Families covered: Gregson of Sherrow Hall, Gregson of Turnditch

FMG shows alternative ancestries for Henry of Sherrow Hall (b c1582), reporting that the first one was "attested by Henry St. George, Richmond, Herald, in 1633" and identifying the second one as "found among the papers of John Milnes, Esq.". Somewhat arbitrarily, reflecting some caution about any pedigree that stretches back many generations and provides many intermarriages with well-known families, we give precedence to the latter but provide the former in italics.
