, 1st ('4th') Lord (b 20.10.1304, d before 06.05.1368)
  TCP identifies as the first 'true' Baron. TCP reports that he was succeeded by his grandson Robert, son of Walter. BE1883 reports that his son Walter succeeded but that Walter's son Walter (who dvp) was father of Robert, the last baron. We follow TCP.
  m. (before 22.05.1329) Cicely
  (i) Walter de Colvile or Colville (b c1340, dvp 1368)
  m. Margaret Bassingbourne (dau of Giles Bassingbourne, son of Humphrey of Abington)

  m2. (c1285/6) Ermentrude (widow of Stephen de Cressy)



Noting that the arms of the following family were, according to TCP, 'or, a fesse, in chief 3 roundlets, gules', it seems certain that the following family was a closely connected branch of the family just above.
