Families covered: Greenhalgh (Grenehalgh) of Brandlesome, Greenhalgh of Teversall (Greenhaugh of Tiversalt)

Dugdale spells the family name throughout as 'Grenehalghe', except for one generation where 'Grenehalgh' is used, although the editor uses '"Greenhalghe' for the title of the pedigree. We normally follow the Isle of Man site which uses 'Greenhalgh' throughout.
