Families covered: Grey of Rolleston, North of Guildford (Guilford), North of Kirtling, North of Rougham

BP1934 uses Guilford throughout for the title of the Earldom. TCP (vol VI, p. 210) names its article on the title 'Guildford or Guilford' and uses Guilford in the text to the Earls of this family. We use the modern spelling of Guildford.
